Greydon Turner drives his business while riding single-track. That's how he invented PORTA-PACK, seen here, useful and smart, and priced under twenty-dollars.
As Greydon tells it: "I started making these when I could not find one to purchase. I had grabbed a couple of my daughter’s make-up bags and strapped them to my bike with bungee cords. I then bought a sewing machine and made a few bags in the basement. It was awful. After hours of aggravation and one broken sewing machine I found a local guy to make them for me."
Bags attach to the top tube by means of Velcro straps. PORTA-PACKS hold spare tubes, tools, a phone, your keys, and snacks. You have access while riding. Large zipper pulls work even when you're wearing gloves.
PORTA-PACKS are made in New Hampshire. Greydon keeps prices low -- you can get one for under $20.00.
