Medium Rando Bag

Medium Rando Bag

$ 189.00

Less boxy, more contoured to fit your rack snugly. We kept all the features of traditional front bags, but pared down the non-essentials...creating a leaner, meaner bag. Leather is used sparingly to keep weight down, but we didn't scrimp where reinforcement is needed.

Our Medium Rando mounts securely to the rack; you have the option of going "decaleur-less" when conditions are less demanding. We achieved a tight bag/rack interface by:

  1. slanting the back of bag to match the rack tombstone angle.
  2. heavy duty velcro straps that cinch tightly around rack rails.
  3. feeding bottom straps through stiff leather sleeves.
  4. a wraparound stiffener—held under tension—that applies pressure against rack.

(If you need a little more stability, attach some cords to the handlebars. Of course, a decaleur is advised when the going gets rough.) 

This bag is sized to fit the Nitto M-12 rack, Nitto Mark’s rack, Velo Orange 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.

Please note: In the process of improving our products, we occasionally make running changes. Actual item may slightly vary from what is shown in the photos.
