When you are out riding your bike you tend to need quick access to a few key bits. Such as money, sunglasses multitool, mobile and keys. The Tri Bag mounts quickly to the handlebars so you can easily reach what you need.
The bag is reasonably priced at £15.92 on Amazon. At that price a waterproof rain cover is included along with waterproofed inner lining. This makes it suitable even when the weather decides to work against you. In practise this rain protection works really well.
I originally purchased one to house the ever useful Veho Pebble which is linked to my iPhone bike mount to charge up my iPhone if I’m using it to follow a long ride. However, I’ve since found it useful in many other occasions. In particular, recently I’ve been adding turn-by-turn directions to the London Cycle Routes eBook and inside the bag I’ve had my microphone for recording directions.
For those who prefer riding without a backpack and don’t want too much gear filling up their pockets, then again the Topeak Tri Bag will be a useful accessory to have.
Thanks to the small form of the Tri Bag, it fits unobtrusively to the top tube and stem. This means it won’t get in the way as you are pedalling.
The straps can be adjusted to fit thicker frames such as the ones you typically see on mountain bikes.
Overall, you’ll find many little uses for the Topeak Tri Bag and thanks to the weather proofing you’ll be able to use it all year round.
Available from Amazon.co.uk for £15.92.
