Made from genuine deer antler and metal, this awesome handlebar was hand crafted by Taylor Simpson over in Brooklyn New York.
These handlebars are probably the raddest bespoke cycle gear you can get your hands on: genuine deer antlers fused with recycled metal to create a completely custom and completely awesome riding experience. As the pointy horns equally custom box proclaims, you’re sure to “leave your mark.”
The spark of inspiration for these handlebars came to him while visiting the World’s Longest Yard Sale on New Yorks Route 127 in 2010. He found some antlers sold by a man from Kentucky, and seeing the handlebar like form, he snatched them up. The beautiful packaging design you see here, dubbed Moniker, was part of a Package Design assignment for his Fall 2012 Senior Project class with Michael Gerbino at Pratt Institute.
“I originally came up with the concept of Moniker Cycle Horns while participating in the World’s Longest Yard Sale on Route 127 in 2010, an event I look forward to do every year. While traveling the sale I found a pair of genuine deer antlers a local man was selling somewhere in Kentucky. As a cyclist I thought it would be clever to create bicycle handlebars made of animal horns and antlers.” Taylor Simpson
