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.
After 3-4 different, cheaper handlebar bags over the years, I had been eyeing this mini-rando for quite some time, but was put off by the price. I now wish I had just got it right away. For a non-rack bag, it’s definitely the best I’ve tried. The construction is EXCELLENT, and the feature set is perfect for running errands or longer rides.
I love the size and simplicity of the bag. And I really appreciate the outside pockets for quick storage and easy retrieval.
After searching and searching for the perfect bar bag, I found it. I have a few other road runner bags and this Velo Orange collaboration is extraordinary. Fits great on the handlebars, nice and sturdy, and fits everything! Could not recommend it more
I use the big Rando bag regularly, but this one is perfect for my riding around town and short endeavors outside of town on the country roads. Plenty of space and easy to retrieve items. It goes without saying how good Velo-Orange products are. I have several of their products and choose not to go elsewhere. The price is right for this bag as you really do get what you pay for. I guess you could call me one satisfied customer.
The workmanship is very high! Cloth is high durability and nearly 'waterproof' - some minor dampness in a long heavy downpour.
The Shortcommings - the two side pockets, which are open on the top - also hold all the water they catch. They don't have drain holes, so the water just stays put. Also, to keep the bag from 'sagging', we had to use the top loops to attach close to the hoods on dropper bars. That's ok, but having some nice fastening system would be a bonus.
