Bike Burrito

From the Bike Burrito Blog:

I needed work, he needed a tool roll. He had the idea and I had the skills to carry it out.

Russ Roca and I/Jayme have been working for only a few weeks on the Bike Burrito and it’s proven to be quite a success.

We wanted to create a product that has classic aesthetics while also being durable and functional. Each Bike Burrito is handmade one-by-one in a spare bedroom in Long Beach, California.

Although we do not condone the consumption of Bike Burritos, we will not hesitate to post pictures of such attempts for documentary purposes.

It looks pretty tasty! I mean, what’s not to love about a plaid burrito? :-)

    I have something similar from Rivendell using an Irish Strap and waterproof cotton, its definitely a great way to keep a toolkit on the bike. As a plus the strap comes in handy when you have an unexpected need to secure something assuming you have a jacket/bag/jersey pocket to temporarily stow the burrito in.

    I’m sorry to say that I’m not so sure . . . looks a bit like a spare pair of boxer shorts! Might be better with a different material?

    Scoped this out the other day, it looks pretty neat. As an self employed craftsperson myself I wish them the best. I made one for each of my bikes out of army cotton waterproof duck a year or so ago.

    The rivendell thing is a joke. 3 dollars and in related items they sell you a strap for eight or nine bucks.
    Go to a fabric store and for 8 dollars get enough material for four of the things and use an old strap(if you don’t have one they are about five dollars for two at a decent bike shop, and you have two).

    Love the Brooks saddle.
    A bit out of my price range, but I’d still love a brown leather/leather-look saddle. Can anyone suggest relatively inexpensive brands please?
