Leather is a fantastic material and we think its completely underestimated in its use when designing and building a bike. It immediately softens up and gives texture to what can sometimes be the very cold and hard finish of metal and paint.
This is why when it came to our latest adventure we found a small British company specialising in all sorts of handmade leather goodies called Born and Bred. We used a couple of their fantastic belts over the course of the trip and we wear them most days in the workshop, they are built to last and both the buckle and thick leather strap oozes quality.
