Front Rack Top Bag Roundup
Recently, a 2011 Salsa Casseroll showed up for review. With this comes a cute little blue front rack that needs a rack top bag. I don’t know much about this style of bags so this will be post to keep things sorted as I learn more about availability, features and pricing. Most likely will keep updating it as I find more, please comment if you have something!
Non-Custom Front Rack Top Bags
Zimbale Rack Top Bag
Made to fit on a Nitto front rack…the angle of the rear of the bag matches the angle of the upright tab on the rack. Same, consistently high level of construction as all Zimbale bags. Leather used for trim, zipper pulls and attachment straps is very soft and supple. Nice size for the commuter or randonneur.
I believe this requires a specific Ractime front rack, but very nifty clip on/off design. It comes in several colors!
Detours Black Transit Box Classic
This is designed to be a rear rack but believe it could fit some larger of the front racks.
Berthoud Frontbag Luxe
Berthoud makes this elegant frontbag of fine heavy cotton and top grade leathers. The outside pockets have leather strap-and-buckle closure. The catch? $327
