1733 Basket Bag $250
If you commute by bike and have a basket, 1733’s Basket Bag will have the biggest effect on your ride. Moving gear from a bag you wear to your front basket makes for a less sweaty and more comfortable ride. The Basket Bag is designed to fit a Wald 137 with two clip and strap assemblies that attach to the basket and remain there when the bag is removed. The connection hardware will fit other baskets, and if stolen while your bike is locked up, 1733 will replace them once at no cost.
Fits a 14″ laptop, multiple pockets and made in the 1733 studio in Chicago, USA.

Vitus Venon EVO Comes in an All-Road and Gravel Road Kit
A chameleon at home on gravel or tarmac, the Venon is an all-road platform made in two flavors: the EVO-RS (all-road) and EVO-GR (gravel road). Each of the build kits are specced to their specific uses. The EVO-RS comes with a road double drivetrain and 40mm tires, while the EVO-GR comes specced with 1x drivetrains and bigger tires.
The frame is the same, but Vitus gives you the choice to pick your preferred terrain — are you more the type hungry for washboard and dust, or do you prefer big days pounding pavement? Or, with a second set of wheels you can have the best of both worlds. The choice is yours.
Check out more details at Vitus.
