Racktime Shoulderit

Has anyone tried a Racktime Shoulderit handlebar bag? Here's a link: Racktime Shoulderit Front Handlebar Bag | Bike Bag. I'm looking for something that can function as a small briefcase, that's easy to take on and off, and can double as a handbag.

I'm curious about if this would look okay in a professional context (looking at the Urban Grey) and how durable it is. Also, has anyone used the web site I linked to?

I'd have to go rummaging through my archived emails, but I think that I have ordered from that site a ~3 years ago. Got the item ordered without issue. I can't help you on the product that you are looking at, though.

I'd like to see some pictures of it actually mounted on a handlebar.

Me too. This looks pretty close to what I've wanted, so I think I'll take a risk and buy it. I'll snap some photos and post a review to this thread once I've had a chance to try it out.

got a tape measure ? Dimensions: 13.4 x 10.8 x 4.7 inches / 34 x 27.5 x 12 cm

You can buy one of the KLICK FIX Mounting Plate Separately , and modify your actual briefcase ..
and use one of the KF bar bag QR mounts , which are adaptable front or rear ..


racktime is a part of the Ortlieb 'family of companies' so the mounting plate fits on their bar bag QR mounts ..

(as I can fit a Ortlieb HB bag on my KF bar mount, perhaps this is also true with that piece.)

I have done business with that AZ based business , I got my Carry Freedom City Trailer,

for my Brompton from them and some Ortlieb accesory parts, right around Xmas..
