Felt and Leather Bicycle Bags - Flux Productions
Ryan Greer of Flux Productions crafts all his bags in his Fort Greene studio, hand-cutting each piece of leather, and often pairing it with felt or cork. Designed with the weekend rider in mind, these totes attach to the bike frame with leather belt straps: the smaller saddle bag is ideal for carrying a phone and keys to brunch in Cobble Hill, or bring the larger bag for a sweater and an iPad to Prospect Park.
$160- $180. FluxProductions.net
Metropolitan Bike - Affinity Cycles
In the five years since Affinity Cycles opened in Williamsburg, owner Jason Gallacher’s bike frames have been on a steady climb, now selling out on both coasts almost as quickly as they are produced. Affinity’s single-speed Metropolitan was just featured as the ride of choice for Joseph Gordon-Levitt in bike messenger-action flick Premium Rush—it’s available in pure white and bowling ball blue.
As a cyclist, the most important element is safety, especially here in Brooklyn where cars fill the roads at all hours. Stay safe in Nutcase’s “Super Solid” helmets—they are simple and well-designed, and can withstand a tough beating. How could you go wrong with a company whose motto is, “We love your brain”?
Suli Bicycle Seat covers – Eleanor’s NYC
The whole idea behind Eleanor’s is fashionable but functional bike accessories. Owner Alison Lucien was looking for a way to spruce up her vintage Schwinn while commuting to work by bike every day, so she opened her own shop. These Suli covers are kitschy and also waterproof, saving your bike seat (and your backside) from the elements.
