Yanco Pads Mini

The Yanco Pads Mini is basically a stubbly little top tube protector. Designed for locking your bike without scratching the frame, and for keeping the handlebar from turning into the top tube. Check it out on my Raleigh Rush Hour Flatbar.

Yanco’s craftsmanship is top notch, and their pads are made in the USA. The Mini retails for $16. Visit www.yancopads.com for more info, or order online from www.streethobby.com.

    What grips are those?

    The grips look like the Speed Metal Grips by Portland Design Works

    Thanks! After I posted, I saw the link for the Raleigh and read up on the Speed Metals. I wish my Ergons (mtb) had the same styling cues as these grips.
