They’re strong and sensible, lightweight and durable, handmade in Southeast Portland like a lot of our merchandise, and most of all darn good-looking: They’re Sykes fenders ($150/pair) and bottle cages ($65 each) made in a range of woods and bamboos.
Sykes makes fenders to fit most wheel sizes, with our in-stock offerings ranging from 20″ (boxbike/ShuttleBug front wheel, recumbent bikes, folding bikes) to 26″ (mountain bikes, most hybrids, most longtail cargobikes) to 700c (road, cyclocross, touring bikes) in a variety of widths. Even fenders for 24″ wheels and 29ers are available by special order.
As for the bottle cages: depending on the type of wood, they’re about as light as carbon-fiber bottle holders. Yes, really. And so much prettier.
Now what? Well, now we do a Flickr dump of everything we’ve discussed so far. You can do your part by mousing over the images to read the different types of wood. You can help by imagining how each one would look on each of your bikes. And how good you would look riding on that bike.
