Medium Rando Bag
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:
- slanting the back of bag to match the rack tombstone angle.
- heavy duty velcro straps that cinch tightly around rack rails.
- feeding bottom straps through stiff leather sleeves.
- 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.
