M-Wave Handlebar Bag + Modolo Yuma Trekking Bars - attachment help?

Hi all,

I'm due to receive an M-Wave handlebar bag soon, from Messingschlager of Germany. I have a set of Modolo YUMA trekking bars, and will need to come up with a way to attach the bag to the bars. I've looked into Ortlieb's bar extension, but the guys at Messingschlager don't think the two are compatible. I've contacted Ortlieb to get their opinion.

I'm wondering what my options are at this point? What ingenious solutions have you guys come up with when faced with a similar problem?

Cheers,

Jack.

When I had a set of trekking bars on my LHT, to mount an Arkel handlebar bag, I installed a second stem below the handlebar stem. I then cut a short section from an old handlebar to use in this stem & mounted the bag to this. This cleared the brakes/shifters on the Trekking bars and also placed the bag level with the handlebar.

+1, I too use a 2nd handlebar stem to have a Place for the Bar bag mounts .. Under My Trekking Bars .. WB Bicycle Gallery: Robert Clark's Koga Miyata WTR

this one takes up less steerer spacer stack height than using an actual 2nd threadless stem
Thorn Accessory Bar T Shaped 105 mm Extension - 16.99

theres a shorter one too Thorn Accessory Bar T Shaped 55 mm Extension - 16.99


This is apparently your bar Mount https://c.shld.net/rpx/i/s/i/spin/ima...3&op_sharpen=1...

so this combination should work . already doing International Shipping UK will be no more difficult than Germany.

Second stem but I used PVC pipe instead of a piece of handlebar.

Alloy tubing in 1" and even 'oversize' 1.25" is also cheap enough.. and in most hardware stores.


If you had bought Ortlieb they have an extender to simply move the whole mount forward still attached to the bar itself.

https://www.ortlieb.com/_prod.php?lan...oy=radzubehoer

as does R&K/KlickFix. for their Bar Bag Mount.

I had bought an M-Wave HB bag from Meijers in the USA. On the first local ride, the part clamped to the bar snapped in 2. The plastic is very flimsy. What I ended up doing was attach the plate that connects with the bag to 2 long 1/4" bolts and the bolts to 2 electric conduit pipe clamps which clamp on the handlebar. M-Wave did not have a website that I could find. I think that the clamp is designed for old style road bike stems.

Looks like the website i was looking for is - M-WAVE - Messingschlager: The Bike Experience
I believe that the one I have is this in their catalog. #122385 .
HANDLEBAR BAG
UTRECHT TRAVEL
material: 600 D tearproof
with CLIP-ON bracket (art. 431523)
2 additional bags and insulated
bottle holder
window pocket for maps
carrying-/shoulder strap
reective stripes

I would suggest to get the Lotus bag from Amazon (about $30) which is a much better alternative to the M-Wave product.

Hi AK08820,

This bag that I'll be getting will be given to me by the company, as a thank you for reviewing their panniers, and for me to review on my website as I cross Canada this year. I hope that I do not have a similar experience as yourself!

I will be getting the "Ottawa" bag - #22710 .

If I do find that the bag is inadequate and is not what I want, or have problems such as you describe, then I'll be sure to look into the Lotus. Thanks for your recommendation and story.

Thanks to everyone whose contributed so far, sounds like a second stem may be my only option.
