When riding a bike there are three main contact points between your body and the machine: hands, feet and posterior - and each deserve individual attention. 

Mick Peel, of Busyman Bicycles, is a bespoke leather bicycle upholsterer who looks after the most crucial cycling touchpoints.

After completing an BA and MA in fashion design, and lecturing at Melbourne's RMIT University for almost 20 years, Mick now combines his knowledge with a passion for bespoke leatherwork by producing exceptionally detailed handlebar tape and toe straps. He can also reupholster your favorite saddle with custom debossing, stitching and perforations.
