Outeredge Folding Bike Carrying Bag

Postby gaz » 21 Jul 2017, 5:18pm

I recently acquired a folder and started a thread on what qualities I should look for in a carrying bag.

Having considered advice, read a few reviews elsewhere and thought about my own needs I went for one from Outeredge.

A little room to spare.

It opens up easily and swallows the folder with a little room to spare. It packs away easily again too. There's a shoulder strap and the packing pouch serves as a bit of padding.

It's still cumbersome to carry the folder in the bag.

Folders are great for peak time train travel. Not so great for leaving locked up outside hotels or offices where I'm attending a meeting, too many readily detachable parts.

This bag will help me on occasions when I need to take the bike inside. Happy with my purchase.

That looks good, I might get one. Is there just the one type?

Got mine from this ebay seller.

The other one in the running was from Halfords. Looked somewhat clumsier to get the bike in/out of.

Edit: Mrs gaz has since acquired a folder and a Halfords "shopping bag" style carrying bag as linked above. She doesn't seem to find it clumsy or a faff to use at all.

Thanks gaz, just ordered one.
I've been meaning to make a bag in the three years I've had the folder :oops:
For that price it's hardly worth buying material and zips.

Got the same bag, seems very good quality. Had a struggle getting a Dunlop folding bike into the bag due to the lack of height adjustment on the handlebars. Meant I had to remove the saddle post to get it in. Other 20" folders fit it well. A bit more generous than another folding bike bag I have.

I've got one too. It would fit my Dahon if I hadn't added a larger rear rack. And my Tern Verge X18 doesn't fit because it's got dropped bars, which are always going to make the folded package larger! Oh well... Good bag otherwise.
