Brooks Cambium C17: Kangaroo Leather



I upholstered Kumo Keith's well ridden Brooks Cambium saddle using kangaroo leather to top off his beautiful new randoneur bike revealed at Pushies Galore this weekend. Some have said that it "isn't so vegan any more". Never mind. Thanks to Robert for the awesome photos.

Kumo Cloud Storm: Specialized Romin


The Kumo storm cloud with perforations of rain drops

This weekend of the Melburn Roobaix Will flew in from Dubai to collect his shiny new Kumo all rounder travel bicycle. Keith fit the saddle and installed the tape with a seven strong audience in my studio while on Friday afternoon I was somewhere else celebrating the 'end of an era'. As of today I no longer work at RMIT University - I am full time Busyman.

The paintwork is luxurious and the detailing exquisite

The rain drop motif carries through to the bar tape
