What to put in my new bicycle bag you ask? Well, run to the grocery store for whatever you forgot, pack a book to your favorite park, keep your emergency tools on hand. These bags are also the perfect carry for your camera, snacks, coffee, tea, cat (just kidding) spare shoes, etc. As you can see the sky is the limit.

Below is our super happy tutorial for how to strap your new Hand and Hide leather bicycle bag onto your bike. Follow the photos and instructions for quick and easy install that gets you on the road (or trail) in no time at all.

First - locate the two buckles you will use to attach the bag to your bike. You can attach the bag either on your handlebar or to your top tube (the straight bar of the frame).

Cinch the buckles around the bar and tighten to the best fitting loop. You want your bag to tightened until it is snugly strapped to your frame or handlebar, that way it won’t bounce or sway while you bike around.

And you’re done! No… really, that’s all there is to it.
