Stem bags are designed for easy-to-access items without getting off of your bike. They fit on the stem and handlebar junction and are typically circular in shape. Many stem bags have three connection points; on the stem, the handlebar and fork crown to ensure a stable fit. A number of stem bags work together with handlebar bag systems, to save strap space in your cockpit. Stem bags are great for winter riding to keep your water bottle insulated, for snacks in the summer, or anything else you might need on day rides.

  2. AlpKit also makes a Stem Cell XL, much larger than the Stem Cell, one of the few bags, IMHO, which better utilizes the expanse of room around the stem and bar. Something to pair up with their Fuel Pod Large [gas tank].
