Nov 29, 2015 – At first glance you might think the Takeout by Portland Design Works is too small to carry stuff, but, my friend, you would be wrong.
Within the burly, lightweight alloy, handlebar-mounted rack sits a height-expandable, waterproof handmade bag fabricated in Portland by the crew at Blaq Paks.
Pull the bag out and you have a shoulder strap and map/phone pocket to make carrying easy. The basket installs easily on to 25.4-31.8mm handlebars, including dropbars.
A six-pack of beer fits perfectly in the bag with enough room leftover for other essentials like produce and Trader Joe’s roasted and salted sunflower seeds. Ours came with the limited edition Camo bag with blaze orange crest (not shown).
