Our El Cofrecito front bag is designed for those with endurance or long-distance riding in mind. This is an elegant bag that will make your bike look like a million bucks. But, don’t let the looks of this little bag fool you. El Cofrecito front bag will work well no matter where you take your bike: on asphalt, on cobblestones, or even off-road if your route is peppered with a bit of singletrack. El Cofrecito translates into “The Little Trunk,” or “The Small Jewel Case,” and is great for keeping important things like your fuel, gear or other valuables on a long day ride, century ride or brevet.
El Cofrecito is to be used with front racks such as Nitto M-12 or Velo Orange’s front racks. Yes, no décaleur required! It attaches in a snap with its rear pouch that completely encompasses the short vertical support found on these front racks. Additionally, there are four velcro leather side straps that will insure that your bag remains securely in place at all times on any kind of terrain. This puppy isn’t going anywhere!
We have made our bag a bit longer than our competitors so you can put things inside that you don’t want falling off of your bike such as a mini pump, a “click-stand” bike stand, etc.
For those downhill sections, we have also paid attention to aerodynamics by making the front end more rounded and flattening out the back. The bag features a handle so you can remove it and take it anywhere with you.
We highly recommend using our saddlebag to increase total carrying capacity.
Features in brief:
- Made of leather and waterproof U.V. synthetic fabric. We aren’t cutting corners. This is the same material used on the top of sport convertibles. Very durable stuff!
- The zipper is completely protected by a leather flap. Leather velcro straps. Front and side reflective tape for safety.
- Here is a sample of things you can put in the bag.
- All of the things above fit snuggly inside. Leather piece up front can hold a front light.
- El Cofrecito features a usable area on top with d-rings to secure any extra stuff: battery packs, U-lock or other things that you may need on your ride. Shown here with a U-lock (bungee cords or U-lock not included)
