The Timbuk2 Story - Messenger Bags and Morep>Timbuk2 was founded in San Francisco’s trendy Mission District in 1989 by Rob Honeycutt, a bike messenger looking for a better solution for transporting goods by bike. Although messenger bags existed already, Timbuk2 was one of the first brands to create a solution that was specifically aimed at cyclists . It also accommodated the growing use of laptops, especially important in the city that's home to Silicon Valley. The company's flagship Timbuk2 messenger bags went on to shape the nomadic work culture of San Fran’s freethinkers and shapeshifters, allowing people to travel effortlessly from office to meetup with a functional, stylish bag. The Timbuk2 messenger bags range was expanded and a Timbuk2 backpack collection was added to the full product range. Today, Timbuk2 sells a wide range of bags and accessories and is available in Europe too.
