Two Montreal based designers sharing the passion for bicycles developed this fabulous retro inspired line of wooden handlebars called “Les Classiques”. Inspired by the legendary cycling races and their heroes, “Les Classiques” revive the elegance of the good old days through the utmost simplicity of wood, aluminum and brass. Of course these beauties are meticulously individually handcrafted as a result of a slow process of cutting, steaming, bending, drying… plus yes, a lot of love and patience.
