Handlebar bag for wing-style carbon handlebar.
« on: January 20, 2013, 11:51:22 am »
I'm gearing up for loaded touring next summer, and I'm trying to find a good handlebar bag with a quick-release mounting system that will safely work with my FSA Wing carbon bars.  Any suggestions?

The obvious, Ortlieb, meets both of your criteria.

The Ortlieb website specificly says not to use their cable system with fiber bars.

FSA makes an aluminum version of the Wing bars so if you like the shape but need a bar that can take the handlebar bag's clamps, consider getting them.  I have the aluminum Wing bars on a couple of bikes and they are very comfortable.
