Those bike bags (for carrying stuff on a bike, not carrying bikes in)
I remember either a thread or article (one by Chipps?) about an american firm / bloke who made quite cool looking bike bags. Particularly a bag that worked off the seatpost (with a fabric wrap around it) and didn’t need a rack.
Struggling to find the thread / site / link. Can anyone help?

Flatfish and Tiger.. a previous thread on this had a guy called Buggybags(or similar).. making bags for Kite Buggys – I think this business were discussed after everyone seemed to draw a blank on getting anyone in the bike industry interested in developing a niche market.. Maybe I missed a thread on this somewhere if there is an alternative source in the UK.
I bit the bullet and waited for Eric to deliver from Alaska but would have been interested and I’d like a custom frame bag at some point rather than just Erics Tangle Bag (off the peg “top half frame bag”!

I got in touch with Jon from a buggybags a about a week ago and he has already made me this as a prototype “tanglebag” (to use the revelate name) and will have no problem putting custom framebags together either – just contact him and give him your measurements ;-). he’s a really nice bloke and works with 1000 denier cordura which is seriously tough and very water repellent (completely waterproof if you nikwax it or apply another dwr) although not really needed as if you’ve ever used 1000d cordura, you’ll know that it’s wicked stuff (many of the seriously tough old rucksacks that didn’t need waterproof covers they were so good only used 400d). he can be contacted at email@example.com
right, can’t add pic as keeps asking for url when pic is in my “pictures” – i should spend less time on my bike and learn to use a computer – well it looks great and feels very tough but i guess you just have to trust me on that one 😉Posted 7 years ago
