The Ostrich handlebar bags and saddle bags were delivered today and they can now be ordered through the store. We will start shipping them on Monday.
If you haven't been following the Ostrich bag story, we wanted to find a brand of traditional and well made cyclo-touring bags that didn't cost over $200 apiece (like the famous French brand). Ostrich handlebar bags have been made for over 50 tears using stout cotton duck and reinforced with leather and rivets. They may not be as fancy as the French bags, but they are very sturdy, well designed, and of excellent quality.
My short review and additional photos of the of the bags are here. Alex Wetmore wrote a more detailed review of the handlebar bag and decaleur that can be found on his blog.
We also have the rain covers for the handlebar bags in bright yellow.
