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 shockcord and cord-locks to the drops. You can rotate the position of the cord-locks so that it feels good in the drops. Our optional shoulder strap works with this bag.
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.
- 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

This is a great bag that sits nicely on my Rawland rando rack while still attached to the handlebars. I’ve been looking for something this size for a while and it fits my needs perfectly. My only minor complaint is that the single loop string down the middle makes stable rack attachment tricky.
Just what I was looking for to mount on my VO Rando Rack - not too big, not too small. Goldilocks! I added two grommets to the bottom of the bag to better secure it to the rack. Works like a charm.
I put this bag on the drop bars on one of my road bikes, and it was immediately apparent that the bag’s Achilles heel is the system to keep it upright and stable. The loops and elastic straps that run from the bag to the handlebars work OK, but with even a bit of weight in the bag it tends to bounce around. I doubled the elastic straps, which helped reduce but not eliminate the sway. I finally landed on a solution, which was to take a bar-mounted cyclocomputer bracket and install it vertically behind the bag. I then zip-tied the bag to the bracket. Everything is upright and stable now—no more bouncing, even with a bit of weight in the bag.
Swaying and bouncing issues aside, the Mini-Rando is nicely made. I’m used to random bags with flap that opens from the back, but the zippered opening on the Mini-Rando works well and keeps everything in the bag inside where it belongs. It’s a great option to more expensive bags that do much the same thing.
I like rackless bags, and I like Road Runner Bags even more--the Jumbo Jammer is hands down the best bike bag I have owned. I bought the VO x RRB Mini-Rando bag on a whim, and I am extremely impressed regardless of the fair price I paid.
These are great lightweight day tripping bags, well made and super handy. I don't care for the strap and buckles or looping the schock cord around the bars. I've used this style of bag for quite awhile and the best ones IMO use velcro straps to secure bag to bars and run the shock cord down to hooks on the fork eyelets. I've replaced the cam lock straps with velcro and run the existing shock cord down to mid fork eyelets on my old Voyaguer, this is a very secure setup.
