After almost a full year of redevelopment, the PTAP Designs Chonker is back! These bags are made in Maryland and can be used as either a handlebar bag or a saddlebag, Chonker is the perfect accessory for both your daily commute and your next bikepacking adventure. Influenced by classic English saddlebag design, the Chonker has added some new modern flourishes to work well for rack-less bikepacking.
-Tapered side pockets that fold down flat when not in use
-Internal fiberglass batten for rigid mounting
-Semi-rigid HDPE liner to help keep shape whether empty or full
-2 Voile Nano straps for handlebar/saddle mounting
-Interior Dimensions 12”x8”x7”
When using rack-less as a front bag, please allow for a minimum of 9” clearance from the bottom of your handlebars to the tire. Note that using foam spacers will lower the bag and therefore require slightly more clearance. The bag can sit comfortably between 44cm drop bars however we recommend flared drops at this width for optimal use and comfort.
You can pre-order a Chonker at PTAP Designs.
