Wanted: Six-Pack Bike Cinch


If you’re a bon vivant and a bike is your primary mode of transportation, then you’ve probably experienced the frustration of trying to ride while balancing a six-pack on the handlebars. This hand-sewn leather bike cinch from Geoffrey Franklin of Walnut Studio, which we spotted over on Urban Outfitters’ Portland blog, offers the perfect solution. Originally designed to hold bike polo mallets, it can secure “anything somewhat narrow to your top tube” — like beer! — and it only costs $22, which is a lot less than what you’d spend on an emergency room bill. Check out Franklin’s Etsy shop for other aesthetically-pleasing, handmade bike accessories, like a leather u-lock holster and an antique steamer trunk-inspired seat bag.
