Portland based leather crafters Tanner Goods have officially branched out into cycling. I say “officially” because if you recall they collaborated on a set of bags with Cielo Cycles back in 2013. (Also fun to note that Cielo/Chris King’s former marketing guy recently started working at Tanner Goods.)
This is great news. Not only are both of these companies based locally, but like Cielo (a division of Chris King Precision Components), all Tanner Goods products are made “from the ground up” right here in Portland.
See the new collection at TannerGoods.com and learn more in the official press release below…
New Cycling Collection
On any given day in our workshop, the bike rack holds a range of different rides, from classic road bikes to urban single speeds to unholy mash-ups that defy easy categorization. Riding bikes is something we love, whether it’s pedaling in to work each morning or escaping on the weekend to chase a little sun. So it’s no surprise we’ve spent some time developing a collection of bags that fit into the two-wheeled parts of our lives and reflect our commitment to creating pieces that perform day in and day out, and gain character and personality over time.
Our updated Cycling Collection uses various treatments of our familiar canvas cloth in combination with brass hardware and hand-stitched vegetable-tanned Cambara English bridle leather. They are designed to work on a range of bikes, and across various styles or riding, from daily commutes to weekend day rides to overnight explorations. Though they function well as a complete family, they can easily be mixed and matched according to your riding style and needs.
