Speed Up Bag carries cyclists' stuff and reduces drag

Tue, 04 Feb 2014 13:30:43 -0800 It's not uncommon for cyclists to carry snacks, phones, wallets or other items in a handlebar-mounted bag when out for a ride. Unfortunately, though, putting a block-shaped bag right on the front of the bike doesn't do wonders for its aerodynamics. That's why Slovenian inventor Joze Petkovsek created the Speed Up Bag. Not only is it sleeker than a regular bag, but a bicycle equipped with one is … http://www.gizmag.com/aerodynamic-speed-up-handleb…

    How To Use Bike Computer With Handlebar Bag? I have denalli road bike can I put my bike computer on with handlebar bag if so how do I do it

    1. Reply

      Bike computers only take up a very small amount of space. And you can’t find anywhere to mount it either on the handlebar or possibly mount it sideways on the stem? Oh…I forgot. You have a GMC Denali. That bike’s not fast enough to require a bike computer. I passed one about a year ago while COASTING downhill on a hybrid. The other guy was pedaling.

      See links. Mount it on the stem.

    6 Litre Handlebar Bag – 70 Miles? In April I will be doing a 70 mile charity ride between London and Hastings – a route that is challenging because of numerous steep hills.

    Is a (6 litre compact) handlebar bag appropriate for carrying stuff on a long haul like this or should I get a rear bag or even a rucksack for my back?

    Many thanks in advance to all contibutors

      You do not want a back pack. I have done plenty of rides that far with a smaller handle bar bag. A apple and banana and a sandwich is about all you need for 70 miles. Load up on pasta the day before and take along plenty of water. Most charity rides will have food and drinks available at rest stops.

    What’s The Best Way To Carry Stuff On A Bicycle In A 100 Mile Ride? I have considered using my rack and rack bag, but it would appear a little heavy. In the past I carried a fanny pack. Now I’m considering a handle bar bag. I like to have a wind shirt to wear in the cool morning, and carry it later. I also carry snacks, a few tools, spare tube and a first aid kit. I notice most riders in the century just carry a seat tool bag, but that isn’t quite big enough for me. Any other ideas?

    1. Reply

      The handlebar bag is most convenient, it’s like your glovebox. The only difficulty may be fitting it to your style of handlebars. If you wear a backpack, you have that weight on your back pressing you down on the saddle even more, instead let the bike carry the weight. An aluminum rear rack is not very heavy and it isn’t rotating weight like the tires and wheels. I use both a rear carrier and handlebar bag They both come in handy on the centuries.Carry two spare tubes and a patch kit. Nashbar has little panniers called daytrekkers that are just the right size for jackets and snacks. http://www.nashbar.com On a century ride plan for the worst disaster and hope for a trouble free trip. Be prepared and self reliant.

    OK What Is THIS Thing On This Bike? http://img29.imageshack.us/my.php?image=bikething.jpg

    on the handlebars, what is that black square thing what is it?!?!
    My father bought me this bike, it will be mine on Friday, but I want to know what that thing is!
    ack! for sissies! must come off now!!!!!!!!!
    I’m thinking I will get new handlebars and a taller stem anyway. I am tall.

      Appears to be a handlebar mount for a handlebar bag or possibly a basket. It’ll come off in 30 seconds.

      I’d also take a closer look at the handlebar. There’s enough rust on there to cause me to worry. My concern would be the handlebar actually breaking during a ride in the near future. Bars are hollow, and it doesn’t take long for rust to make this a reality. Have your dad or someone that knows bikes check it out thoroughly.

    Handlebar Wobble? I have just fitted a rear luggage rack and a top box to my yamaha sr125.i have noticed that when i get some speed up that there is a slight vibration on the steering.when i lighten my grip on the handlebars it starts to shake.is it something to do with the rack and box weight or is it something to do with the airodynamics being altered.it didn’t do it before the box and rack were fitted

    1. Reply

      Since the weight issue was mentioned already, I will speak to the aerodynamics first.

      My friend had a bike with a top case installed after about a year. The rear top case caused the bike to lean, ever so lightly to the right when at high speeds.

      We removed the box and re-tested, the lean was not present. This test however, was at 65MPH. How fast are you going when you feel this?

      Normally, a ‘wobble’ is due to the rider sitting back, shifting all their weight to the rear. The front will begin to …. shimmy (sp) if you will, and when you drop the weight back to the front/center the wobble will begin. Normally a slow coast (drop in speed) will help reduce the wobble, and regain control.

      I would tell you to remove the case (if possible) to make sure the case is in fact the cause of your wobble. Ride the same route to test it.

      If confirmed, the case on gets the wobble and no case installed does not… add weight in the form of a sand bag to the bars, test again.

      On a personal note, I had a VFR and added a top case to the rear. Had over 40lbs of cargo in it… never an issue with a wobble.

    Is It Necessary To Install A Bracket For A Cable Lock On Your Bike? I don’t have some of the things it is asking for. If it is, I can ask the shop I purchased the bike from to install it. But is it a must? Thanks.
    Thanks. I just thought that maybe the bracket decreased your chances of having to walk home. ?

      I put my U-Bolt lock & cable in panniers (saddle bags) or a trunk bag. You can also just wrap the cable lock around the seatpost or anywhere it’s convenient. Even stores like Wally World, K-Mart & Amazon.com sell a handlebar bag that stores smaller stuff nicely.
