August 13th, 2013 – Using real deer antlers and recycled metal, New York based designer Taylor Simpson has created the Moniker Cycle Horns. The deep black horns are designed to add a dramatic and clever touch to the steering point of bicycles. Simpson says that he came up with the idea while on a road trip through the annual World’s Longest Yard Sale on Route 127, an event he goes to every year. During the epic yard sale, Simpson came across a cool pair of genuine deer antlers that a local man was selling somewhere in Kentucky. As an avid cyclist, Simpson thought it would be clever to create bicycle handlebars made of animal horns and antlers. After some fine tuning, and proper packaging, the industrial designer debuted the first Moniker Cycle Horns.
October 4th, 2012 – It is easy for Geoffrey Franklin, designer and owner of Walnut Studio, to create authentic and carefully crafted leather bicycle accessories. It has to be! Because every few months he whips out a completely new product that looks and functions at high quality levels. Most recently, a stylish hand-tooled leather box-shaped saddle bag. The bag is hand-finished, hand-stitched thick, and is constructed from stiff leather which attaches to your bike with a buckle closure and an additional leather twine to tie around the seat post. Franklin explained that the bag “Stays shut with a ‘common sense’ hardware closure, and contents are held secure with envelope flaps that fold into the bag.” The leather in the bag is made with USA-made unfinished tanned leather from a local company that I finished with a combination process including weatherproofing and dye. Available in “honey”/cognac, brown, black, or unfinished natural. ($72)

Last month Knstrct brought the Six Pack Holder for bicycle’s to your attention, and today, we bring you it’s awesome step brother, the Bicycle Wine Holder. Jesse Herbert is the Canadian based designer who put a lot of time into the research and development of this brass and leather concoction to achieve perfection in it’s fit and function. The brass hardware fits firmly onto a 1″ bike frame and adjusts to fit various bottles of wine. So when you’re riding down to the beach, throw a bottle of wine on board for a toast over a romantic sunset. ($25.00)
