♫ Are you sure René done it this way? ♪

I thought this was a bicyclepubes meme at first. It looks terrible.





Why do we have to do this? Can't we just cede these types of bags to Chinese drop shippers and the smaller boutique brands that have been doing them for years before? We really needed Silca and now RH to sell them?

I cannot imagine getting upset at this.

Please go for a walk. Touch grass.

Ride your bike, even!

Is there anything you hold dear?

Anything that swells your heart with inspiration on those long dark days of Winter?

When the riding is poor, and it feels as if you will be denied evermore the warm embrace of the Summer winds

Is your love so fickle that you will abandon all that it was, for something that can never be?

Declare the grey sky forever after, tell the Sun you desire her no more

You will live among the low dark clouds, blown along wherever the winds may take you

Away, away from the light and warmth of such a beautiful Summer day

Seeing the bike that the bag is hanging from...

I wonder what keeps this bag from pitching back and forth over typical undulations?
I used a leather, similarly round or "barrel" style of bag under my saddle and recall that I needed a thin bungee on it's closing straps to keep it pulled tightly against the underside rails of the saddle.

Again, not aero. Someone make a fairing-shaped bar bag. We have to deal with Kamm tail D shaped seat posts, why not paraboloid bags?

The logo placement is terrible.

They should pay you to ride with this. And you should use their money to buy a good bag from Velocolour.

Same, I tried it a few times on my gravel bike and didn’t like how it impacted handling vs nothing there.

I don't understand the pearl clutching here.

The traditional Rene Herse 1930s reenactment look certainly isn't for everyone. In fact, would guess that that market is getting smaller by the day. Why can't they play in this space?

The bag looks cheap with bad logo and placement.

This isn't complicated.

If you want to buy a $120 bar bag that looks like it came from Temu, be my guest, but don't expect me to blow smoke up your ass about it.
