Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Bike Bag! This bag is exactly what I've been searching for! On a recent ride I packed my camera, cell phone, wallet, pepper spray and more in the bag. My handlebars are also extra thick (31.8 mm) so most handlebar bags, baskets, etc. don't fit. I like that it opens to the rear, has a rain cover in case you get caught in a shower and have your camera on board and the "fanny pack" strap makes it decent to carry off the bike, even if you don't want to wear it fanny pack style. The Topeak fixer 8 bracket is perfect for my bike. I can't wait for the new Topeak baskets to become available as they also use the fixer 8 attachement system. Very, very happy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from more padding than space I was looking for something to take on a multiday trip where I had other storage behind me on the bike. I also needed something that didn't require attachment to the fork down by the wheel (struts). This filled the bill but way too much space was taken up by the padding and the fanny pack parts that it didnt hold much more than a few energy bars and my very small camera. I'd say the main candidate to get good utility from this either has a very expensive SLR camera or has a desperate need for a fanny pack and thus a need for people to make fun of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy product I think the previous reviewer should have returned their pack to Topeak. It must have been a lemon, as the one thing my pack does not do is sag, and that is after many miles of riding. I chose this bag to replace one that not only sagged, but tended to swing from side to side. This one does neither. It is very sturdy, and the convenience of the quick release mount is great when stopping for a sightseeing or errand break. I believe Topeak is a reliable company, and I would hope they would replace a non-performing product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly sized rugged bag Topeak products are so consistently well designed and reliable and this bag is no exception. The attachment to the bike was both easy to install and securely designed. Since the bag attachment occupies prime real estate at the stem and handlebar junction, the addition of an easily removable clip that essentially replicates that lost mounting space above the attachment point is important. That removable clip becomes the home for a variety of possible accoutrements, in my case a wireless computer and a cell phone mount. The bag attaches securely onto the bike with a cleverly designed gravity assisted clip, that permits easy on and off but seems like a single unit when attached without annoying play or jiggling. The bag is the perfect size for a spare tube, a snack, keys, wallet and if desired, a small handgun. The bag converts to a waist (or shoulder) worn bag for forays away from your bike.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pricey, but very versatile A bit pricey for it's small capacity, but we love ours nonetheless. It's a very clever design with lots of extra touches. We use ours for touring trips on the bike, then I convert mine to fannypack for walking in town, while my wife converts hers to a purse. Holds small items like camera, sunblock, glasses, and more. Small capacity, but has extra pockets and clip on tabs as well. We like the included waterproof cover. Ours has the old quick release design, which is very difficult to use. There is a newer quick release (Fixer 8), which should fix the problem. Be sure to get the newer model - REI only had the old one. Also, be sure to use the included cable, otherwise the clamps allow it to sag, as others have pointed out. Rugged construction and excellent padding- really well made. Highly recommended, as long as you can live with the small space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little bag! This bag is perfect for the essentials (cell phone, camera, wallet, snacks). It comes off easily and converts to a fanny pack. Those quick trips into the store or longer sight-seeing excursions are easy; just pop it off, make it a fanny pack, and your off with your hands free. I bought this because my older handle bar bag was too big for my dropped handled bike. They even have a little bar that you can install a computer on. Nice item, very reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for my specialized use. This is a small bag, it will hold wallet, keys and (since I have a permit) a small handgun. It is very convenient to access the interior and has held up well over the last year. I especially like the extra bar for holding a light (since I do end up commuting before sunrise). No sagging issues, even with the extra weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Right I have it on my road bike, and bought another for my hybrid bike. I do the 40 mile bike tours in and around the city (back packs now prohibited), this bag fits the essentials and an extra power bar or two without being too big or too small! Great handlebar bag!

Hello, Are all Topeak bar bags that use the Fixer 8 system interchangable? As in, can I use both a compact bag as well as one of the larger ones without having to change the mount?

Asked by: Mb17
Yes, that is correct. The Fixer 8 system is interchangeable between bags, so you can leave the mount on your handlebar and switch out different bags.

Two questions - 1. does the bag block a bar-mounted headlight? 2. Can you mount this fixer bracket on a carbon handlebar? Thank you.

Asked by: Breadalbane
The Compact Handlebar Bag will likely get in the way of a headlight. The bag can be mounted to a carbon handlebar.
