Gary recently became the proud owner of a custom blue Tom Matchak 650b allroads beauty. He was looking for a bag that could fill the available space side to side between the handlebars without creating any crowding. The result is a roomy and tall specimen that will be able to handle most day-to-day carrying requirements easily. It includes an interior lid zipped pocket and a nicely positioned velcro backstop sleeve to grip the signature rack Tom built, upon which the bag will sit. Tom's backstops are perpendicular to the rack platform, unlike most common front racks you see which have an angle built into them that mimics the angle of the head tube. At first I found this choice puzzling, but I've since come to really appreciate it. My handlebar bags --and the bags of almost all makers I've seen-- are built as square boxes, and yet are required to mount to tilted backstops. Tom's racks make the union of bag and rack snug and secure. With the addition of a decalleur and under-mount velcro straps, Gary can be utterly confident his bag will never move.
