***This is a Pre-Sale for a limited number of these bags. I’m not planning on making any extras. The Pre-sale will end 5/19 and production will be started 5/20. I’m guessing they should be done around the end of May.***
Remember how you could always count on Granny having a pantry stocked with Sweets? I do! That’s how I keep this bag when I’m headed out on a long ride.
The Granny’s Pantry is a bag that I thought about for years but, I wanted it to be a bit different than what was on the market. It’s kinda like a small Rando Style bag but, more stable and smaller. I wanted something that would be at home on a road or gravel ride, providing easy access to snacks and a small camera. This bag was originally designed just before I rode the Land Run 100 on almost no training so, I knew eating massive amounts of carbs would be essential! I survived Land Run and continued fine tuning the design for over a year.
One of the difficult things with making a bag like this for drop bars is support, keeping the load off the shifter and brake cables is essential. This bag uses a supplied lightweight support bar that is clamped to the bars(31.8mm only!). The bar adds a second set of straps just below the handlebars. Another consideration is having enough room to keep your finger from contacting the bag while using the flat portion of the handlebar. The bag includes 3 3/8” spacers on each side for the handlebar and 1 on each side for the lower support. The top of the bag is skirted on the sides to keep rain out and the top has a map/phone pocket with a Velcro closer. The top of the bag is closed by pulling the shock cord rearward around the stem. The interior has 3 pockets for organization and can be purchased with an optional removable camera pocket that has a soft and slightly padded body. On the front you will find additional webbing for pinning on a race number or carrying additional items.
