    For the coffee addicted cyclist

    As cyclists, we drink copious amounts of coffee. If we could, we'd buy it in 25 pound burlap bags straight from the grower. Instead we, like everyone else, purchase small one pound bags, week after week. Having thrown out enough bags to wallpaper a sizeable room, Tate Labs, yet another group of coffee-infused cyclists, designed the Bar Fly Hopper Saddle Bag to put them to good use.

    Not so much a bag as a series of straps, the Hopper uses a standard coffee bag to hold your riding essentials. The straps secure the bag tightly beneath your saddle. Without a hook and loop strap around your seat post, your spendy bib shorts won't be subjected to undue chafing. Because coffee bags close using the "fold and pinch" method, the volume of the bag is adjustable depending on how much you wish to carry. 
    If you chose to not use a coffee bag, or (gasp) just ran out of them, 29er tubes may be held using just the straps. 

    The Tate Labs Bar Fly Hopper Saddle Bag comes in One size and One color. Though, if you're creative, you may start buying coffee based on the color of the bag for a little extra bike-bling.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been using the hopper for a few weeks and I like nearly everything about it. Rather than stuff my man purse in the center jersey pocket I use the strap to secure it under my saddle. This setup great during long winter training rides when I want to carry extra food or clothing layers in that pocket.



    My review would have been a 5/5 but....



    When I first saw the hopper at Sea Otter Classic it was accompanied by a very nice coffee bag, made from a material similar to reusable grocery bags. That's what I was expecting with the hopper. Unfortunately the little paper coffee bag that came with my hopper was rubbish.



    In the attached picture you can see the out-of-focus manpurse I'm carrying in my hopper.



    Other than the pouch letdown, this strap is getting the job done. I especially like that it affixes entirely to the saddle rails and there is no velcro around the seat post to scuff up the inside of my bibshorts. Let's hope the strap system lasts and lasts.
