Good Klickfix handlebar bags for folding bike?
 
Hello

I have a standard Klickfix adapter on my (Birdy) folding bike that I haven't used yet.

Ideally, I'd like to find a bag that has a small pocket on top that I can use for stuff I need all the time while riding (eg. smartphone, glasses, small bottle), and a bigger part at the bottom to carry some of my gear (clothes, etc.) to avoid putting all of it on the rear-rack.

Is there a bag that looks like that? Otherwise, I'm OK with buying two different bags, a small one (3-8L) for day-trips and a bigger one (10-20L) for touring.

Thank you.

NB: You can hang Ortlieb bags on Klick Fix bar bag mounts. I've done so.

and the KF plate mount and their wire bag support are available retail ,
For DIY, as they are wholesaled for other bag makers..

I got the wire bag support and it let me re use an older Ortlieb camera bag as a bar bag,
and use my old Eclipse bar bag too..


and have an oval, Aluminum wire frame shopping basket , that is decent.. detours brand..

i just put one on my paratrooper and when with the front sports rack..... that way I can use different bags. But in the past I have used one of the backpacks with success.
