Following last week’s review, our latest Collective Reward comes from the team at Miss Grape in Italy, who’ll be giving an ILCOSO modular handlebar cradle to two randomly selected supporters of the site. Find details on Collective Reward #162 and other giveaways here…

Designed to help alleviate the tire clearance and cable routing issues sometimes associated with handlebar bags, the Italian-made Miss Grape ILCOSO is a lightweight, modular handlebar cradle that has impressed us with its clever design and functionality, and it proved durable during our testing period. We’re excited to be giving away two of them today for Collective Reward #162, and a pair of randomly selected members of our Bikepacking Collective will be taking one home—a roughly $140 value for each winner.

The Miss Grape ILCOSO’s thoughtful construction offers several positions for orienting the cradle to help it work with a broad range of bikes and bags. The included accessory bar is ideal for mounting a GPS unit or light without interference, and the cradle eliminates contact between the bag and headtube without shifting the weight too far forward. The result is a rock-solid system for holding a smaller handlebar roll with ample room for your hands and cables. With its nylon polymer construction, the ILCOSO weighs just 320 grams, and it’s compatible with 31.8mm bars.
