The Teardrop is a drop-handlebar bag meant to be used with flared bars sized 42cm or wider. An ideal bar would be a Salsa Cowchipper with 24 degrees of flare in the drops (Pictured above: Bag mounted between Salsa Cowchipper 46cm). It mounts just like the Goldback, with strap holes allowing a strap to enter and wrap around an internal dowel.

 

Watch a short film overviewing the features on the 'video' page.

 

There are three fabric options to choose from:

  • Waxed Canvas is durable, water-resistant and wears beautifully. Through the fabric’s natural waxed finish and a HDPE plastic rigid liner, the bag's body is highly water repellent. The farbic has a 'wet' feel to it due to the wax, so keep that in mind if you ride in damp or dusty conditions. 

  • X-pac is an extremely abrasion resistant, waterproof, and tear resistant fabric that’s stiffer and lighter than waxed canvas. The outside of the fabric is 500 denier CORDURA® nylon or 10oz cotton canvas that is fused to a waterproof, x-patterned interior layer. The X-pac version of the Goldback has an additional liner on the interior of the bag.

  • CORDURA® nylon is quick drying, highly water repellent and has excellent resistance to fading, abrasion, rot and mildew. It’s also lightweight but not as stiff as X-pac. The CORDURA® version of the Goldback has an additional liner on the interior of the bag.

 

Bags includes:

  • HDPE rigid liner

  • Two Birch Dowels

  • BXB Voile Straps - 15” long, aluminum buckle

  • Two ¾” nylon straps with cam buckles.

  • Three strips of rack attachment molle on the underside - strap it to narrow or wide racks.

  • HDPE rigid liner to give the bag shape and tire clearance in rackless configurations.

  • Two slim side pockets for snacks and gloves. Grommet at bottom for water escape.

  • Closure: paracord cinch, expandable long-flap lid. Long-flap lid adds 5-10L dry-bag capacity.

  • Hypalon panel on underside and back at all attachment points protects against abrasion.

  • Interior liner is 400 denier waterproof-coated packcloth, or for $10 more you can have X-pac.

Teardrop Need to Knows:

  • Strapping the bag tightly to a stem's faceplate can cause abrasion - different faceplates and bolts can rub in different ways, so consider the foam spacers to allow some separation.

  • If you plan on running a front rack for support, some recommended options are Nitto Mark's, Simworks Obento or the Potluck.

  • The bag does not claim to be fully waterproof. There is a liner in the Teardrop, however it's not seam-sealed. I do my best to weather-proof bag through material choice and construction. If you need items to be fully-waterproof, use lightweight & affordable dry bags.

  • When attached to drop bars, cable and hose lengths may need to be adjusted.
