And, some garage sale stuff down lower.
Jones bar bag. Now permanently on my commuter bike. Works great, easy to make.
Get it now for $65 shipped. I can also make these for other brand bars with a closed area in it. Just ask. Same price unless its really weird or highly custom.
New mount option for the Everything Bags. There's an aluminum bit with three threaded holes that the bag bolts too, then the aluminum hose clamps onto the bike - on the fork, downtube, or anywhere else! I've been riding the first one on my commuter bike fork for a couple months and it hasn't budged.
Advantages over the p clamps are the bag is mounted on center, and the hose clamps fit from 61/64" to 1-3/4"so should cover almost every size fork leg and downtube out there. If not - get a different set of hose clamps! So you can change forks, or move the bags to a different bike and not have to buy new p clamps. Easy!
Possible disadvantages are - it *might* scratch your frame, or over torquing could crush a carbon tube (this is the same with p clamps though) - so put a few wraps of tape on the fork first.
The hose clamps have little tails so you have to be sure they're not anywhere near the wheel and no where they could cut you. Or trim the tail off.
Pricing is still $10 per bag, same as p clamps.
The first test ride was up and down The Ribbon in Grand Junction. For those unfamiliar with GJ trails, this trail is steep desert singletrack with a lot of rocks. The freeride guys get shuttled to the top...
The Everything Bag was unnoticeable down there - until it was time for some water. Much lower profile than having a bag on the fork.
It didn't move or slip the entire time and gave more room in the frame bag for a fleece, hat, gloves, and an apple plus tool kit, tubes, and pump.
And a few flashback pictures to November 2009.
A long, cold, dark, snowy ride/hike up a 4x4 road. I had a crock pot going and looked forward to it the entire time.
And now for the garage sale goodies.Prices include shipping to the 48 states (other locations get charged shipping) and are "Or Best Offer."
Trades work too, not sure what I need though so you'll have to make a trade offer.
Salsa Enabler fork
Lightly used, great condition. Comes with a trimmed steerer tube (I can measure if you're interested), star nut, and reflective tape on it.
$60 including shipping
Bar bag - almost like the "production" model now, but lighter weight fabric and #5 water resistant zipper. A new bar bag is $75, this goes for $50 shipped.
Partial frame bag for my old singlespeed.
Muddy bike shown but not included.
And now for the weirder stuff.
This is a custom/prototype bag for aero bars....
You could try it on aero bars or a rear rack or who knows what.... lunch box for the work truck?
Dual zip top
Padded internal dividers
Its 0.001% more aerodynamic than a bar bag...
Lots of straps on the bottom.
Two bar bag pouches without the harness - old style straps (won't fit a current style harness) but maybe you can figure out what to do with it - get both and buckle them around your trail dog???
$15 each, $25 for both.
Bar bag pouch without the harness #1
Bar bag pouch without the harness #2
Cute kid not included.
Cute kid not included.
Both have curved sides to go around your stuff bag
Both have water resistant zippers, but different sizes of zipper.
One has a padded back and reflective tape, the other doesn't.
Here's the first bar bag harness I ever made. A few steps up from just using straps, but nowhere near a real bar bag. $15 shipped.
Next up is some warm gear for the coming winter...
Here's a hood for when your jacket doesn't have one and you need a little something extra.
$25. Has a cord for a chin strap and a short zipper in the front. Pretty thick and warm.
And...... one pogie liner. Yep, I only made one and did a redesign. So its yours if you have a use for it. Its some sort of synthetic insulation - polarguard, primaloft, or the like, with thin breathable nylon on either side. The velcro is to hold it into the shell that I never made. There's a zipper pocket in there too.
Yours for $8 to cover shipping, or free with any other order.
That's it for now, other than a few bonus baby adventure pictures.
Helping Daddy start a fire with flint and steel on a frosty morning!
Its cold outside of the nest!
