It seems taboo to admit to there being a middle ground between amateur and professional, between the rider pedaling for enjoyment, and the rider who lives by 'the rules'. Are we meant to solely emulate the pros each time we don lycra? - perhaps not all the time... However, that doesn’t mean reserving oneself to a Dutch bike and only going as far as the shops. The Bar Bag from Ornot sums up a very modern, and frankly quite refreshing approach to riding - do a long, maybe fast, ride, yes, but take lunch, a good range of spares (both parts and kit) and arrive home feeling like you accomplished a great day out, not collapsed over the handlebars.
After testing various incarnations of the Bar Bag, Ornot settled on a design that can be strapped to nearly any handlebar. There is plenty of room on the inside for kit and cameras plus large accessory pockets on each side for close to hand items. An intelligent elastic fastening over one of the pockets means your phone, map or brevet card doesn't rattle free. Made in the US from heavy duty, custom printed canvas, the Bar Bag has a rugged structure and will stand up to the rigors of everyday commutes and long rides.
