Damn this is rad. If you liked the look of Carson Leh’s custom leather seats we posted last week, you should make sure you check out this rad promo video he just released giving you an in depth look at what he does.

Carson Leh has been making custom leather bicycle seats and cycling accessories for 4 years. He started in 2010 recovering torn BMX saddles and in 2013 he founded Leh Seats. He not only manufactures leather bike saddles and handle bar tape, but has recently branched out with new leather goods such as Macbook cases. He produces small production run leather goods for contract in the USA.
