In case you missed it, the extra-handy Revelate Tangle half-frame bag is now available in size X-Small to fit smaller riders and a wider array of gravel, road, and mountain bikes.

Revelate Designs’ made-in-Alaska Tangle is the original half-frame bag. It’s been a go-to frame bag for me over the years, especially on gravel and drop-bar bikes. It’s inexpensive, durable, and works on just about any bike. Revelate Designs recently expanded that last statement with an X-Small (extra small) version of the Tangle, fit for smaller riders and bikes.
