Looking for suggestions for handlebar bags for my mountain and road bike.  Prefer one that fits both.  Any suggestions.  Not too small, Not too large.  Thanks.

  I would get one with extra handle bar mounts that way just move from one bike to another. This is the one  i am considering after my current old style Cannondale wears out.

I got the arkel small with a rain cover, you cant put it on carbon bars though , I use it on my "touring" tricross, and Change my fiber bars to aluminum on my mt bike, with a xtra mount , I had to route my brake cables through the center of the mount because I use the xtra brake levers in-line.
I run avid rollamags coming out of my shifters to route the cables away from the bag.
The bag is tough, I have had no problems, The larger bag would of been nice, but the width of my bars was too narrow, and I pull a Bob Ibex, so didnt need larger. I highly recommend their bags, made in Canada instead of China, Lots of adjustment and great warranty
