Artful, durable bicycle luggage made of canvas and leather
Handlebar Bags Patterned on traditional French randonneuring handlebar bags and typically seen on bikes that favor a front load, these bags offer the unmistakeable convenience of having your stuff within easy reach at all times.
Front bags --also called handlebar bags--, are a box shaped bag with a roomy compartment for holding food, clothing, a camera and any other things you might want ready acces to on a day's journey or a ride to work. Unless specified otherwise, front bags have a large single pocket on the front of the bag for items that aren't needed on a frequent basis; sleeve pockets on the sides of the bag for an envelope, a bar of chocolate, or brevet card; and two smaller pockets on the rear for frequent access to a phone, camera or wallet. Other features that round out these bags are a clear map case on the top held closed with velcro and a backstop sleeve to help secure the bag to the vertical backstop of most front racks. Generally the choice of a stiffener is up to you; typically people choose coroplast to give their bag some structure if they feel they need it.
