And more framebags

I have not been posting lately but certainly keeping busy.  Here are two new custom frame bags that just shipped out of the Wild Dork workshop and are on their way to adventures in Pittsburgh, PA and beyond.

Many projects begin with taking a tracing of the interior of the main triangle with cardboard and making a template for cutting.  I hope to capture the entire manufacturing process in an upcoming post.

Two newly completed frame bags intended for urban adventures in the 'Steel City'.  Or maybe a GAP/C&O Tour.  Or beyond...

On the side opposite the main opening, you will find a small zippered pocket for random small things.  I don't think it will fit a ferret.  We'll have to work on that.  The grey bag is intended for a bike with downtube shifters therefore the zippers are located further back from the nose.

Bags are lined in a color of their owner's choosing.  Here you can see a large black Velcro divider that keeps items from sloshing back and forth and keep the sides of the bag from ballooning out when you have it stuffed with too many Cheetos.

This bag could also double as a handy garden tool organizer that you hang from your fence.  Or you can go biking with it.  You choose.

This is going on a zippy road bike, but would equally be at home on a mountain bike, blending in amongst the trees.

I am excited to be making great products for great people intended for good healthy fun!  I will keep you updated on future progress with my business.  As always, if you're interested in a frame bag, panniers, or any other custom sewn work don't hesitate to reach out in the comments below or find me on Facebook at @thewilddork.
