My new ride is a Brother that instead of being a racer turned out to be a flâneur.

I made the sew-on bartape by myself. Went to a local leather goods manufacturer who sold me a few stripes from scrap pieces. I punched the holes for stitching, put the leather stripes in warm water for a few hours and then stitched them to the bar with a baseball stitch.

Everything else is self-explanatory.

Your bike just is spot on!!!
100% CLASS!!!

i am sooo full of envy right now!! :)


There are bikes, and there are *bikes*. This is the latter.

We have something in common with the leather. Nice work matching the Brooks saddle. Not easy to do, at least with my local leather supplier.

I just built up a set of H Plus Son Archetypes in polished finish. Had to order them direct from since they are not sold here in the States.

Thank you :) Indeed, you

Thank you :)

Indeed, you have quite many bikes and most of them have got sew-on bartapes.

Yes getting a fitting color wasn't that easy but I was fortunate... can't wait untill the bartape gets darker through use so that those areas match the dark area of the saddle.

This place sells

Thanks for the tip

But you can do way better ordering direct...also I needed 28's.
