Truth be told, cycling doesn’t lend itself to letting you bring a lot of stuff with you without risiking looking like you are aiming traveling the globe. Even smaller things like a phone and a wallet have a hard time staying put unless they’re enclosed in some zippered pocket of an attachable bag that only looks good on the bike.
Not anylonger! I stumbled over a solution that suits your crave for taste and is really useful for your daily commute and city trips.
Combining style and convenience, the Ortlieb Barista Handlebar Bag lets you finally keep your essentials in a place that goes where you go. On your bike, it sits at the front of the handlebars and is large enough to act as a full satchel, with more than enough room for your keys, phone and wallet. Entirely waterproof, your items are safe within. The top is closed with a magnetic flap, making it the perfect storage bag for photographers that enjoy capturing moments on the go. It can also be locked to the bike itself should you want to leave it outside.
However, why would you want to leave anything so stylish outside? Complete with contrasting leather accents, the inside of the bag is even more detailed, featuring an internal organizer with a key snap hook, two pockets and a pen slot. In short, it is the perfect addition to any urban bike, giving you the practicality of bike storage while still acting as a functional, fashionable accessory.
Though it fits all handlebars up to 31.8mm in diameter as well as conical handlebars, it should not be used with carbon handle bars. 🙂
