Wanting the ability to carry a little more on their rides without busting the seams of their jersey pockets, the folks at Ornot decided it was time for their first bag. Perhaps due to the popularity of bike packing or just the fact that you can fit a decent amount of stuff under your bar, that first bag is a bar bag. But not just any bar bag – working with Rickshaw Bagworks in San Francisco, Ornot’s bag has a unique style befitting of the brand, and even an Instagram holster?

To ensure the bag will hold up to all of your bicycle adventures, the bar bag is crafted from heavy duty, printed nylon canvas and it includes a rigid inner structure so that it isn’t flopping around under the bar when empty. The simple design has two accessory pockets on either side in addition to the main chamber.

Ornot points out that the side pockets were designed to allow quick, one handed access to your “Instacameras and music machines.” If you want faster access to your camera to ‘gram your rides, this may be for you. Of course you could use the pockets for stashing food or other ride essentials, but that won’t get you many likes. Each side has an elastic strap with what looks like a rubber loop up top to strap down your camera or phone and make sure they won’t go bouncing down the road.

If the Plum and teal fade job above is a little too 80’s, Ornot will also offer a little less wild black and teal bag. Both are made in the USA, and will retail for $78.

I had a handlebar bag like that back in the 80’s that was made by Cannondale.

We have a much more toned down version in all black available as well. Not everybody is going to be able to rock the purple fade color way.

Just ordered one. It does remind me of when I started riding back around 1986-87 with a more serious 10 speed and going on adventures around town and the surrounding towns with friends. I had a similar bag on that bike back then. Today being able to stuff a phone, jacket, food, and “stuff” for a super long day on the bike sounds like a great idea.

I disagree. The amount of design that goes into a bag like is a lot more then you would actually think. And just because there is no carbon, ti or gobs of travel doesn’t mean it is not cool!

Can I get it custom embroidered with a “Blazing Saddles” or “Bike and Roll” logo?

Maybe this could make me less aggravated and more clueless, fearful and/or joyous when crossing the GGB.

As a bike mechanic I’m philosophically opposed to bar bags. There are so many better ways to carry things on a bike. Why use something that often causes kinks in your control cables? I wish I had a dollar for every brake/shifting problem I’ve seen caused by bar bags and baskets.

$78 retail? There are tons of bags similar to this already on the market for under $30

@Paul None of them are made in the USA (ours in SF) nor do they have the same features.

LOVE mine! I use it for my super long rides on my Cannondale Synapse, to hold food and drink. And it doesn’t even look super dorky. The pockets on the outside are great for phone, camera, and extra batteries. And it’s easy to take on and off. I also have a similar model by Swift Industries but the Ornotbike one is far superior.

Perfectly designed closeout. Sorry to say but true.
