We are big fans of Swift's 2020 Zeitgeist bag. The newest version is designed as a Saddle and Handlebar Bag. The batten is placed on the outside of the bag making it so you an easily slide the included voile straps through for easy and quick attachment to your handlebars. Each of the mounting point slots are about 1″ (2.5cm) wide and the attachment system includes two pairs. The inner two are spaced about 3.75″ (9.5cmn) apart and match the standard spacing of integrated saddle loops, which also happens to be the ideal spacing for mountain bike handlebars. The wider pair is spaced 9.5″ (24cm) apart and is meant for use on wider drop bars or flat handlebars. Make sure to check out and consider the Swift Foam Spacers Kit, adding the option of up to 1.5" of space from your bars to the bag, so you can access all the comfortable riding positions. 12L volume is an excellent size for about bike, and folding pockets make is usable on relatively narrow handlebars. If you are looking to use this bag as a seat pack, the attachment strap spacing make it easy to attach to the rails of your Brooks saddle. The included p-cord cinch strap that wraps around either your head-tube or seat-post
Made with either Swift's X-pac material or Cordura, both materials keep this bag light and rip and water resistant.. The HDPE plastic liner and batten hold the bags shape and keep it rigid. This Zeitgeist version features four D-rings and two integrated daisy chains on the flap, allowing items, such as a jacket or sleeping mat to be strapped to the exterior of the bag. Two collapsible side pockets allows easy access to your smaller items. It also features side D-rings for off-the-bike carrying needs. Swift included some reflective detailing as well.
"An excellent choice for gravel adventures, touring, bike-packing, and commuting everyday."
