I purchased two of the large handlebar bags to go on a pair of Salsa Marrakesh touring bikes. I grappled with whether to buy the small or large, but I am so glad we went for the large. We have ample room to store snacks, wallets, raincoats, and just about anything we would need for a "short" 50-mile ride. The quality is great, and so far they have been 100% waterproof. I am planning to buy an extra pair of brackets so that we can use them on our road bikes.
this is a great bag for the bar...IF you dont mind it sitting as high as it does above the bag...and i do mind. traditional bags sit level and put the load lower. i could engineer the same bracket to hold the bag lower...its not complicated.
Glowing endorsement by a bike shop I visited in GermanyBy
In September 2012, I visited a major bike shop in Mainz, Germany, to get some repairs done. The staff were very helpful to a touring cyclist. When I took of my Arkel small HB bag, the woman who booked in my bike marvelled at the mount: "That's beautiful," she said, "and strong. We don't have anything like that here." A German endorsing engineering from elsewhere -- rare praise indeed!
Nothing compares to itBy
I have seen and tryed all of the other products, famous and "home made" brands: no way, each one had a problem. This is simply perfect. Just try and you will say the same
