Quick and easy!!

My back came quickly and was a great addition to my set up for a trip to Croatia! Ordering was easy communication was great and delivery was quick! Thank you!


Revelate frame bag

Perfect, exactly what I was looking for . It fits both my road bike and my touring bike and I’m able to carry the essentials that I need for long rides. I’d recommend this top tube frame bag to anyone looking to carry “extras” for the long haul! It fits securely and stays out of the way when riding. Great design!

Perfect fit and beautifully made.

So far it has been a perfect match to my bike. The only change I would make to the design would be to add some daisy chain webbing to the underside of the front lower surface for an option of using velcro or individual straps instead of the fixed rubberized strap for a slightly tighter fit at the right angle. Also trimmed the top big velcro back about 3/4" to clear a Revelate Gas tank rear strap. Odd that the two bags aren't designed to nest better but a good pair of sewing scissors makes custom fit easy. The Tangle bag is a bit shallower than other bags that I have used so it clears large water bottles much better and the access to the inside spaces is great. I have lots of other Revelate Designs products and they all live up to their reputation. It was great to be able to buy this bag locally at Campfire Cycling as I really wanted to check the exact measurements. They had everything in stock that I wanted which made shopping a pleasure. Also received great shop service. Revelate Designs Tangle Review

Great bag/Perfect fit

I am not disappointed in this purchase at all. I was looking for a half frame bag for my road bike where I could still mount my water bottles. This bag has probably more room than I need on weekly rides and plenty of space for longer century rides. Although I did have to adjust my seatpost water bottle cage a bit (down with a Wolftooth B-Rad system) I am very happy with this set up. Have always heard good things about Revelate Designs bags and Campfire Cycling had the best price anywhere with prompt shipping. Very happy customer here! Revelate Designs Tangle Review

Easy peasy

My wife first purchased me a medium bag that was slightly too big for my frame. Employees as campfire helped her along the way even delaying the shipping by a few days so that we would be home when it arrived. I returned the medium and purchased a small size and it arrived quickly. The bag is perfect for what I need. I commute to work and it can fit my lunch and some other items I may need. It is solidly constructed and should hold up for years.
