Best Bike Frame Bags & Top Tube Bags Review

Bike frame bags are available from a number of cycling brands and in a wide range of sizes, materials, shapes and fitting positions. Before buying a bag, you should think carefully about what you are looking to store in it. For example, a handful of gels will only require a small top tube bag, whereas using the bag as a hydration reservoir will of course need something much bigger and will most certainly be carried under the top tube.

The size, shape and placement of the bag can have a huge impact on the quality of your ride, with over-weight bags affecting handling and wide bags causing space restrictions to your pedalling, which may even result in you changing your leg position – not a good thing.

Bags themselves are usually lightweight, made from waterproof fabrics, but hard case bags, or should this be boxes, may add additional weight. If the contents of the bag need protection, the additional weight be something you’ll have to bear but what on earth are you carrying? Some bags may have pockets or mesh housing for smaller items, gels for example, but zips should be of good quality so as to remain water-tight to compliment the outer waterproof materials.

Consideration should be given to mounting straps, lightweight elasticated straps are fine for bags carrying items of little weight be are unlikely to last long if you are stuffing a couple of fat bike or MTB inner tubes inside. As I said at the beginning, think carefully about what you are looking to carry in the bag. Mounting straps are usually adjustable, useful to accommodate different bike frames and also if you plan to use the bag on different bikes, which could easily have different bike frame widths.

“Small top tube bike frame bags are best for carrying snacks, gels and my mobile phone. It provides easy access when riding and doesn’t get in the way of my pedal stroke.”

In my personal experience, I find small top tube bike frame bags best for snacks, gels and my mobile phone. It provides easy access when riding and doesn’t get in the way of my pedal stroke. However, on my mountain bike, I prefer the bag to be under the frame, which is just something I’ve found to work for me over the years.

Some top tube bags have an additional compartment on-top with a transparent cover, designed for housing mobile phones. Personally, I would find this distracting when cycling, potentially taking my eyes off the road. I also cycle to get away from my mobile phone but there may be cyclists who need this feature so I’ve included some of these bags in the review.
