Not sure how well beautifully finished wooden handlebars would hold up against all of the palm sweat summer cycling can invite, but you would look good finding out with a pair of these locked in your stem. Les Classiques handlebars—forged from wood, aluminum, and brass—are the fine idea of Montreal-based design duo F&Y (Frederique and Yannic) who primarily focus on furniture.
“The result of a passion for woodwork and bike rides, each object holds its own singular traits fabricated locally and of a limited edition,” the pair tell us. “The attention to detail in the confection of theses handlebars is a small gift to those who love and appreciate cycling.” A small and splendid gift.
