Description

Beautiful leather Brompton carrying handles from Off yer bike. Hand made by UK saddle maker Jim Barrett. Functional and beautiful; makes a great gift for the Brompton owner. Stays on the bike, so you can easily carry your Brompton up stairs, onto train, buses and into your office building.

Available in Military Brown & Raven Black.

The designers of the Off yer Bike carrying handle had been using Brompton bikes for many years as part of their daily commute into London from their base in Kent. While loving the flexibility of the Brompton, they were frustrated by the awkwardness of carrying and maneuvering the bike when not riding it.

After developing and using several different designs on their own bikes, the designers finally came up with the Off yer Bike handle, a simple, high quality retro fit handle, which when fitted stays on the bike and enables riders to easily carry and maneuver their bikes onto trains, buses and cars when 'folded' and help carry the bike up and down steps and escalators and over obstacles when in 'ride ready mode'.

Construction of the Off yer bike handle

The Off yer bike handle is constructed in three distinct sections. One large pad, one small pad and a strong, robust thermo moulded rubber handle.  The large front pad, the stablizing pad, secures the handle to the main frame cross bar. The smaller rear pad also fits onto the main cross bar behind the narrower diagonal tube and guarantees the handle is positioned in the ideal place for perfect balance when carrying the bike when both folded and in 'ride ready mode'.

Two velcro straps, one on the large front pad and one on the smaller pad lock the pads into place and prevent movement along the frame and a high quality leather backing on the pads eliminates any lateral movement around the main frame tube.

The thermo moulded rubber handle which joins the two pads together has been designed to a specific length and height so that users can carry the bike from either side when folded or in 'ride ready mode'.

    This handle makes transporting my Brompton so much easier. As a short woman, using only the seat handle to carry my bike up stairs was still tough. This handle makes carrying my bike up the two flights of stairs to my apartment so much easier. I use it to get my bike over curbs, to carry it down stairs. People think it came with the bike because the leather edition compliments my Black Edition black Brompton so well. I'm glad the leather edition is available because I'm a little picky about keeping the all-black look of my bike. I tried a couple of other handles before finding this one. One looked like an ugly diaper on the bike. The other didn't distribute the weight as well. I highly recommend these handles!
