pay homage to the French handlebar bag,
incorporating some time-saving features for the long distance cyclist.
Our Boxy Rando Bag is "medium-sized"; perfect for smaller
frames or for those riders who don't plan on bringing the kitchen
This bag is sized to fit the Nitto M-12 rack (as shown) and other *similarly sized* Randonneur style front racks. Non-standard sized mini racks and other rack styles will NOT mount securely. Please contact me with any fit questions before purchase.
A note on
It goes without
saying that the addition of a decaleur
will provide the most wobble-free mount--it's essential if you're riding rough roads or carrying a heavy load. But running a couple of
cords to the handlebars (along with our multi-layered stiffener) can help stabilize the bag in less stressful conditions. You might want to test it with the cords
first. You can always install a decaleur if it's not stable enough
for your needs.
- Rev 5-24-13: Stabilizing cord locks upgraded to Fastex brand--strongest on the market. Plastic clips no longer included. (photos not updated) See here for a non-slip attachment method.
