Vintage Cannondale bags, Vintage Trek

This flat bar conversion was a labor of love for my eldest, and now my youngest’s bike. We are heading out on a tour next week and I picked up this set of Cannondales for it. The old school handlebar bag makes me smile

The whole rig seems lighter than my other tourers even sans bags.

I like Canondale bags. The internal plastic frame helps to keep the bags light . I've still got my small red panniers. I always like handlebar bags and thought that they made sense especially back when touring, you had to use a map.

Nice setup. Enjoy your tour. Perhaps you can post pictures.
