Saddle & Post Bags
It is a great feeling to be able to go on a long cycle ride without any care in the world. However, it is also important to be able to take some essentials with you on a trip like this. In fact, whether you're just going on a short trip, commuting to work or going on a longer enduro ride, being able to carry some essentials with you is a must.
At Bikester, we have a wide range of bike saddle bags designed to make your bike trips easier and more comfortable.
Quick trips to work
While a short commute might not be the time you think you'll need a saddle bag of some kind, it's still a good idea to have some way of carrying things securely. Bike rucksacks are a great option for short work rides. They provide a place to carry your essentials including a laptop and bike pump.
These types of bags come in a wide variety of different options too, all of which are ergonomically designed to reduce any back pain. Additionally, some of these rucksacks come with well-designed straps that you can adjust to your back as you move for a comfortable trip.
Long journey essentials
For longer trips, bike saddle bags can come in really handy. This is the perfect option if you want to carry a range of items with you but do not want to carry them on your back.
Lezyne saddle bags come in a range of different sizes, but all of them are great for keeping an emergency kit inside. Most of these saddle bags also fit neatly under the seat making them the perfect option to stash things while keeping them out of the way. These bags range in size from medium to small.
If you need to carry a lot more than just an emergency kit, then EVOC saddles bags may just be the answer you're looking for. The EVOC seat pack has an adjustable volume due to the roll-up pocket it uses. It can be used on height-adjustable seat posts and packs down small. Better still, it is waterproof and can be clipped onto the bike post quickly and easily.
Short, sweet and light
If you don't want to carry too much, but want the freedom to ride, then Vaude saddle bags are a must. The Vaude Race Light model is a very minimalist super light pack that fits right under the seat of the bike. It's not too big but can contain an emergency kit without getting in the way while you're riding.
Another very neat seat bag comes from Lezyne. The Pod Caddy is a semi-rigid bag that can fit nicely under the seat. It's waterproof and even has reflective piping to help you be seen in the dark.
For something extra you can take a look at bag accessories including small-sized air pumps, bike repair kits and small water bottles to make your bike trip more comfortable, no matter how long or short it is.
