BROOKS Saddle + ART = DAYUM SON. Check out Kara Ginther on her wordpress for more custom leather love.
So I was browsing for bike racks and I came across this company called quarterre, apparently they make furniture that to me looks very artistic and not out of place for bicycles.

Oliver Sweeney introduces The Compass Collection with shoes inspired by bicycle frames. Made with leather from England, these side stitched sneakers feature triple row stitching and shark’s tooth detailing with a reversed welt. The unique reinforcement patches on the toes are meant for additional protection when using toe clips and straps. Now available online.

Brooks England is known for their leather saddles and vintage products but in June 2013, they’re going to introduce their first non-leather saddle! Made from flexible natural rubber and an organic cotton top, enhanced by a thin layer of structural textile for added resilience. Honestly, I don’t really care about what it’s made from, Brooks are known for their legendary longevity and how their saddles can conform to your gluteus maximus beautifully. I want to try this out so much. If you want to try it out as much as I do. Brooks is looking for 100 testers worldwide to be the first to test their bottoms on this revolutionary saddle.
Brooks will select 100 individuals worldwide to participate in a final testing phase working up to the release of the Cambium. For consideration, please register by completing a short, 20-question survey.
The individuals selected will include men and women of differing body type and age, using a variety of bicycles, and importantly:
-33 will be long-time users of Brooks Leather Saddles
-33 will be cyclists using both Brooks Leather Saddles and other saddles
-34 will be cyclists who have never used a Brooks Leather Saddle
Should you register and not be chosen for the test, please be aware that all registrants receive a 10% discount to the Brooks online shop and become eligible for other special offers.
