Radar Roundup

Our Radar Roundup is where we take some of the news items to come across our inboxes into an easy-to-digest dump of sorts, culling down the clutter from our homepage and making it easier to stay on top of what’s going on in our little corner of the cycling industry. This will come particularly in handy when it comes to spring/summer product drops from our favorite brands.

Check out our Radar Roundup below with products, videos, and a Radavision entry…

The Pro’s Closet is Giving Away a Free Lead Out Bag With the First 100 Gravel Bikes Purchased

Beginning today, our parent company, The Pro’s Closet is giving away a free Lead Out Bag with the first 100 gravel bikes purchased. These bags were designed by our creative director Cari Carmean and feature minimal branding and compact size, perfect for your essentials.

Not every handlebar bag has to be big and I’ve found this size to be perfect for a spare tube, tool wallet, vest, pump, and a few snacks while riding my road bike.

A Look at the All New Wizard Works Pelagazam for the Pelago Rasket

I love my Pelago Rasket on my Crust Bikes Dreamer but one of the things I’m not stoked about it is the limited bag offerings. After reaching out to a variety of bag makers, requesting a “custom” bag for my Rasket, the team at Wizard Works threw its wizard cap into the arena and offered to help me out. Well, after a few months, my Pelagazam bag designed specifically to the dimensions of the Raskett, showed up and I shot some initial photos of this nifty bag this morning, so let’s check it out in detail below!

How Good Does the New Swift Industries Dovetail Collection Look?

Maybe it’s because I like birds, love using Nocs on trips, wear camp hats, and love the Appleton Whittell Research Ranch but to me, this is everything a product collaboration should be. Swift Industries teamed up with artist Wyatt Hersey on a very limited capsule collection, featuring all the products above and more.

 

This collection’s intent is to raise funds for habitat conservation first and foremost but perhaps to help you find goods for your loved one(s) this Holiday season? See the full drop at Swift Industries and be sure to set your alarm for today at 9AM PST because this stuff will sell out fast!

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.

Features include: 
-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”
-12L capacity

Additional Information: 
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.

Peregrinus Equipment, Light Handmade Bikepacking Bags From the State of México

In the mountains of the State of México, about two hours by car to the west of México City, there’s a little town named San Simón el Alto; in this town, there’s a house which would pass as any other house save for the sign that reads “Bebidas exóticas”, exotic drinks, and an outdoor bar, a Biergarten if you will, with chairs in an inviting position. Wandering in the garden, a big turkey makes sure everything is in order and slowly approaches whoever stays idle for too long, be it dog, cat, or person. To the right there’s the house and one of the doors opens up to reveal two sewing machines, rolls of Xpac and Liteskin, and a few half-made bicycle bags. This is Peregrinus Equipment, the bike bag enterprise run by physicist, cyclist, and nature enthusiast Nicolás Legorreta.
