so, title aside 😉 haha the Bianchi Volpe got some new leather goodies from a guy in Portland, OR named Geoff who runs WalnutStudiolo, you can find them here on Etsy.

what i got was a modified version of their “Bike Portage Strap”, i had it made longer on the top tube, and i also had them make up a chainstay protector while Geoff was at it.

i highly recommend them both as they are very well made and handsome additions to any bike.
