A steam punk designer who is fond of leather, Oopsmark introduces a leather bicycle wine carrier for 2011. This leather wine carrier is an excellent street bicycle adornment that secures firmly to the frame so that the two parts do not come apart.

While 2011 Oopsmark Bike Leather Wine Holder can be a great gift for eco-friendly dads who love leather, wine and bike, it is also ideal for any hot blooded men who are fond of tinkering with their well-designed and fashionable machines.

Freshmax Maidstone Shirt

Though it is not a bike-specific garment, the Freshmax Maidstone Shirt can guarantee no signs of sweat during daily rides. Tailored with 100% cotton, this shirt can effectively take the sweat out of commuters. What actively avoids sweat marks is the SmartWeave technology.

A unique feature that this shirt can do that other bike shirts cannot is that heat escapes from the collar. However, although sweat escapes quickly, the garment still needs to be washed as frequent as other bike clothing.

Climate control is enhanced by the SmartWeave technology featuring the inner surface that wicks sweat away from the skin and distribute it across the entire garment. For those who want to wear normal clothing and avoid sweat while riding a bike, the Freshmax Maidstone Shirt is the ideal garment.
