Bicycle Wine Rack Installation

September 01, 2011

Just incase you need some inspiration, here's how you can assemble your bicycle wine rack. Don't forget to have a bottle of wine handy.

If you've bought a bicycle wine rack, we'd love to see it in action. Tag us on Instagram


Bicycle wine rack Installation instructions

  1. Fit: The strap is designed to be snug so that when it stretches, it will be the right size and not too loose. The first couple of times you use it, it will feel a little snug and the first few you connect and disconnect it from the metal post it will feel a little snug.
  2. Leather: Don’t be afraid to rub down the rack with olive oil once a year to keep the leather slightly moist. The material is a vegetable tanned leather that will change in colour and feel depending on how often you use it. It will darken with sunlight significantly.
  3. Clamp: Choose the plastic clamp that best fits the frame of your bike; make sure to use the same size for both pieces. The clamping system is meant to be snug enough to keep the leather from moving around. It’s not invincible so don’t tighten the clamp harder than you need to.
  4. Recycled: If you purchased your rack between April 28th – mid-May 2011, then congratulations, your brass knobs are recycled! I found them in a scrap recycler here in Montreal. Thanks for supporting a new way of making things.
