BikeShop Girl: Banjo Brothers  Metro Backpack ReviewFrom the Banjo Brothers Metro Backpack Review from Bikeshopgirl: Photo courtesy of"Bags seem to be an addiction for cyclist. You need something for your commute, your mountain riding, your city dwelling and grocery shopping. Finding a bag that can do a little bit of everything and not weigh 40 pounds at the end of the day is pretty important to me.A few years ago I reviewed the Banjo Brothers Commuter bag. For everyday life the bag was just a bit too big for me. I loved the white color and functions but it was just too bulky for my back. A few weeks back Banjo Brothers sent a care package of review items, one of the bags inside was their newer Metro Backpack, in white of course. As the box was being unpacked my girlfriend quickly put her claim on the Metro Backpack for her daily commute to the hospital. As she is commuting 10 miles a day, 6 days a week, with an extra set of clothes, iPad, overnight “essentials”, lunch and...

Velophoria: Standard Handlebar Bag ReviewCyclist and all-around good guy Harry Remer passed on this thoughts on the Banjo Brothers #01060 Handlebar Bag. At $29.99 the Banjo Brothers bag is one of the most affordable on the market. That said, the bag has plenty of nice features. Here is a teaser. Click on the links to read the full full review on the Velophoria Blog. (Photos courtesty of Velophoria) The Highlights:"Being a bit esthetically neurotic, I wasn't crazy about the extra straps, and assumed I would end up jury-rigging a less visible way to keep the bag from rocking. However, after mounting the bag (which, by the way, is dead easy) I decided they are sleek enough, and now view them as the mark of a cyclist who is ready to ride anywhere. Any visual clutter they create is offset by the low profile of the bag itself, which (in the Velcro version) sits snugly against the bars and is small enough to more or less disappear into the overall handlebar picture (especially if...

Banjo Brothers Cycling Phone Wallet Product Review

Posted April 14, 2013 @ 2:07pm

Banjo Brothers Cycling Phone Wallet Product Review If my memory served me right, we've advertised in every issue of Urban Velo since its inception. We've always felt strongly their blend of editorial and story-telling hit just the right balance. We also like that we know Brand and Jeff personally and as the magazine evolved they just keep making the product better.When we saw Brad Quartuccio, one of the owners/founders at Frostbike in February, we asked him to review our inexpensive cycling phone wallet. Our policy as fars are review is this: we make no effort to manipulate the results of the reviews - we ask for unvarished opinions and the opportunity to defend ourselves if there are any issues with the products.In the case of this specific review, it appeared first in 4-12-2013 and we had not talked to Brand about since handing him the product sample at Frostbike. Here are a couple of highlights from the review of the Bannjo Brothers Cycling Phone Wallet (Model...
