On Monday we showed you a wooden wallet by an Idaho-based couple. Today we we've got another not-typically-made-from-wood item by another design duo, this one out of Canada: F&Y's bicycle handlebars.
Frederique and Yannic are Montreal-based designer-woodworkers currently working on a line of furniture. But while that's on the boil, the pair have released the Les Classiques wooden handlebars line, borne of their love of cycling.
Inspired by legendary cycling races and their heros, "Les Classiques" revive the elegance and panache that once reigned our roads. We have paired various hardwood species to these famous one-day circuits to create an authentic line. Developed with passion, "Les Classiques" give your ride a timeless look.
The choice of species, steaming, bending, drying, and the patience... The meticulous work behind the shapes hands will grasp. The utmost simplicity of wood, aluminum, and brass give "Les Classiques" their strength and signature. Individually handcrafted, each handlebar embodies a traditional skill-set.
