Top Bar Storage Pouch

Hi All

Thinking of investing in a top bar storage pouch, one of those that sits on top of the bar just behind the handlebars. Just not sure how good they are and which model to go for. ideally I'd probably want one of those that has a transparent phone compartment in the top part but this isn't essential

Anybody got any experience of them that they can pass on, how secure they are, do they slide off the top of the bar to one side, do they effect the cables running under the bar etc

Thanks

    Put one of those bento boxes on your bike and you'll be mistaken for a tri-geek, you'll bore your ride mates senseless about how many hours training you do and your bike handling will go to pot ;-)

    Interesting post, didn't know these things existed :shock:

    Just ordered the Deuter Energy bag from Wiggle, looks pretty good for £10.79 :D

  • OK.......I'm unsurprisingly veering away from this as an idea :P

    Just to be clear I'm talking about a very small bag that sits on the top tube not one of those modern versions of the wicker basket!!

    Something like this I am (was) thinking about

    You may get more luck in the commuter section.

    As I couldn't give a stuff about "The Rules" I've got one of these http://www.evanscycles.com/products/topeak/tri-bag-stem-bag-all-weather-ec033777 in which I carry: spare tube, multitool,tyre levers and a missing link.
    I started using it because I was unhappy that my previous underseat bag rubbed my bibshorts.
    This Topeak one works OK... not perfect but doesn't slip or interfere with cables.
