People often ask me about the tweed bags on my Pashley — they’re “Nigel Smythe” bags from Rivendell Bicycle Works. Rivendell is mostly known for making smartly-designed, exquisite, lugged-steel bicycles. What most people don’t know is that they’re also very good at designing and producing bike bags and panniers. Their bags have a traditional flavor, and they’re not necessarily for everyone, but if you have a thing for canvas and tweed, you should definitely check them out — they’re super-nice. Riv is a small company, and like any small manufacturer, their inventory fluctuates, so check their site now and again if you don’t see what you’re looking for the first time around.
