The Mini-Rando will be your favorite go-to for all day, fun, mixed-terrain rides. It's the perfect size for easy access to your compact camera, cell phone, keys, wallet, snacks, and light jacket.
The main body of the bag uses a plastic liner for rigidity, but the zippered top is soft for easier cramming, overstuffing, and retrieval of awkwardly shaped items.
The "trouser" pockets on either side of the bag make for quick access and storage of energy gels as well as their respective carcasses.
Attaching the Mini-Rando to your drop handlebars is a cinch. Use the pair of webbing and cam-locks to secure the bag to your tops, and use the length of paracord and cord-locks to the drops. You can rotate the position of the cord-locks so that it feels good in the drops.
While the Mini-Rando is designed to work best on drop bars, we have discovered several other applications that also rock:
- Loop and secure the bag to a Wald 137 Basket for added capacity for things you may need to access frequently.
- The upper support bar on the Klunkers makes for the perfect lashing position.
- For three-piece bars like the Crazy Bars, you can use the upper loops to secure the bag to the forward extensions.
- Off bike bike, using the included shoulder strap makes for a very fashionable and easy to use day-bag for walking and hiking excursions.
- Size: 10 x 5.5 x 5.5 inches (25.4 x 14 x 14cm)
- Capable of storing 6-7 seltzers
- 4.2L capacity
- Weight: 300g
Entirely designed and manufactured in the USA as part of a collaborative effort between Velo Orange and Road Runner Bags of Los Angeles.
Great mid sized bag, well made and mounts to the handle bar securely. Highly recommended.
After a couple weeks of use, the bag is doing its job with a couple small complaints. The plastic form support inside the bag bows out, (most likely due to pressure from the cables and the stem) which makes it a hassle to load gear into the bag. Not sure why the material around the plastic piece wasn't sewn up tight to hold the plastic piece in place. Will try some Gorilla tape or double stick tape, or maybe even sew it myself. Also not thrilled with the choice made for the clasp on the front. Doesn't seem to be real secure, but maybe it's fine. Time will tell. The bag itself is a nice size for day rides and appears to be well made.
I'm making a mini support using your decaleur to keep it away from the centerpull brake cable, which should make it even better for my needs. Will follow up with photos when done.
I haven’t had but a couple of chances to use the bag so far but I’m well pleased. Great size, good fitment, and US made. Does what you said it would and that’s most important.
My wife commented that this bag looks like it is made for my bike. It just looks great.
Perfect size for day trips. I has enough room for jacket, food, phone, wallet etc. The attachment is well designed. The bag does not bounce or sway.
I like the side pockets for gels and front pocket to store my phone. This bag is easy to install and remove but I never take it off. It is just too convenient to have.
It is also very reasonably priced. Great product.
