Wide Rando Bag - NEW

Wide Rando Bag - NEW

$ 149.00

If the British were into front rack bags, they might have created something like this. We took the traditional saddlebag and reconfigured to fit on a rando rack. The result is a duffel bag shape with a big expandable opening and off-the-bike “carryability”. This bag works well for bulky cargo such as a change of clothes, jacket and lunch. Since it’s a front transverse bag, I wouldn’t recommend over-loading it with extra-heavy items. Also, wider drop bars are needed for proper side clearance (see photos).

Our Wide Rando mounts securely to the rack without adding a decaleur...avoiding complexity, expense and weight. 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.

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.
