Get Your Life Organized by Entering the Cube
If anyone tells you that cycling or triathlon is a simple sport that requires minimal gear – tell them they’re crazy. It’s seems like the more you get involved in endurance athletics, the more gear and little gadgets you get. Staying organized, in and of itself can be a huge challenge.
Fortunately, Mountainsmith had the insight to create something that has simplified and changed my whole equipment/clothing management experience.
The Bike Cube, is exactly what it sounds like. A handy cube shaped bag that literally stores everything you need (minus your bike and wheels.)
Whether you’re are doing a single day race, or a multi-day stage race – you’ll love the Bike Cube. Of course you can put all your soft clothing into the Bike Cube, but it also contains a special compartments and space within that compartment for your helmet, shoes, sunglasses, food, sunblock, tools, etc.
I have yet to find something that I haven’t been able to find a handy place for within the Bike Cube. They make a basic and deluxe model. While there isn’t much difference between the two, the deluxe looks a little sharper and has many more little compartments to put various smaller equipment.
The only potential drawback some might experience with this product is that it doesn’t pack down smaller than the cube. It’s a fairly stiff, well-shaped bag and so if you’re trying to squeeze it into a fully loaded car, you might have some problems.
The Bike Cube Deluxe is regularly price at about $75.00. Certainly not the cheapest bag, but I believe it’s well worth the money. If you get tired of looking around your house or car for this, that, and the other piece of equipment – get the Bike Cube and simplify your life. I love not worrying if I have something or where I put this particular item. I just know that it’s all in the cube.
The Bottom Line ~
Mountainsmith is a quality company that makes quality products. After 3 years of using the Bike Cube, I swear by this product and recommend it to all my friends. It’s so easy to keep all your biking stuff together, in one place. It makes bike trips a dream and will keep you organized. It may not be the cheapest piece of equipment, but it’s well worth the money. Keep an eye on Bonktown and other discount sites, as they will offer discounts.
