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.

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.

Tandem Team Bike Commuting

thorn-tandem-with-vaude-tarpe-and-ortlieb-downtown-panniers-cropMy fiance and I decided to bike to work on our Thorn Tandem the other day. We are currently testing out 2 of the new bike commuting panniers that we are offering at BikeBagShop.com. I’ve been using the Orange Vaude Wright Tarp and Melanie has been riding with the Aubergene Ortlieb Downtown commuter pannier. It was entertaining to see both of the panniers mounted side-by-side on our RackTime Tourit Rack. The orange and purple reminded us of our Phoenix Suns that have just been eliminated from the NBA Playoffs. Does anyone else out there ride with an interesting color combo of bike panniers to represent their favorite team?

    Hi, any comments on the differences between the two bags?

    The specs show that the Vaude has quite a bit more volume, but in the picture they don’t look that much different in size, except the Vaude’s maybe taller. The Ortlieb sheer waterproofness is appealing, but the Vaude’s zip-away pannier mounts seem sensible, if not a bit of a hassle, having to roll up the zip cover.
