This is what your frame handle looks like when it arrives in the mail, with the straps tucked in.
Begin by rotating the buckle out and unbuckling one strap.
Wrap the strap around your seat tube or bottom tube (either one). You may need to put it below your water bottle cage if you have one and above your derailleur for a good fit.
Be sure to thread the belt between your bike frame and brake cable - don't sandwich the brake cable down with the belt.
Rotate the belt through the handle loop to tuck the buckle rivet inside the strap. This will protect your bike's finish so there is no metal touching metal.
Pull the belt tight and buckle the tine into the tightest hole you can for a snug fit.
Tuck the tail of the belt strap through the handle loop. You're all done on the first side!
Do the same on the other side, and you're all done! I recommend installing it above the derailleur instead of beneath it to prevent the derailleur from shifting.
Now you can pick your bike with ease and carry it off into the sunset! Photo credit Erin Berzel erinberzel.com Frame handle available for sale at walnutstudiolo.com
