Anyone know where I can get hold of a diving board in the uk? Nitto or anything else
Hi all, What’s the latest Radavist approved #insta cool small waterproof handle bar bag? I’d like neat and tidy, and would prefer a hideously bright colour... cheers in advance!
Hmm, bit dull... was thinking more like this - https://www.mukama.com/en/topo-designs-bike-bag?cr=4&gclid=CjwKCAiAnfjyBRBxEiwA-EECLA41KUPh6XP0AmPs4c-TAphkmjCv8gmOruEoj343oj-JRA0mP6Yx_hoCP1UQAvD_BwE#/colour-turquoise_red but without the price tag... will probably just buy another Lomo...
Also see Roadrunner and Ornot.
Roadrunner jammer is nice if you wanna fit more stuff.
Not waterproof but water resistant and UK made.
No hideously bright colours, but fits the rest of the bill.
And the Hungry Big Lunch V2.0, which doubles as a bum bag / fanny pack / saddle bag as well and can be custom made. Free international shipping and the Australian dollar is TERRIBLE right now.
Cheers all, plenty to look through there!
I’m after a bar bag to stash di2 batteries, junction boxes and Dynamo cache battery gubbins so as to keep the rest of the bike looking clean so larger volume isn’t needed for this bike...
Came to the same conclusion myself about two years ago. So much effort going into how to carry stuff well on a bike and it turns out the problem was solved by Carradice about a hundred years ago.
Light, no impact on steering, removable and (despite what I’ve had said to me) Classy
Restrap obs #madeinYORKSHIRE
Also has a decent strap system unlike some...
Well, I bought a pizza rack and Restrap rando bag. Pretty pleased with the results. No hurty back. Feels heavy at first but when you're up to speed it's barely noticable, and should be able to carry much more than my previous setup.
Love the saddle.
Might be worth extending that front mudguard somehow (bit of plastic, or chopped other guard). I found the Restrap Rando Bag absorbed a lot of water from the bottom when riding in the rain. The Magnets are so cool though, make on/off such a breeze.
Got this saddle and bar bag from Lidl today, £10 each... they'll be put to proper use soon enough (frame bag is a topeak jobbie)
Actually looks pretty smart!
eTap with ten quid bags tho.
yeah... this hasn't gone unnoticed tbf... but the etap is used daily, the bags will be used 2 maybe 3 times a year
FINE. You're forgiven, babes.
I'm just a little jealous.
Oooh, good intel. Does the water make its way into the bag at all?
I am so pleased with it. I got a swish new bike at the tail end of last year so this one has been somewhat abandoned since then. Feels nice to give it a new lease of life in this way, but I do need to make it a bit more theft-proof.
I've got the small version and definitely found water in the front pocket when I've been riding in heavy rain. I suspect it's water spraying off the front tyre and getting through the seams. I got a block of "Greenland" style wax, rubbed it all over the bag and seams, then melted it into the fabric with a heat gun. Definitely sheds water a lot better now, but I still put my stuff inside a plastic bag just to be safe.
Only when I’d been riding for a long time in the rain. I actually ended up just making a sort of cushion for the base from old waterproof trousers.
Could also just give it a spray with some waterproof coating spray.
Looking for a saddlebag.. for kiddo snacks. to that age now where she wants her own, not for me to pass them from my bag!
probably 2-4 litres,easy open, not ugly... cheap!
