" Excellent size and weight. Internally padded with moveable dividers, so ideal for camera and bits [the reason that I bought it]. Size, weight and detachable strap makes this bag comfortable to carry as a shoulder bag. My last experience of handlebar bag on cycling holiday was that they can be bulky and cumbersome.
Plenty of pockets for phones, keys, or documents. All accessible whilst mounted and/or cycling. Good quality, detachable map pocket.
Slight issues
- two handlebar size adjusters would not fit my bike (Trek 7300). One too loose and the other too big to fasten at all. Reverted to rubber inserts and the basic bracket. [Not yet trialled over rough ground]
- map pocket a little small for UK Ordnance Survey maps
- separate rain cover in bright yellow. Takes up quite a bit of space in the bag. [Not yet tested in rain] ... don't know where I'd put it when the cover is wet after use.
"
Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Durable, Great Value, Versatile
Cons: Poor Fit

Can't decide between pavement comfort and off-road durability? Don't.
 

What are key differences from Transeo 3.0?

Difficult to see from limited web info what the differences are between the 2.0 and the cheaper 3.0.

Thanks

can you tell me if the Topeak Tourguide handlebar bag bracket will fit oversize handlebars? Thanks

See my review as well.

The basic bracket is pretty wide. It comes with two additional inserts that are supposed to step it down for narrower bars.

My Trek 7300 bars must be about 18-20mm. One insert was too loose for those bars, so the basic bracket must be even larger.
