Soft and firm
This pair of leather handles :
- The rubber tube onto which we mount the handle is made from quality Finnish rubber
- The glue is Danish (very strong stuff) and of course the final stitching and assembly has a local Danish flavour
- Fits all standard handlebars diameter (22,2mm). If brake leavers or/and gearshift fits,the handles do as well.
The handles are nice to hold and little bit warmer for the hands than a piece of plastic. They have a classy look to them. When you get these, you may encounter some difficulty mounting them as the rubber is just tight enough to fit a normal handlebar. The trick is to either use pressurised air or to lubricate the inside with a generous amount of pure alcohol . If you are quick, you will be able to put them on, the alcohol will evaporate and the handle will be securely stuck on forever.If you for a reason want to dismounting the handles again you can only get them of by cutting them or use air pressure from a compressor.
Before mounting,remember to clean the handlebar,NOT using soap but alcohol or another solvent.
We deliver these in two versions: the classic version with two equally long bars or the version with one long and one short bar for the gear-side of the handlebar.
Tip: The black leather handles are really nice for black bicycles. They can also work on pale bicycles, but the saddle should also be black. In general it is wise to match the colour of the handles and the saddle.
