|I use an old handlebar bag plastic stiffener|
on the inside to retain the bag's shape.
I sewed dark colored velcro-type loops on the back side to secure the bag to the handlebar. The bag becomes a place to stash your valuables, snacks, a light weight jacket, etc. I've even used this bag for walking around New York City because the attachments blend in with the overall look of the bag.
Just think of all the unused but strong bags that can be retrofitted for the bicycle!
|I was able to place the bag in my sewing machine to fasten |
|Notice that the bag is held away from the|
bike by the reflector.
