Paper Roads bags in the 'Yonder' range are more standard in size. This top tube bag fits on all standard bikes and suits all purposes from commuting to brevets. It's shorter than the Overland Pilot – at 10cm high and 22cm long, it's more or less level with the average stem. It's 7cm wide at the back and narrows to 5cm to fit various types of top tubes while making use of the space. A narrow 4.5cm wide version is also available, for steel frames or as a rear top tube bag. While many other top tube bags tend to flop side to side, the Pilot laces up to the stem with shockcord to prevent the problem. 

For colour selection, see Fabrics & Colours. Full payment including shipping will be requested upon completion of your bag.


  • $140 each for either width options, pick your own colour panels


Fabrics available include Challenge Sailcloth Ecopak and fabrics from the X-pac range. These are ultra lightweight with DWR coating, imported from the US.
