      I gave this to my son-in-law for Christmas, and he was very happy with the gift. He hasn't had the chance to use it yet, but he and I agree that it appears to be a high-quality product.

              My Colleague rides his bike to work each day. He complained relentlessly about having to carrying so many bag on his back. This product allows him to carry his lunch on the handlebars. No fuss. No mess. He was thrilled to receive it and says thank you each day. I like it beacuse it was recycled and it's insulated.

                      My brother-in-law is a serious mountain biker, and he rides his street bike to work. He loved this bag and said that he would use it to take his lunch to work. It fits six canned beverages, which is perfect for weekend rides with friends. He tweeted a picture of the bag to his bike friends, and they all loved it.

                                I use mine on an all purpose, city bike and had to get two black velcro watch straps to use as 'extenders' in order for this to hang appropriately off my handlebars; after that, it has been perfect for everything from food to clothes- it is my trunk, so to speak.

                                  Erin found this fabulous lunchbox that's good to go! Made from recycled materials, the convenient bag fits nicely on your bike handlebars. Would you love to take this potential new good for a ride?

                                  I am all for recycling, but I have lived in a large city as a biker for a number of years and there is no cleaning solution that could ever convince me that the amount of roadkill my poor tires have been forced to encounter (it's either ride through the roadkill or get hit by a car) is not somehow still worn through. Yes, I know the tread is technically what was in direct contact but still, yetch!

                                  what does this item smell like on it's own, since it's recycled tires?

                                  Good question, Julie! All of the recycled rubber products we carry do have a bit of a tire smell when you first open them, but the smell goes away after a few days.

                                  Love this idea, and the fact that it's made in the USA. Wondering if it's fairly waterproof/water resistent - (think of riding in an unexpected rain shower, which has happened to me a few times!)

                                  Pricey for recycled parts. Made in USA gets 2 thumbs up and a snap!

                                  I like the fact that this is made of recycled materials and in the US, but since I do not ride a bike I am not sure I would buy one. Maybe it meeds to have a larger handle too, so it can be used for a take to work lunch bag.

                                  I don't need one but it seems good. And made in Colorado with recycled.

                                  Neat, practical idea with a good price tag.

                                  I like the upcycled aspect, but too expensive for a lunch bag.

                                  The price is a bit high, but my husband is a avid cyclist and he would love this.

                                  Like that it is eco-friendly and made in the USA, but the price just seems too high for the item.

                                  I'd buy one in a minute! Great materials!

                                  As a cyclist, hanging your lunch or other items by your handlebars is not a great idea. If you're commuting, you'll usually use a rear bike rack with saddlebags or bungees, so that feature doesn't draw me in. Not a fan of the design either, but that's more of a personal thing.

                                  GREAT idea but too expensive

                                  If you sell one that will start the "trend". Cyclists are suckers for anything related to their sport. They're worse than bowlers ever were!

                                  Not my taste and I think it would smell
