Large Gas Tanks

Posted by Revelate Designs

The thermometer says it’s 2 degrees out, and we just got a big snow dump from that bering sea storm. Winter is here like it or not!

It can only mean one thing… winter specific stuff.

Introducing the new large Gas Tank. Holds a ton of stuff.

Fully lined with closed cell foam on all sides, bright yellow interior, 4 elastic mesh pockets, #5 water resistant wrap around zipper.

Large tanks find their niche on rides where you need to carry a lot of stuff, call them a frame bag supplement but easier to access. The shape of these bags, I rather call them “cases”, flares out at the front roughly matching the width of our tapered snow bike frame bags.

The common question with it is “are my knee’s going to rub on it”, which is a tough question to answer. The short one is “probably.. but does it matter?” When you are snow biking or exeditioning – 95% of the time you are sitting and spinning, in which case there is no interference. If you do need to stand up out of the saddle and climb, then yes you knee’s will likely rub on the side. It’s a trade off for the added volume the bag provides. Wearing winter clothing makes this less of a deal than bare skin in the summer. Only you can make the call if it’s a deal breaker or not and if the extra volume is needed or is better packed elsewhere.

All this winter specific jumbo aside, Large Gas Tanks have found happy homes on many summer trips, Great Divide rides and anywhere else a lot of easy to access volume is needed.

Speedway Cycles Fatback Frame Bags

Posted by Revelate Designs

Just finished a run of Frame bags for our friends at Speedway.

Ti and Alloy frames across 4 sizes. If you need a bag for your Fatback give the good folks a jingle, they are only being sold through the shop.

They look like this in case you were wondering… single #10 WR zip, tapered front, padded seat and down tubes,

internal divider and mesh pocket, reflective attachments, white stitching because it looks bad ass. Proven and solid.

Custom?

Posted by Revelate Designs

Have had many requests for custom frame bags lately.

While I really appreciate the interest and would love to make dialed custom frame bags for everyone, I’m not taking orders for the time being and there is no standing build que for them.

Here’s why – Simply put – we want to put 150% of our time and energy into development and production of innovative products that everyone can use. For each custom bag, it’s a few hours or more of time taken away from these efforts. Right now we have a handfull of new products in development that I’m VERY excited about and the only way to get them designed, tested and produced is to focus all our efforts into them and running the company.

I hope you understand, we hope to bring back the custom bag program someday soon and make rad bags for everyone.
