Yesterday we featured a Salsa Anything Cage as a simple, relatively inexpensive way to carry some extra stuff on your bike. Today we’re featering a different but similar way to store something.
The Blackburn Outpost top tube bag can also be used to conveniently store some stuff on your bike frame, though this is a smaller (and fixed) volume of 1 litre. While not offering the same potential for maximum capacity compared with the Anything Cage it does arguably offer more in convenience because it mounts onto the top of your top tube where that tube meets the head tube, so it’s pretty much right in front of you while still being tucked neatly into the dimensions of your bike.
We say the bag has a fixed volume but it does additionally have an exterior mesh pocket where you can shove an additional gel, phone, or camera (for example).
The bag is water resistant and fits virtually any bike. Cost is $55 plus taxes and we have a few in stock at the time of this posting.
