Stash your gear up top
Green Guru Gear is the maker of everything from panniers to frame bags and more. They’re known for their practices in upcycling materials such as awnings, billboard signs, climbing rope, and inner tubes. Recently, they’ve launched the
Stasher (yet to be named) top tube bag (the brand Stashers owns the trademark for the word, so Green Guru Gear will be changing the name). This colorful gas tank style bag uses Velcro straps to secure around the top tube and steer tube. One zipper spans the top of the bag and opens to reveal a 1.75L internal space. Like their other products, the $30 bag is built with upcycled nylon sourced from industrial tents and awnings.

Plus, its integrated bag clip makes it easy to install and remove their saddle bags.

The motor mounts on the seat tube and adds up to 250W of power directly to the tire via a dyno. It’ll push riders up to 15.5mph for about 25 miles in wet and dry conditions. Also, there are 2 battery options including a 100Wh and 209Wh battery. The Revos is available on Kickstarter starting at the £350 ($470) pledge.
