We’ve had this bag for a few weeks now and I’m really impressed with the quality and fit. Read on to learn more about this bar bag from Craft Cadence.

This high-quality bike bag from Craft Cadence uses a clever “ski style strap” that reliably and easily attaches the bag to the bike’s handlebars. This strap made from a relatively stretchy rubber has excellent grip and prevents the bag from getting excess wobble even when riding over rough terrain.

The bag is priced at £39.99 here in UK. It’s currently on sale at £29.99 which is a steal as this is an excellent product.

I think this bag is aimed more at commuting and general riding but I have been using it for muddy gravel rides and it’s certainly held up to the abuse, kept my items dry and there is no rub on my bars or frame.

The rubber mounting straps aren’t going to appeal to everyone but I’m yet to find a big that I can’t mount this bag to. Once they are secured you can forget about them. I would take these over the velcro straps that so many other bike bags seem to come with.

A great product for those looking for extra storage space when commuting, adventuring, gravel, road cycling or just out for a general ride.
