Nope, just something to strap my lunchbox on :)
But I actually dug out my old Carradice Handlebar Bag and it fits perfect. I've removed the Klickfix stuff and made a bungee cord attachment so it fits a rack like so.
Yeah, multi-use win!
Made this for my sis in law. Got some black VO mudguards for it come fall
Dialed as always, excellent.
not a huge fan of the paint job but great bike overall 👍
I can't bear looking at them champagne marins since mine got stealed but this is a banger ! great job
Saw this casually parked outside the bank, unlocked.
I think this fits the topic line of this thread.
@enNiclas; Great looking bike.
What is it?
I was going to say a cross check but it seems to have an extended head tube
My exact thoughts.
thats something @spotter would post
Not a Surly, unless it's been modified, extra bottle cage mounts, longer headtube, and the rear brake cable runs under the toptube, not above as on a CC, oh and the CC fork only has mudguard mounts, not rack mounts on the dropouts.
Nice lookin bike nonetheless.
The power coated Shimano square taper cranks make me think it's that German customer builder who's name currently escapes me.
That may be the first rando-ish bike I've seen with a 1x that looks good to me.
Close but the head tube?
It has a different fork and drop outs as well.
There is a quite loud sticker on the seat tube, hard to see if it´s just a random one or from the frame brand.
I was unfortunately in a rush and didn't have time to wait for the owner.
Mystery blue bike looks welded?
Fern still is brazed only I think.
Is it a Temple?
Not kept myself up to speed here so sorry if this is a repost - all the bags… curious to know what the benefit of a saddle mounted bag over using the top of the rear rack is 🤷♂️
Being able to strap a tent/dry bag/firewood etc. on the rear rack when on tour, and still having saddle bag if you remove the rack from time to time is my guess
