Best Bicycle Bags

Updated on January 17, 2014

Top 5 Bicycle Bags

If you are doing long distance cycling you will absolutely need a good bicycle bag. Bicycle bags are essential to long distance biking.

Perhaps you need it as simply a place to put your wallet, keys and cellphone. Maybe you want a larger pack to put your iPad, a change of clothes or other bulkier items. There are both smaller and larger packs on this list. Because of that I did not number the lists. There is no "winner". These are all great bicycle bags, simply pick the one that is best for you!

I have begun a new exercise routine, and a major part of that is the addition of a lot of long distance biking...so finding these great bags is an important piece of my routine. Enjoy!

This seat bag can hold a surprising amount of stuff. Not only that but it is very easy to mount and has some added reflectors for just that little extra bit of safety. If you want to pack a lot into a convenient bag, this is a great one.

 

M-Wave Bicycle Bag - Triangular Bicycle Bag

This bag fits perfectly in the "V" of most bikes tubing. While it is great for the small long distance bicycling necessities, like extra tubing, a multi-tool and maybe you wallet, this is not a hug bag and will not fit too much. But this bag is also quite aerodynamic and should cause little extra drag with the way it is placed behind the tubing.

 

Axiom Power Bag 2 - Top Tube Bag

This is solid and strong bag. It is very light and unobtrusive. Unlike more bulky bags it does not decrease your aerodynamic profile. It is prefect for a few small items, like a penlight, tire tube, tool, keys and cellphone. You are not going to fit the kitchen sink into this bag, but it does the job and will carry the items you need.

If you have a lot of stuff you want to take with you, to put it simply, this is the bag for you. These Panniers are quite spacious at 1,380 cubic inches but still do not ever interfere with your peddling motion. You can fit a laptop, changes of clothes iPad and extra water bottles in these pascious bags. Whatever you need to fit, if it doesn't fit in these bags, you shouldn't bike with it.
