Skip the bar bag altogether, then, and go the Revelate/Tangle route, I'd say. No vision hassles, no mounting hassles, no possible wobble hassles, even the $$/ problem is less than an Ortlieb or Arkel h'bar bag.

You can get an Ortlieb bar bag here for less than a Revelate tangle .

I have an Ortlieb bar bag, not sure of the size but use Klikfix mounting brackets which are Ortlieb compatible and don't require a new cable if you want to remove and replace the mounting bracket. I have Klikfix brackets on the tandem and the Mercury and switch the bag as required. I found the Klikfix easier to mount and remove the bag than the Ortlieb system.

Hi Mike, can you provide a link to the Klikfix bracket please.  I also find the ortlieb ones cannot easily be taken on and off without replacing the cable.  I only use a barbag (Ortlieb IV)when doing multiday tours so for the rest of the time I just have to look at the ugly bracket.
