Oveja Negra Posts an Instructional Video

For a new bikepacking setup on a drop bar bike, I went with an Oveja Negra Front End Loader/Lunch Box combination for a bar bag. They came with no directions/instructions and Oveja Negra had no info on their site. I eventually puzzled my way through to a working mounting but asked them if they had any actual instructions. They told me they were coming out with an instructional video.

It is now live on their Instagram page here. I'd still prefer some printed instructions with pictures, but the video would have saved me some fumfering.

Can't say enough great comments about their gear and Salida, CO staff.

Instagram? Wouldn't it be better to put instructions somewhere accessible to all? I guess the world is leaving me behind.

I've had Instagam for about a week. I have no use for it.

It is accessible to all - I don't have an Instagram account and viewed the video just fine. No different than putting it on YouTube, etc.

Owned by Facebook that spy's worse than Google, so I'll pass unless I visit on edge browser. Though ideally I'd prefer to have proper printed instructions for anything but to each his own...

I like Oveja Negra, I have their 1/2 pack frame pack and love it. Shame they didn't do a proper instructional sheet for it but maybe one day.
