Leather Top Tube Protector
These sewn-on top tube protectors will help protect your frame from damage. They are made from very durable cowhide leather than has been treated by the process of oiltanning. It's perfect for being exposed to the elements and urban environments.
Thick waxed thread and special blunt-point harness maker's needles are included. Comprehensive illustrated instructions are also included.
The cover is long enough (55cm) to fit almost any length tube, but is easily cut down with sharp scissors. There are two widths and colors available in the dropdown product selection. The 25.4mm size fits most classic steel bikes (with 25.4.mm diameter tubes); The 28.6mm size is for bikes with modern steel tubing.
We also stock matching elk hide toe clip covers, handlebar covers, and chainstay protector.
Leather is a natural and irregular material, so colors may vary slightly from those shown in photos.
