The Rock Bar case has a low profile design to fit on MTB handle bars, under a down tube, top tube, or even on a long seat post. It is ideal for helping to help carry small tools, tubes, small pumps, energy bars, and more… (not necessarily at the same time) without being too bulky. For any bike with MTB style bars, the Rock Bar is ideal. Because the case opens from the short side with a zippered cap, the contents can be removed while the Rock Bar is attached to handle bars and placed behind and under the brake and gear cables coming down from the brakes and shifters. The cyclist can place the case on the bike at other locations too. The case also includes an optional to use and removable water-repellent sleeve that holds gear and can be easily removed.
Some example real world uses of Rock Bar include holding a battery pack for a light with a long power cable. The battery and cable go inside the case if the battery size allows and only the length of wire needed comes out of the case. Holding a mini pump or CO2 cartridges. Holding extra energy bars. The two main removable straps can also been used to attach items to the outside of the case. One example we used it for was to hold a light weight wind breaker jacket that was taken off. The jacket was rolled up and cinched down under the two main straps. Extra straps are also available to hold other items.
The low profile design also allows the Rock Bar to be used on the down tube of small road bike frames without interfering with the normal use of the bike. As an example, we tested on 50 cm road bike frames when placed under a down tube and the Rock Bar cleared the front wheel.
For road cyclists trying to get an edge on training, the Rock Bar is also available with weight pouches that hold up to 7 pounds. When used with the weights, one would attach the Rock Bar under a down tube to keep the weight at the ideal location on the bike. For cyclists trying to improve power when climbing, adding weight to a bike helps a lot.
The Rock Bar’s MSRP is $29.95 without weight pouches.
