I think this is something missing on the forum, so here is a thread for questions, feedback, customer service issues and product news for Restrap.
It's been a busy year for Restrap, we have diversified from mainly producing pedal straps into now making hip pouches, bottle and lock holsters, casual and riding clothing, backpacks and messenger bags.
In the new year we will see the official launch of the long awaited messenger bag as well as the backpack. Nathan had hoped to have these out sooner, but the amount of research and development that has gone into these bags is insane. I've witnessed Nathan work night and day on these products, fine tuning and adjusting designs to develop the ultimate products for us riders.
Tonight the new website goes live, along with awesome new crew neck jumpers, beanies and packages where you can combine the most popular Restrap products into a bargain purchase.
I've been riding Restraps for over a year now, and have nothing but good words to say for the straps and their maker. I believe in supporting home grown UK businesses and I believe that Restrap deserves it.
To celebrate the launch of the new site and new products, Nathan is running an exclusive raffle. Up until the 21st of December, with every £10 spent through www.restrap.co.uk you will receive a ticket.
At the end of the raffle, 4 winners will be drawn. 3 will win a limited edition Restrap jumper, and one lucky winner will win a Restrap ltd jumper, a Ted James Design T-shirt, and a one off, custom fabricated Ted James stem, built entirely to the winners spec.
I'm opening this thread not only to raise awareness of Restrap, but also to provide to the forum somewhere to discuss the products, and also field any questions or feedback.
Nathan is proud to be a small UK businessman, and he wants to develop to cater for his prime market, which is you guys. So any ideas or feedback on product design, how it could be improved, or what you would like to see from Restrap, please let us know.
The backpack and messenger bag will be available on pre-order within the next couple of weeks, please check back for further product development and Restrap news.
In the coming months expect to see technical clothing, more riding products and some exclusive and extremely limited frames.
Big thanks to Super Ted at www.TedJamesDesign.com for putting up the stem for the winner of the raffle, if you haven't already checked him out, Ted is one of the most incredible and versatile British frame builders. Building everything from titanium 29ers and beautiful Columbus Max track frames to the some of the toughest and most sought after trick frames going.

make a belt
is the site down? crew looks good
Definitely ordering a whole bunch of yo stuff in the new year.
Nathan is the man.
A belt is in the pipeline, getting the bags finished and in production is a priority at the moment. The site is literally having the finishing touches put on it as we speak and should be live any minute.
Daaamn I like the look of that backpack!
Restrap stuff really is the nuts. I've been so happy with everything I've bought. It's all fantastic quality and it's everything made to such a high level of perfection.
Great company :)
Cheers Dom, you've seen what it's all about for Restrap. Riding bikes, having fun and building great products (:
Yeah the bag looks sweet!
That was an earlier prototype of the backpack, it's come along a bit since then...
New tooling due in tomorrow then both bags should be up for pre-order within the next couple of weeks, Nate is just getting everything perfect, I was in the workshop today and I gotta say, the messenger bag looks amazing.
spam thread deserves a bump
I really want to get the backpack. I've got a messenger bag but it's not always practical to carry around with me when I'm not on the bike.
I'm so tempted by the backpack, the bag i'm currently using (Timberland, courtesy of T K Maxx) is falling apart.
Any idea what prices will be?
site looks good. Picked up the crew neck and the bibs and jersey were too good a deal to pass up. £60 for a full kit!
Everything looks dope.
bag looks like a rip of
Yeah but you could say that both look like:
I'm not sure just how different black rolltop messenger bags can look from one another (nor why they should).
It'll be all about the finer details.
Yep, wait till you see shots of the finished product before passing judgement.... From what I've seen the Restrap bag is going to offer up some interesting and unique features... A concealed laptop pocket, multiple closure systems, an ingenious strap system enabling you to carry just about anything securely... I'll be back with more info soon.
Price on the messenger is not yet confirmed but aiming for sub £150.
I want to know more about the backpack, especially if it has those features too. I'm so eager to replace my Mission Workshop.
dom pm me when/if you sell your MW as im after a larger bag for travelling
I tried toe clips and got my foot stuck and fell over in front of a bus full of school children. Then tried clipless pedals and shoes but they make you walk like your piles have blown out. I now have the diagonal restraps which are BRILLIANT. i can even wear them with steel cap boots. ( might have a problem wearing flippers).
Made In Yorkshire bib shorts are my faves.
Very interested in a backpack.
When will they be starting a hipster cx/track team?
how can you have a conceal laptop pocket? am fairly certain the weight and shape of the computer would be a giveaway that there is something in an ostensibly cloth bag.
