I received my Logan Trunk bag in the mail last night and I was very excited strap it onto my bike for the ride in this morning!  I have been raving to everyone I know about your shop and amazing customer service (who sends hand-written cards? That’s amazing!).

Thanks again. I’m sure I will be placing more orders soon (I already have my eye on a few things). :)

Simple. Practical. Stylish

The Oopsmark Leather U-Lock Holster is a simple, practical and stylish accessory. Gone are the days of pedalling around with a heavy lock rattling around on your handlebars, cross bar, or in your basket. With the adjustment of two screws, it installs in minutes, mounting to your saddle, rear rack, or front basket. Then simply drop in your U-Lock, and ride away with one less thing to worry about! I'll be using mine for years to come! | Vancouver

Awesome functional purse!

This purse is super cute, deceptively large, and extremely functional. The mounting system is simple to use. The fabric is weather resistant and easy to wipe down when it gets dirty. The shoulder strap slides very smoothly. I absolutely love this little bag!

 Me and My Azor:

"I got the Bobbin Pannier this week and have been loving it more and more with every use. The Bobbin Pannier not only makes your bike stylish (as proven in the images below), but it makes you look stylish when you get off your bike. I got my Bobbin Pannier from Le Velo Victoria, a must visit when shopping for unique bicycle clothing and accessories online in Canada. This bag is completely functional, it hooks on to a variety of sized rear carriers with an easy to use mounting system. The bag goes on and comes off with little to no effort. You can also swivel the mounting system so it does not hook onto your clothes or anything else while carrying it. The pannier has a retro look that is really cool. It also has an air of professionalism about it, I almost feel like I am carrying a briefcase, which is probably due to its slender and sturdy build."

In this post I would like to acknowledge that I have had an amazing experience shopping at Le Velo. Online shopping can be a very impersonal transaction, but not with Le Velo. I received a very friendly e-mail notifying me that my item had shipped, that they appreciated my business and that they would love to see pictures. When my pannier arrived there was a handwritten thank you card, a brooch and two business cards waiting for me as well. I have ordered a few things from Le Velo and have received the same level of awesome service every time. I ordered my House of Talents basket from them and I was not sure that it was functional (sturdy) enough for me to use on a day to day basis. When I commute to work I carry a lot of stuff with me, including my super heavy Abus lock. I e-mailed them about possibly returning it, in the end I decided to keep it for recreational use only (for Sunday rides) and they gave me a $35 gift certificate just because and thanked me for keeping the item. I think that great business like that needs to be acknowledged!http://meandmyazor.weebly.com/blog/fashion-friday-the-bobbin-pannier review - Le Velo

 Hello Susan,
You have so many lovely things in you store and I have to admit I am absolutely giddy about locating you right her in my backyard. We are big cyclists at our house but no spandex please, hahaha. I have a beautiful racing green Pashley, affectionately named, Penelope Pashey or Penny for short. 
I would be very interested in seeing the Linus Sand Roll-up Panniers. I currently have some giant Basil canvas and leather ones on Penny, but they are rather large and often get in the way at bike racks and such. I would also be interested in looking at the garters, I have admired them on Etsy but have always wanted to see them in person. I imagine we will become well acquainted in the future, as I think one of those rear crates and rain capes are in my future...

Hi Susan, thanks again for the great bag for my bike.  I have been riding daily, and the bag is almost always on the bike.  I have received many compliments, and have sent people your way.

Hello! I took a few pictures of the crate that I bought from you for my husband. He loves it, it fits on his Soma bike well and he can load it up with various items. Happy riding! (in the snow?)
