My study Bible needed a new cover.
Adventure climbing "chalk" bag - but not for holding chalk.
bar bag pouch on left, harness on right.
bar bag pouch on left, harness insides on right.
bar bag harness with the head tube strap removed.
bar bag pouch by itself. Note the upper straps can clip into the lower buckles when off the harness. makes it more useful when you're away from the bike.
Harness attached to the bike with all straps open ready for loading. This is how I leave it at night on a trip.
Cam buckles and spacer foam go around the bars like this. Set this part up before your trip and leave it there the entire time.
When putting a load in the bag, clip the middle strap first so you don't have to juggle the stuff bag.
After clipping the middle strap, then clip the outside straps and cinch them all down tight.
Now we're ready to secure the pouch.
Take the upper pouch strap and clip it into the buckle on the back of the harness - be sure to go OVER THE HANDLEBARS for maximum stability.
Try it both ways - there is a vast increase in stability by putting the pouch straps over the bars.
Now that we have the pouch straps clipped OVER THE HANDLEBARS we're ready to tighten up the pouch straps.
Once the pouch straps are tightened up, tuck in all the loose straps and you're ready to ride.
Oh wait - we're not quite ready to ride... lets put this strap around the head tube (anywhere it fits to conveniently). Tighten it down and secure the buckle. This strap really helps keep the bounce down, and you can typically set it before the trip and not adjust it the entire time.
The anti bounce head tube strap after installation and tensioning.
The bar bag can be used without the pouch but its a bit more floppy since there's no straps going over the handlebars.
You can of course grab a bit of spare webbing and make straps to go around the handlebars as shown in the next picture.
A small, light load with stability straps around the bars in place of the pouch.
On a Jones H Loop bar with no pouch.
On a Jones H Loop Bar with the pouch - this setup is ridiculously stable.
If you're on a long hot uphill and want to take off your helmet... strap it around the pouch straps and it rides nice.
