this new bike building is getting out of hand - now i've decided i must have green toe straps to match (as close as can get) the 'british racing' green brooks b17... might try dying some tan ones if all else fails...

anybody have ideas? laminated pref; straight leather possible... no nylon, of course!

may want to post this in the fixed/single speed forum. Fixed bikes usually use straps.

I don't recall ever seeing British racing green straps,
but since Brooks made straps as well as saddles maybe
they produced them?
I'd say contact Bill Laine at Wallingford but he's left N.Orleans
due to Hurricane.

Home brew time, locate some natural colored units, and dye them green, aniline (sp) dye will work so will shoe dye (not polish), be sure to test, the secret is to fix it after, there was a spray I bought at a shoe repair shop that was used as a sealer, to help renew the plated finish on handbags and such

Never saw green back in the day, but never saw a green brooks either, do have a green Campagnolo saddle sitting on my lime green Raleigh International, Styling over comfort.

aha, experience speaks! probably not difficult to do the dying; and still, green'll be as comfy as red or yellow!

... now if only suntour had made the 'green line' of derailleurs...
