Our first new bag design of 2022 comes from Andrew The Maker in Missouri, who just launched the Jerry Sack, a slender handlebar-mounted bag for ride essentials that can be paired with the Swood T-Bar for extra stability. Learn more about it here…
At first glance, the new Jerry Sack from Andrew The Maker (ATM) might appear to be a fairly basic bag, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. His new handlebar bag has a generous 2.2L capacity that looks perfect for ride snacks and extra layers, plus the internal foam padding could make it a great option for carrying a small camera. There’s also a small zippered pocket on the front for a wallet or phone, and there are two strips of daisy chain webbing for attaching blinky lights or whatever else you may want to dangle.
According to Andrew, what really sets the Jerry Sack apart from other similar bags is the Small People Been Asking (S.P.B.A) attachment system. Behind the included foam handlebar spacers is a small wooden dowel to distribute the load across the bar and reduce sagging, and as an added bonus there are three different placement options depending on how much clearance you have above your front tire. The lower loops can also accept a dowel to keep the bag from folding around the bike’s head tube or they can pair up with the Swood T-Bar (learn more about that here) for even more stability.
The Andrew The Maker Jerry Sack is made to order in whatever colour combo you like, and wait times will vary, but they’re aiming to get them done in 3-5 weeks. For this first batch, ATM teamed up with Swood Cycles to offer the T-Bar with the Jerry Sack for an additional $75 USD. All T-Bars will be Black powder coated stainless steel with a pinch bolt for the fork’s steerer tube.
