The Uninvented : the no-shit bike car bag
you drive somewhere, ride, get filthy, its cold, there’s no bike wash and you want to keep your car clean:
ok so I want one of these:
2x wheel bags, square and double seamed on the bottom, rear upright then stitched halfway up the front upright. waterproof and tear resistant fabric, the unstitched parts to be sealed by velcro.
thats what I’d stick my muddy wheels in. then:
a long bag, two triangles at the rear connecting to one long triangle and a vertical oblong for the forks. All double stitched up and along the base, the top of the bag again joined up with velcro, a separate bag to put the saddle and seat post in.
I could then just pull the wheels off the bike, chuck it all in a bag, stow it in the car, drive home, wash bike later.
why does this product not exist? (you need to be able to turn it inside out and hose it down, thick padding is not required, this is a car bag not a flight case!
someone must be able to knock these up? I’d buy a couple!!Posted 9 years ago
close Gozy, but I’d like one that was bags that I could carry indoors if I really couldn’t be arsed to clean it or it was too late or cold etc then I could trip over it in the morning and carry it back outside and reassemble and hose down the bike & bag the next day after workPosted 9 years agoRolloMember
Get a Thule Roof Rack. Expensive but possibly the best bike related thing I have bought – 2 seconds to chuck em on the roof wheels and all, and one clean car.
Problem is you then end up taking three peole in one car and still have a muddy bike in the back. But then my car hs 110000 miles on the clock and I beleive in tough love for cars!Posted 9 years agoJengaMember
You can get the wheel bags on their own. I have two, and they are really very good, but I just put the frame in the back of the car. Surprisingly it doesn’t make a lot of muck. I use the wheel bags to stop everything banging about against each other. They also make good mats to stand on at the end of a ride!!!Posted 9 years ago
