A creatively designed bag for TrailblazerGirl cyclists. The BeetleBag is a bike-frame bag and backpack all-in-one! Inspired by trips to the beach, this Southern California company created this bag for carrying essentials to the beach, but we’re here to assure you that it must not be limited to those surf and sand trips!


BeetleBag’s hidden backpack straps.

Prepare for any of your rides by setting it on the top tube of your bike, securely attaching it to the handlebar mount with the adjustable velcro strap and attach the 2 stretchy elastic bands to firmly anchor it around the top tube, easily done as the straps extend up to 6 inches.

Then, when you’ve reached your destination, unfasten it from your bike, unzip the back where there are two adjustable, mesh straps neatly tucked away, and voila, it’s converted to a backpack!

The backpack is padded with a soft, mesh-like, breathable lining so you have a nice, comfortable carry. Though small in size, the 2 large compartments are more than adequate for holding your snacks, windbreaker, sunscreen and even a small rolled up yoga mat, while the 2 small compartments are convenient for easy access to your phone, keys, ID, and money, plus there’s a handy water bottle holder between them for that all-important hydration.

Pop the BeetleBag on your bike as you hit the mountain bike trails for the day, ride to the beach, or head into town on an urban adventure or to the yoga studio. The fabric is water resistant, durable, and comes in grey/tan with a choice of 4 trim colors (black, coral red, ocean blue, and forest green). This is a new class of bike bags for your next ride, whether it’s to the mountains or the market!
