Meet the Small Bike Bags with Big Storage Benefits
Bike bags are a super efficient form of storage, and our panniers and backpacks can store enough for a long weekend away or keep all your work essentials safe and sound en route to the office.
If you’re just cruising about town or taking a day trip to your nearest mountain trails, many people prefer to rely on something a little smaller to carry what they need for the day. Luckily, our range of frame bags, seat packs and handlebar bags has you covered.
In this blog, we’ll talk you through the merits of each bag, and the types of rides they suit best.
The Commute Seat Pack is probably one of the most universal bags in the Two Wheel Gear range, and is perfect for both daily commutes and longer expeditions. It’s a great bag to store things you won’t necessarily need to reach for mid-ride, like tools, tire levers, mini pumps, spare tubes and a patch kit.
It’s also large enough to fit in a light jacket, a beanie, or other thin layers to cover you in case of any temperamental weather mid-ride.

Part of our brand new collection, our Frame Bags – available in S/M (3.5L) or L/XL (6L) – are built for fast and easy storage on your daily commute. They’re also a great addition for a longer cycling trip or bikepacking adventure.
Best utilized by those who seek a ‘double duty’ bag for weekday commuting and weekend adventures, this design is weatherproof and adjustable, like all of our bags. Use it to carry everyday things, like extra layers, a light jacket or bike tools. If you’re adventuring, it has all lots of storage space for things like utensils, food, a first aid kit or other camping knick-knacks.
Its central point of gravity makes it perfect for carrying heavier items while maintaining balance and bike handling, while external access compartments allow you quick-draw access to items you might need on the move. Daily commuters will love the internal secure storage aspect, including mesh organization and a key clip.
We like to say we use frame bags like the trunk of a car – store items in it for adventure, but you can use it to carry regular daily gear too.
The Dayliner Mini Handlebar Bag is a great place to store your keys, wallet and phone. It also has room to spare for an extra few extra items like a light jacket or some beverages, if you’re meeting friends or heading to a party. The waterproof roll top closure ensures everything is kept safe and dry, and there’s an internal tote zipper, too.
If we’re bikepacking or riding in unfamiliar territory, we’ll put stuff like sunscreen, drinks, insect repellent or a map in here (because you never know when your cellphone reception might fail you!
We made this for riders who like to ride in all weather conditions with a light, but necessary amount of extra gear. It’s built with a rigid base and back plate, too, meaning it stands perfectly when set on the ground or a desk. It also has a carry strap for off-bike carrying.

This is one of our favourite bags to use for quick access to essential items. Recently covered by Electric Bike Buyer, it’s designed for smaller items that you need close at hand, we pack things like fobs, keys, wallets, sunglasses and snacks in here. The Top Tube is also great for stashing a multi-tool for emergency bike maintenance, or extra lights/reflectors for if you’re going to be on the roads after dark!
This bag is really versatile and can be used for any kind of ride. We love it for shorter trips when you just need a few things, or as part of your overall bike storage on summer bikecamping expeditions. If you have a bike trip planned, don’t forget to read our guide on How to Pack for a Bikepacking Trip!
The Top Tube is available in Graphite Grey, Black and now Tofino Blue.
