Documentary: Carson Leh

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 handlebar 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.

Filmer Brian Chace visited his Austin based workshop this winter to speak with him about his work and inspiration. This short film shows the process of one of his custom made BMX seats. Each BMX seat is guaranteed for life against tears.

You can find Carson at www.lehseats.com or on Instagram at @lehseats.

Shoutout to Brian and Carson for letting us premier this.

Alden Seats

Carson Leh has been making custom leather seats for the past year or so and has been getting a great response since we first posted about them over a year ago. He has recently setup a Kickstarter page to help raise funds to step up his production and do a full run of seats that he will be able to sell at a lower cost! Check out his Kickstarter page here and make sure to donate! Even $1 can really help out!

Photogallery: Refresh

We are excited to show a nice selection of photos from Carson Leh and Sean Sweeney that were taken during the filming of Brian Chace’s new video Refresh. ¬†Carson and Sean are both good friends with Brian and everyone in the video. With so many spots in the North West and so many great riders in the video, it wasn’t hard for them to capture some amazing shots and document the tricks that went down during the filming. Refresh will premier this week at a bunch of spots in the North West (click for the details)¬†and will be available on DVD soon!
