Consider this a bookend to our bike style primer on Monday, addressing the bermuda triangle of stylish cycling: catching your pants in a bike chain. Selectism tipped us off to a leather strap from Brooks that lets you keep the endangered pant leg hiked up for as long as you keep it snapped. If you play your cards right, the strap might even match your saddle. But as always, the best defense is a tight cuff.
