Practical and Cool-looking Rickshaw Bag

I ride at night. This bag will definitely allow me to be seen, by motorists. It will look cool as a fashion accessory as well!

Contest for for Rickshaw Bagworks Illuminated messager

I am a new bike commuter in Dallas, Texas. I have been carrying clothes, food, and work product in a basket. I am the only on the road (I see) riding 106 miles round-trip to and from work, so I need something strong, with a light that will get me where I am going with all the stuff I need to take with me! I am starting a new way of life for wanna be cyclists who have been told that Dallas is only good for recreational riding. I have lost more than one item of clothing and paper report on my rides, but I know with the new Illuminated message bag I can 1) fit my work in the bag and 2) keep the food and clothes in the basket.

What to carry in the Zero Messenger Bag

Like the bag I would be a minimalist carrier, have it empty but ready to fill with goodies when the opportunity arises

Rickshaw Bagworks Bag

My husband is a chef and he could put all of his tools in this awesome bag. The reflector strip would add an extra layer of protection for him as he rides home late at night after work.

Kristy Lapidus 312 days ago

I have a kid too

Pretty sure I can just carry the kid in there. What? Bad idea? Ok, just more beer then.

Mike Pop 312 days ago

Packing for work...and more

Rickshaw bag

What would always be in there...my wallet, cell, writing journal, bandaids, planner, camera, and sunglasses. Sometimes a hankie, sometimes snacks, sometimes a book. Oh, and always my small bamboo spork. You never know when you'll be hungry!

Mistee St Clair 314 days ago


I would carry clothes since i commute everyday to work, then once i'm off and decide to put on the miles at night i would put tools, a book, phone, keys, and cycle to the lake.
I would benefit greatly from this bag as an everyday cyclist.

Jack Ansell 314 days ago

Rickshaw Halo

As a building manager, grandfather to a toddler and a bike commuter who doesn't own a car, this bag would literally carry my life at any given moment. It would be a briefcase, diaper bag or commuter carry all. Have to love a bag that can do it all!

James Rick 315 days ago

Rickshaw Bag

CO2 canister, spare tube, dry shirt, laptop for work days, extra nutrition, literature from my bike advocacy organization, better-than-my-smart-phone camera, extra smiles and sense of humor.

Kelley Westenhoff 315 days ago


I would carry a spare tube, tire levers, multi-tool, sunglasses, a book, some energy bars, rain gear, my wallet, phone, and maybe a beverage.

My old Rickshaw computer bag has been all over the world with me and is holding up great over 100,000 air miles, in desert, swamp, jungle, and snow. Great Quality Bags!

Casey 315 days ago

Joseph Szul 315 days ago


What would I carry? What wouldn't I carry? This bag would be a permanent home for all bike related paraphernalia- lock, lights, jacket, pump,, tubes and tools.

Guy 315 days ago

Be my comrade

This little beauty of a bag would be my daily comrade, carrying my essentials without which I usually don't leave the house, like prescription glasses, contact lens case, office keys, home/bike lock keys, wallet, USB drive, cell phone, lip balm... On top of that will be whatever I need for a successful and great day!

Kathi 315 days ago

Battle Trophies

I commute to work in Texas, so I have to carry a change of clothes as well as personal grooming things so I don't flood the office with gym smell. Other than those essentials, I carry an e-reader or book, a pen and notebook, my lock, keys, phone, and wallet. But most importantly, I carry the souls of my enemies that I slay in glorious combat, and that is a burden that not just any bag can carry.

Perry Cavender 315 days ago


My city is known for art, music and community rides. I also ride to work.

Id use the bag to carry a change of clothes everywhere and my electronics on the way to where I am headed.

Id use the bag to carry the CD, poster, patch, record, piece of art, etc... from the music/art show on the way home.

I ride with kids. I carry eveything under the sun, snakes, extra clothing, water, sunscreen, groceries... you name it. I have probably carried just about everything. No car family of 5.

I'll carry all of my bike repair tools... -Karl Gossot

Karl Gossot 315 days ago

Perfect for commuting

I'm in the military and ride my bike to work each day, unless it's snowing (grin). I usually have my electronics: iPad iPhone BB and such. Change of clothes for the day and any paperwork and such that I brought home the day before. I like the openness and roominess of messenger bags and one compartment backpacks, because it doesn't limit what can be carried and allows for randomness ;)

Brian 315 days ago

Halo zero bag

I would be carrying books, groceries, and the occasional bottle of wine.

