Compact Rando Bag
An "in-between" bag, bridging the gap between trunk bags and boxy bags. More storage capacity and features than trunk bags and "mini" rando bags. Lighter and less bulky than traditional rando bags...plus no decaleur needed! We trimmed the fat but made the bag expandable so you can squeeze in a few extras.
Our Compact Rando mounts securely to the rack without adding a decaleur...avoiding complexity, expense and weight. We achieved a tight bag/rack interface by:
- slanting the back of bag to match the rack tombstone angle.
- heavy duty velcro straps that cinch tightly around rack rails.
- feeding bottom straps through stiff leather sleeves.
- a wraparound stiffener—held under tension—that applies pressure against rack.
This bag is sized to fit the Nitto M-12 rack, Nitto Mark’s rack, Velo Orange and other *similarly sized* Randonneur style front racks. Non-standard sized mini racks and other rack styles will NOT mount securely. Please contact me with any fit questions before purchase.
Please note: In the process of improving our products, we occasionally make running changes. Actual item may slightly vary from what is shown in the photos.
