eoGEAR Large Century Bag

Overview

This top tube bag will attach to nearly any bicycle: road, mountain, urban, tandem*, recumbent*, gravel grinder or cross.
*Tandems may require a pair of extender straps for the bottom Velcro-like straps as the top tubes of these bicycles are larger in diameter.

  • The main zipper can be operated with one hand while riding.
  • In addition to the main compartment, there are two pockets, one on each side of the bag: An exterior mesh pocket with quick-access Velcro closure for small accessories and a zippered fabric pocket for cash, I.D. etc.
  • The exterior of the bag constructed of rugged 400-denier Nylon Pack cloth & 420-denier Ripstop Nylon fabric, with a water-repellent coating on the inside of the fabric (we don’t use cheap polyester fabrics like some imported bags).
  • The main compartment has heavy-duty #8 water-repellent zipper (most other manuf. use a smaller, less durable #4 or 5). It opens from the front, so you can use it for stowing an external battery packs for powering your light or GPS.
  • It will hold one or two tubes, two CO2 cartridges, a small tool and a couple of tire levers.
  • The bag attaches with three hook & loop straps (we don’t use elastic that will stretch out over time).
  • Available in various colors
  • Reflective strips on each side for use in dim light or night riding
  • Closed-cell foam padding on bottom for protection of electronics against vibrations of road or trail.
  • Because of the larger size of this bag, we provide an additional stabilizing feature: a piece of Velcro on the rear, bottom side to keep the bag from rotating left and right. We provide you with a piece of adhesive hook, which you can adhere to the top side of your top tube—it matches up to the Velcro loop sewn to the bottom of the bag.

Warning

  • Some cyclists do not like having a bag on the top tube as it may interfere with their knees, especially while standing up to pedal.
  • We have had isolated reports of paint rubbing off caused from the straps on this bag. You may want to pre-tape your top tube first.
  • Shorter cyclists (~ < 5' 8") may find when they dismount that they catch their thigh or crotch on this bag.

Optional Accessories

  • The main compartment is sized to hold our exclusive fuel container (# 2451) — no more messy food in your jersey pockets
  • The outside zippered pocket is specifically designed to hold the optional Liberty Mountain Waterproof Wallet (# 4915)
  • Top Tube Extension Straps for tandems or recumbents, which have a larger diameter top tube (# 2446)

Phone Compatibility

Will fit phones up to 183 x 95 mm (7.2 x 3.75") in size. If your phone is narrower than 95mm, then a taller phone will fit.

  • Samsung Galaxy up to S5 and Note 4 with a “jumbo-sized” case
  • iPhone 6+, 7+ or 8+ with most large cases, like an Otterbox Defender box

For smaller smart phones (i.e. iPhone 5, 6 or 7 and the X) choose the Medium Century Bag instead (# 2006).

Concealed Carry

This bag will fit smaller handguns that measure from the barrel to the bottom of the handgrip (measuring diagonally) up to approx. 170mm (6.6") in length. A Glock 21 (45 auto), for example, is much too large for this bag.

Brevet Cards & The Brevet Bag

Our original top tube bag, the Brevet Bag (SKU # 2009), was made for randonneuring (my passion) and consequently the outside zipper pocket was designed to hold a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" US-sized brevet card. But as we released smaller models, we found less and less people wanted this jumbo-sized bag. On the other hand, as mobile phones have become larger and larger (starting in 2011) we are, once again, been making out bags larger. The current version of the X-Large Century Bag is almost as tall as the old Brevet Bag.

A brevet card, sans-Fold-over Poly Envelope (which we sell, SKU # 4916), will just fit inside the outside zippered pocket. With the addition of a poly envelope or most Zip-Locs, the card will not fit without bending it a lot. A brevet card, slipped inside a poly envelope, will fit inside the main compartment however.

Independent Product Review

Richard’s Recommendation

On longer brevets or double-centuries, one is frequently riding in the early morning or evening hours which necessitates wearing a jacket covering your jersey pockets — this bag serves as a practical substitute for stowing and accessing the gear or food that is commonly kept there.