David Higley 315 days ago

I think the better question is what would I not carry in it!

With my daily commute across the city to and from work, to grabbing a pint at one of the local breweries, to meeting my friends for weekend excursion this bag would be a great way to carry everything I need on a daily basis, from my iPad, U lock, extra shirt, flask and heck why not a bike frame. These bags and carry it all.

ROx 315 days ago

A Kentucky Mountain Bike Association patch would look great on this bag

I would carry all of my information and project items for the local mountain biking club. The lights would be great for night meetings in the fall and winter!

Anthony 316 days ago

What I Would Carry With Me

Definitely sunglasses and chapstick. Snacks are a must! I would love to also transport groceries and carry any books I could!

Katie Baker 316 days ago


Being in the city with no car, I'm always on the go all day long. So my Halo Zero Messenger Bag would be filled with: laptop, book, journal, lunch, snacks, water bottle, camera, pullover, sunscreen, sunglasses, purell, chapstick...hmm, anything else?

Cory 316 days ago

Carry All

I'd carry my work clothes in there for the commute ... and it's great for when I work late nights with the added lights!

Wendy 316 days ago

In the bag

Squished and expired energy bars, crumbs and useless pennies

Tracey West 317 days ago

What I'd Carry

I'd carry enough snacks and tools to get me through whatever adventures I can find! It's a sad moment when your lack of cargo space decrees how far you can go and which adventures you can choose. This looks like a marvelous bag and since it helps you be seen at night there is no need to end your adventure simply because night falls! Ain't no party like a Rickshaw Bagworks Halo Zero Messenger Bag party, because a Rickshaw Bagworks Halo Zero Messenger Bag keeps you safe and stocked and thus don't stop!

Lenie 317 days ago

Going out stuff

I currently use Rickshaw's Large Zero bag and it fits lots of my clothes, wallet, and other biking essentials (map, lights, saddle covers). With the smaller bag size, it would just be the essentials.

Amy 317 days ago

Emillia Turner 317 days ago

How I Roll

I will use this bag primarily to carry stacks of $100 dollar bills (because cash is still king). I think this bag will be too small to carry any of my children (I have a very large professional size bag for that), but I think this bag would be a convenient size for carrying live chickens, rabbits, etc. Since it is waterproof, I may also use it to carry soup.

Seriously, though, nice small size messenger bag with bomber construction and flashing light--very nice.The light will be nice keeping out from under buses on the streets of SF.

Nathan S 317 days ago

Pump, spare tubes, levers, patches, wrenches ...

... you know, all the tools you've ever missed in past incidents and now carry around religiously because the day you DON'T have 'em is the day you'll need 'em. Beyond that, it depends on how many meetings I have that day (i.e., what size thermos of double-strong coffee, which client folders, et cetera) and whether I'm grocery- getting on the way back (canvas bags to sling from the handlebars).

marge 317 days ago

Picnic supplies

Delicious eats and whatnot for our family outing to movies in the park!

Iris W. 317 days ago


It's a toss up between Yuengling Lager and Dale's Pale Ale. Either of those would be honored to be brought to their respective destinations by a Rickshaw Bag!

Jun Z. 317 days ago

Some beer and a rain coat

Perfect for biking at night - perfect for caryring some beer and a jacket for a night out.

What I always carry

Christopher Stephens 317 days ago

Gym Clothes

janet north 317 days ago

Max, the dog !

i've been gradually training our 20 pounds schnauzer to feel comfortable in a messenger bag and on my back, he's getting better, so once he's ready to come with us for actual bike rides he definitely deserves that Rickshaw/Halo bag !

Hello Halo

I'll be carrying binders, clothes, food... pretty boring stuff. But at least I'll be visible!

Daniel Yen-Chiu 318 days ago

Best bag ever

I need a bag as I commute to work and most of the time I end up working late and have to ride at night. Having this bag would not only make carrying stuff easier but being more visible at night is superb. As safety is key the better cars can see me the better.

Tim Lee 318 days ago

All in a day's work

A bag of harpsichord repair tools (tuning hammers, spare strings and plectra) and a portable recording studio - laptop, microphones, cables, etc. The mic stands wouldn't fit in the bag, unfortunately, so they have to be slung over the other shoulder. Oh, and a binder of music for the gig, of course!
