Handlebar Grips and Other Projects

Posted on


It appears to have been nearly six months since I last wrote on this blog page, mainly because I simply haven't had time.  I currently have more work on the bench than ever before which is great, but is occasionally causing some delays in dispatch as I try to juggle the bike work with the saddlery business.  Ebay has proved to be particularly popular, though it does impose some hard to keep deadlines!

Leather Grips

I have just added a shop section for those wishing to add leather grips to their Brompton.  I am offering an adjustment and re-covering service for Pashley leather grips, using the same leather that I use for my "Classic Colours" products.  I can either re-cover grips supplied by the customer or supply them myself.  The pashley grips are certainly not a budget option, but should look good combined with the other leather accessories.  Due to the design of the M-Type, the grips are cut down to 4 inches, so those with larger hands may need to check that they will be suitable.  On the S-type the grips are a more conventional length.

Other Projects

Aside from the grips, I have not been working on any new products recently as I have been settling in the current range.  I have added two new colour variations for the handles (racing Green & Brown, and Jaffa Orange & Black) and still intend to order in some red leather in the not too distant future.  It is also my intention over the next few months to try and build up a bit of stock to help improve the delivery times.  In addition to the current work I also have a couple of possible collaborations in the pipeline.  Nothing is set in stone yet, but hopefully there will be some exciting developments in the future.
