Can you describe the Cannondale bar attachment? Is it just velcro or is there some sort of integrated decaleur-like part which preserves access to the bar top?

Edit: just after posting I saw the Flickr link. I'm still curious though. Is there something to keep the bag from rotating or is the pressure of the clamp enough?

Here's a couple more photos of the handlebar attachment. I used the bag a tiny bit but never had much weight in there, it is quite solid though. One thing to keep in mind is that the bottom is just fabric.

I have two of these Cannondale bags and I have found that they work fine for light loads (no more than two pounds). But when I want to carry some more weight, like hydration fluids (beer), it can rotate down unless its tight enough. I have used a strip of inner tube between the clamp and these new-fangled anodized MTB bars to create more friction and this works.

My wife was very dubious at first, but she loves hers now. Its on her Trek 710 commuter. Our other one is on our tandem.

It cant carry the same amount of weight as a rack-supported bag (which I also have on other bikes for more serious duty), but it is super handy to carry enough items for a day-long outing and the mount keeps the bag away from the bars so your hands are unimpeded. In fact, it acts like a fairing to block the wind so your hands stay warmer on the tops.

No relation to seller. Just my two cents.

I can get a different angle tonight, no problem.

Did you happen to see the additional pictures in the album I linked? They are quite zoom-able and might provide some clarity.

I have a Cannondale handlebar bag with the same mount. I have carried 10 or 15 pounds in it. The mount does not slip. If it slips, you didn't use it right. I once overloaded it, and the bag started to separate from the frame, but the mount held tight. These bags are superb. I wish they were still in production.

This rack from VO must be an early one. On site now they have the adjustable feature built in.

GLWS!
