I make removable bicycle seat covers. The tops are all painted and coated in a UV and water-proof sealant, and the sides are lycra with a drawstring closure. They hold up perfectly for regular use are are a cool way to customize your wheels.


Lately all my bike seat covers have had a tropical feel to them, and I keep thinking about fruit as I mix my colors. Could this be the manifestations of a daiquiri deficiency?


The swallows are always classic, and Im really enjoying painting the calaveras. Theres a great opportunity for colors and designs, and the shape is perfect for a bike seat.

I've got more photos and info on my website!

What a really neat idea. I have a plain black bicycle seat that gets really hot if you lock it up out in the sun. I may have to experiment as I have a narrower seat on my road bike.

The big picture may be amazing but it's the little details that inspire.
