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

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.

So for so good! Excellent

Rode 6 days in the mountains of NY state on road, bike paths and off road trails. No issues and served me well.

Tough bike trunk

Well built - easy access zippers and compartments. Holds a lot. Great product!

Covers Everything including Itself


Reviewed By: Pat on 8/8/18

The Tailrider is a well made bag constructed of quality materials. The built in rain cover is a bonus. I can easily and quickly move the trunk from one bike to another, and the trunk fits very well on the Arkel Randonneur Rack on my road bike. I got the yellow color. It is really neat to see more panniers and trunks in bright colors instead of black. We all need to be more visible to distracted drivers.
