Reclaimed Leather Mountain Bike Grips

Here comes the sun, and for those of you with an interest in cycling I have just posted an Instructable about mountain bike grips (nice real leather ones too!).

Using some punches (made from old bike parts), it is possible to make nice grips, that will not get all slippery while you sweat.  Which is a nice.  They also seem a lot kinder to the hands, not leaving ingrained blackness in blisters.

Let the Summer reign!  Check out the full Instructable here.
