Abimbola is the super lightweight bag designed for stealth transporting the bicycle on high-speed trains and long distance buses at no extra charge, or simply in the back of a car (it's not suited for air travel since there's no padding – we give no guarantee for that even if there were clients who have successfully used this bag in airplane cargo hold!). Both wheels should be taken off before placing the bike in the bag and the whole packing and unpacking procedure takes 3-5 minutes. The bag is very durable - we use weatherproof and rip-stop fabrics, with discrete hi-viz elements. One front pocket is big enough for your helmet or other stuff that you want to off-load while on board.
All bikes are different!
Sizing, geometry, bars width, saddle height, custom specs et cetera. Duly, we make each Abimbola bag to measure!
In order to make it in the right size we need to know the following real measures (if you plan to use it with several bicycles we need the measures of the largest one!), taken as described:
Vertical measure: from the highest point (saddle or bars, most probably saddle) to the ground (the big chainring should touch the floor as the lowest point of the frame).
Horizontal measure: from bar end of bars rotated 90 degrees to the rear dropout extremity (careful - take horizontal projection and not the diagonal that connects these 2 points).
IMPORTANT: Please, provide the EXACT measures, WITHOUT adding extra centimeters at your discretion!
Colors available are various, we don't keep fixed stock and rotate them rather often.
We recommend this version to ultra-cyclists and true adventurers* traveling with bare
minimum when every gram and extra volume counts. Folded bag fits in jersey pocket (if you don't wear XS jersey while riding XL bicycle) or bottle cage and then is used after the ride to pack the
bike to return home with some motored transport. Or before the ride to reach the starting point! Or both!
*) Can be used as emergency shelter, too!
More durable and a bit heavier fabric.
Generally advised for CX, gravel and MTB due to their higher weight/size. When folded must be transported in some kind of bag/backpack (or can be strapped to the bike or bikepacking rig).
