The times they are a changin’. Drop bars are getting wider, some bicycles have motors, and gravel bike tires are starting to look suspiciously similar to mountain bike tires. In response to these changes, the new Wizard Works Teeny Houdini is a minimalist saddle bag designed to hold the essentials, plus a little room for extras. The Teeny Houdini is offered in two sizes: a smaller road tube sized variation and a larger gravel/road plus/MTB size. Both are designed to hold a tube, tire lever, multi tool, CO2, and even a couple of nice rocks you might pick up along the way. Wizard Works also encourages the Teeny Houdini be used exclusively for snacks, for those with an appetite.
“It took us a long time to get the bag to the point where we were happy with the shape, there was a lot of putting things in and then taking them out again, unbuckling and then re-buckling, on the bike and off the bike tests. The bag commuted with us to the studio and back for a few weeks and then we all sat around the cutting table and discussed SERIOUSLY THOUGH, IS IT CUTE?” – Veronica Lowe, Wizard Works Co-Owner
The bag is held securely in place with an optional velcro strap on the seatpost, plus a Fidlock magnetic buckle and strap under the saddle rails. It has a velcro flap closure that is easy to access without removing the Houdini from the bike, and some room to expand when toting around extra large cinnamon buns.
