How to Install Your Bicycle Wine Rack
I hope you love the wine rack. Follow these simple steps to install your wine rack on your bike:
- Fit: The strap is designed to be snug so that when it stretches, it will be the right size and not too loose. The first couple times you put a wine bottle in it it will feel a little snug and the first couple of times you connect and disconnect it from the metal post it will feel a little snug.
- Leather: Don’t be afraid to rub down the rack with olive oil once a year to keep the leather slightly moist. The material is a vegetable tanned leather that will change in colour and feel depending on how often you use it. It will darken with sunlight significantly.
- Clamp: The clamping system is meant to be snug enough to keep the leather from moving around. It’s not invisible so don’t tighten the clamp harder than you need to.
- Recycled: If you purchased your rack between April 28th – middle of May 2011, then congratulations, your brass knobs are recycled! I found them in a scrap recycler here in Montreal. Thanks for supporting a new way of making things.
