As much as you may like to be able to throw away your expensive, heavy duty gravel bags in the trash, you might want to make sure they aren’t going to get thrown away again.
The same goes for your bike handlebars.
A few weeks ago, we posted a list of best cheap gravel bags to get your gears sorted and you can check out that post if you want to save a few bucks.
But now it looks like those same bags may be a little more expensive, according to a new report from BikeRadar.
The list comes from BikeLab, an online bike repair and maintenance site that also makes bike racks and saddle bags.
It lists a whopping 11 different brands of cheap gravel, and the list includes a wide range of sizes.
For the most part, the cheapest bags listed are pretty inexpensive, but some of them have been making waves.
One brand, BikeBandit, lists a $49 price tag.
That’s only slightly cheaper than the cheapest gravel bags listed on BikeRadr, but it doesn’t come close to the cost of a bike rack, which is $8.99 per bag.
Another brand, SuperBags, lists the same $49 value for a pair of bicycle handlebars and a $89 price tag for a set of bike wheels.
That price tag may not seem like a lot, but for a bike that’s more than a couple of years old, it’s pretty steep.
We’re not sure how much of a difference that really is, but BikeLab did provide a few numbers to help you decide which ones are worth the price.
The bottom line is that there are probably cheaper, but still cheap, options for bikes that are in good condition.
The only way to tell the difference is to compare a bike you own to a bike in the same condition that you bought it, BikeLab notes.
If you’re looking for a cheap, simple, and convenient way to store your gravel bags while keeping them looking fresh, BikeRadars list of cheapest cheap gravel is a good place to start.
