Bike Shop Hub Center:

The business and work culture of Bike Shop Hub in all it's glory.

When we have new products, sales, weird marketing ideas, commentary on the cycling industry, or embarrasing photos of of the staff, this is where you'll find it.

And since we are located in Arizona, we'll talk about the cycling scene in the state.

Join the conversation.

Send In Your Cycling Photos

We get to see and touch and test all sorts of great cycling gear here at our world headquarters. But we actually get to meet very few of our customers in person.

We just know you are out there taking pictures of your amazing cycling adventures. We want to see them! The best ones will be shared on the relevant section of this blog: Bike Cargo Trailers, Bike Touring, Bike Technology and Family Cycling.

Ortlieb Ultimate 5 Classic Compact – Zinger & Quick Review


The Ortlieb Ulimate 5 Compact Classic is on sale for $49 the next week thru Nov. 18th. I’ve recently mounted this great little bag onto my bike and have really been enjoying the convenience of it. I’d previously mounted larger handlebar bags to my bike, and while I found them very useful for bike touring and occasional use, I found them to be a little bit to large for everyday use around town. Around town, I’ve found that I prefer having a smaller more compact bag up front. I still use my saddlebag for tools and a pannier for when I have more stuff. But when I just have something extra that I want to have handy, this is my pocket for it. A cable lock for the ride down the street, a place to stow my camera, a pouch for the burrito I just picked up, this convenient bag does the trick. It looks good on my handlebars as well, unobtrusive with a splash of style in 4 colors in the Classic material or grey in the Plus version.
