This harness system is designed to create a stable and adjustable platform to carry a front roll on bikes with Jones H-Loop and other similar (loop) handlebars. The 2″ webbing strap attached at the stem is designed to prevent tire-rub damage, while the adjacent 3/4″ static-straps quickly secure the bag, and the auxiliary cords support each end. The separate adjustable elastic cord matrix provides for quick securement and access to items strapped onto the top of the loop. Loading and unloading takes only a few moments.
Installed weight is under 150 grams, about 5 ounces.
The center 2″ webbing strap and harness is designed to accommodate a variety of front-mounted accessories, lights, aerobars, and navigation.
Only four pieces of adhesive backed loop Velcro remain on the bars. All other components install and remove in a few minutes.
Both the 3/4″ webbing straps and the 2″ centre strap are long enough to accommodate other items such as packrafts, paddles, tents, and other bulky gear.
The harness is compatible with a wide range of roll-top drybags, and is designed to complement with the functionality of Bikepackers Foundry Flexi-Roll bag.
The system also plays nicely with a variety of other loop- bars, Jones 2.5 H-Loop, Jones SG H-Loop, Redshift Kitchen Sink (with optional grip), Surly Moloko, Alpkit Love Mud Confucius, BLB Hobo Loop Bar, On One Geoff Handlebar, Origin8 Strongbow, Wren Perseverance Bar, and others. If you have a loop bar you’re considering and not sure about compatibility please send me an email with picture and/or URL.
The system installs simply and easily and removes quickly without tools.
