The original bicycle frame handle launched by Walnut Studiolo on Kickstarter. The frame handle (a.k.a. “The Little Lifter”!) is a comfortable, stylish, sturdy, and easy-to-use leather handle for carrying your bicycle, whether it's up the stairs, across the tracks, or onto the metro.
Designed for commuters, this minimalist handle makes carrying your bike actually feel easier and lighter by lowering the center of gravity and using your normal muscle groups for lifting and holding your bicycle, same as lifting a grocery bag or carrying a briefcase.
Most riders pick up their bike by the top tube, which requires you to bend your elbow at an uncomfortable angle. This causes strain on your elbow and shoulder and makes carrying your bike any distance feel awkward.
Because it’s easier to lift a bike with the Frame Handle, you’re more in control when walking up stairs or in a crowded setting.
The Frame Handle has two adjustable buckles. One that wraps around the down-tube and one around the seat-tube. It can be mounted above the derailleur and below most water bottle cages.
The leather used is USA-tanned leather from American steers in St. Louis, Missouri with hardware sourced from an Ohio leather company.
