Taking orders

August 20, 2013

I’ve been working on a FeedBag this summer and have produced a few prototypes that have been solid on the mountain bike over all types of terrain.

Made from X-pac VX21 it’s lightweight not to notice on the bike but heavy duty enough that’ll last you a long time. It has floating bright lining making it easier for you to find your last jellybean!
it comes with removable Velcro strips where you can attach to various points around the bag so you can get the best fit possible onto the stem and handlebar.
And to make the bag even more secure, there is an attachment loop at the bottom to securely fasten a bunjy cord to the headtube. All bags will fit to left or right hand side.

Overall a very well thought out design if I do say so myself.

I’m taking orders for these over the next few weeks, so if you’re interested send me an email to – nologobags@gmail.com to secure your order. Or get in touch to ask any questions you may have.

Available with black or white xpac fabric.

Tour Divide ’13

August 6, 2013

I received an email back at the end of March from Michael Arenberg who was attempting the Tour Divide this year. He had seen a post from Palespruce who has written a review of a framebag that I made for him last year.

He had the same specification- amongst other things, it would have to fit the 3litres of water that he had originally planned to carry on his back. So, i set to it…long story short, after an amazing effort and putting in 27 gruelling days he made it the 2859 miles, from Banff to Mexico!

As you would expect he, his bike and the bag took a battering but all survived the ride. The bag was probably worst off, having the 3litres (which amounts to 3kg) of water in the non-drive side pocket, the velcro started to give at the seam under the weight with 6 days to go! So, with a bit of ingenuity Mike jury rigged the bag to make the last few hundred miles.

The bag is now back in my hands for a repair and after a close inspection, it is still in excellent condition (apart from the velcro at the seams). I have tested my bags but it is great to see them being put to the use they were they were originally designed for AND for the best part being able to withstand the rigours of off-road life. So, whether it be the Tour Divide, deepest darkest Scotland or in the sub-arctic Finland or Alaska, keep using and abusing them- they seem to enjoy it!

A little dirty but still good!
