Perfect size

Mounted this tapered to the front. Moves bag closer under seat. Has lots of room for all day tours. I can carry gear to be self sufficient.

Arkel Tail Rider

Excellent design, workmanship and materials. Far superior to any other rear rack bag that I owned in the past. Made more in the style of a backpack (compression straps) and as tough and flexible.

Perfect Size for Day Rides


Reviewed By: Don on 10/12/20

The Tail Rider is the perfect size for day rides. I can easily fit a pump, spare tube, multi-tool and tire levers, lock, lunch, and light jacket in it. The two side pockets are easily accessible for keys, phone, and wallet.

Outstanding Gear


Reviewed By: John Fleckner on 8/24/20

This is among my very favorite bike accessories already. I am impressed by the material quality, the high visibility of the yellow version, the well functioning exterior zippers, and the rain cover. I am especially pleased with the secure mounting straps: they give a solid grip on the rack and are quick and easy to attach and detach and they have worked on two different racks.

Sleek and roomy


Reviewed By: Old man with a bike on 11/11/19

The bag coupled with Arkel-randonneur rack was roomy enough for carrying everything needed for a non-camping 3 day ride. I barely noticed it mounted off my seat post. My tail light was mounted on the seat post below the bag. I would prefer a mount on the bag or rack.
