Saddle #017 Ubuntu Bikes

We got to know Jamie Litt from Ubuntu Bikes through some of the social group rides around town and he’d hinted for a while that he might want us to do some leatherwork for some bikes he was building. We were obviously keen but didn’t realise at the time that the 6 saddles and handle bars he was wanting were going to need to be done in just 2 weeks to make it in time for an important photo shoot. Finger blister type deadline.

Each bike has been customised by an artist so we sat with each artist and discussed what their vision was for the saddle and handlebars and then added our creative energy to the mix and arrived at some very nice solutions.

The first of these is Bianca De Klerks Green Cycle. Brown tan leather saddle and full handle bar wrap with green stitching detail to pick up on the green theme of her artwork.
