Bottle Belts [Etsy]

Featured on TechCrunch, these bottle belts secure just about anything cylindrical- or bottle-shaped to your bike's top tube (how about a wine bottle? bundle of kindling? rolled up beach blanket?).

These belts were designed to securely fold around the top tube of your bike frame and cinch on a variety of bottles you'd like to carry.

The belt folds over the top tube and through itself with origami-like grace and ensures a tight fit supported by the weight of the bottle. It is a snug fit on both 1" and 1 1/8" tubing. Buckles hold the bottle tight in place.

Unfolded, these straps can be used to fasten objects to your racks.

The top-quality bridle leather strap is adjustable to hold variably sized bottles. Holds as large as a 40oz Kleen Kanteen (11" circumference) down to a 22oz beer size (9" circumference). Perfect for wine bottles (extra-curvy champagne bottles not recommended).

I designed these and my other leather bicycle accessories to be functional, durable, and beautiful for your bicycle. I test out all my products on my own bike commutes for several weeks prior to listing.

An informal poll on our Facebook page came up with a lot of great names for this product: Flagon Wagon Cummberbunds, the Grapes of Strap, Velo Vino, Boozer Cruiser, Vin de Velo, Hermetage Harness, Vino A-Go-Go, Cork Carrier, Wine Spine, Terroir Tighteners.

This listing is for one pair of belts -- please note that it takes both belts to secure the bottle to your bike.

Available in "honey"/cognac, oxblood, brown, and black. Please indicate in the "message to seller" box during checkout if you have a preference.
