Wilde Bicycle Co Rack Buddy $90.00
Meet the Rack Buddy! A versatile, simple, and multi-use rack bag that’s incredibly quick to take on or off, can be easily swapped from bike to bike or rack to rack, can convert to a tote bag for running errands, or can be used as a stuff sack or dry bag when traveling.
The fabric is a favorite Made in USA waxed canvas 7oz sailcloth that will only gain beauty with age and use and they are sewn in South Minneapolis neighborhood by local bag maker, James from Beard Bags. They will serve you well for years to come.

It reduces friction on moving components while protecting them from contaminants, water, and corrosion. WT-G also prevents non-moving components from seizing together due to corrosion or galling.
