The good people at Craft Cadence contacted me and wanted me to review one of their products. They sent me their bar bag for review, and I must say it’s something I didn’t know I needed. Here are some images:
Size: Approximately 10 x 8 x 3”
Weight: about 260 grams
What’s included: bag, 2 straps for attaching to bars, Velcro strap you can wrap around cables, shoulder strap.
Quickly installs with the two straps that work sorta like a belt buckle. I tried it on several bikes including my Raleigh Sports, Hybrid bike, Surly drop bar bike, and Felt Z75 disc. Fits fine on all of them. Comes with a shoulder strap so you can easily take it off the bike and bring with you.
Easy access to inside the bag without getting off your bike, just stop and reach inside
Thick, quality tarpaulin material
Internal mesh pocket for small items
Easy to install
Fits on all my bikes
Big, 3-3.5 liter capacity
Shoulder carry strap
Bright yellow for safety, also comes in black
Place to mount headlight
Not going to be aero
Fits lots of bikes
I like this bag and think it’s perfect for your cruiser bikes where you are not worried about aero dynamics. I plan to use it mostly with my Raleigh Sports. I think it is kinda like a modern basket. I’m confident it will keep everything nice and dry inside.
I’m gonna give this bag a 5 out of 5 stars. You can get yours on the Craft Cadence website:
