Looking for a small front rack bag
 
Hi, Building up a Randonneur/Audax bike over the winter and now i'm looking for a bag to put on the front rack. I want a smaller bag that sits along the lenght of the rack, and not across it, like all common handlebar bags.

Something like this one, but preferably in another material and some extra pockets on the sides.

All help appreciated.

Why don't you want one that goes across? What problem do you see?

I have the same question. The traditional bag has all sorts of advantages over a front trunk bag. If a bag is going to be difficult to open on the go, it should just be on a rear rack.

My thoughts exactly. I have a Berthoud Mini front bag that works wonderfully for when I'm traveling light on any length brevet. It doesn't require a decaleur and even though the top opens toward the front, it's very easy to get into.
