  • Bicycle touring is a form of cycling where riders travel long distances, prioritizing pleasure and endurance over utility or speed. Touring can vary from single day 'supported' rides -- e.g.

  • Handlebars usually refer to the steering mechanism for bicycles, motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles and personal watercraft; the equivalent of a steering wheel. Besides acting as a steering mechanism, handlebars also may support a portion of the rider's weight, depending on his or her riding position.

  • "Handlebars" is a song by Flobots. It was released as the first single from their debut album, Fight with Tools and is the group's largest success, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks in just less than three weeks after the single's release.

  • The steering bar of a bicycle, motorcycle, scooter, or other vehicle, with a handgrip at each end

Trying to come up with the easiest to use and most versatile handlebar bag possible. Yet it must also be extremely simple and durable given my extremely limited (almost non-existent) sewing skills.

== key design considerations ==

1) Let store bought dry sack or stuff sacks handle the primary compression from the ends thus simplifying the design and giving it versatility.

2) No pockets: Taking inspiration from backpack designs I plan to use a grid of web belts so external bags and items can simply be strapped or hooked on to the front or back of the harness, i.e. with a carabiner or Velcro straps. (Later I'm hoping to make accessories like water bottle holders, maybe even insulated wb holders).

3) make the primary straps removable so I can use a wide variety of weights and lengths including double sided Velcro straps, hook and loop Velcro straps and traditional nylon web straps. This will allow the harness to hopefully accommodate everything from my zero degree winter bed-roll to my ultralight summer bedroll.
