• Just noticed this thing exists. Seems like a minimalist and handy bit of kit to put a bit of space between bar bags and head tube/cables.

    Can the hive mind come up with any reason that this wouldn't be a decent addition to a touring set up?

    Because if the stiff-backed harness was far enough away from the bars/cables you wouldn't need it?

    It wouldn't work on my Tripster anyway because the stem is on the headset so there's no room for that weird clamp mount. Something coming off the stem might be a better idea?

  • I like it, and certainly more pleasing then the thorn T-bar/accessory bar that does a similar job, although at significantly less cost.

    @hippy I’ve had success using one of those Chinese/eBay special space mounts designed for lights/gos etc, but attached either under at 90degrees to push a bag away (and provide a place to attach a strap) or on top to lift the bag up.

  • I have one, the OG made by Hesson Labs. It does a pretty good job but it doesn't fit my slammed lifestyle anymore. I'm not sure I'll ever use it again so if you happen to have a 90mm stem you'd be welcome to it. You could also have the Outer Shell handlebar bag knockoff I made for it, I can't be seen with it now I'm a(n aspiring) professional bag maker.
