In 2007, Eric Parsons founded Revelate Designs (formerly Epic Designs) out of a passion for adventuring on two wheels. After years of experimenting with different setups for hauling multi-day loads, it was clear that a frame bag -- tailored to fit within otherwise unused space -- offered a highly functional way of carrying heavier items, such as foods, tools, and water. With an industrial sewing machine in a basement apartment, Eric began producing burly frame bags for fat-tire snow bike riders, including those racing the Iditarod Trail Invitational in Alaska. Demand for the bags grew, and after a short three months Eric left his engineering day job behind and devoted himself to designing and sewing bags for others who shared his adventure biking drive and needed functional, lightweight gear. The result is what you see on this site. Eric has since moved out of the basement and into a larger shop, but we remain a tiny Alaska-based business making quality gear for passionate cyclists. rev-e-late /rev-i-layt/ n. & adj. 1. a sudden, complete, or marked change in human-powered travel by bicycle. 2. exhilarated, blissful, ecstatic at the prospect of adventuring aided by innovative, lightweight, and highly durable gear. [derived from L. stem of p.p. efferre, from ferre, to carry.]

Jerrycan

The Jerrycan is a small rear mount specific bag to max out your carrying space. It's narrow, only 2 inches wide, so your legs don't hit it when pedaling. Good for carrying some spares, tools, or some food. Constructed with VX 21 fabric, padded ballistics nylon along the tube sections, yellow interior, Plastic HD side panel inserts, #5 YKK water resistant zipper, interior elastic keeps a multi-tool from rattling. There are two Jerrycan models: Regular - For most bikes, the seat post / top tube angle is slightly obtuse to fit lots of frames. If your bike has an acute angle there ( really sloping, dropped top tube) then it will just be pushed forward a bit and take up more real estate along the top tube. Bent - For bikes with gusseted braces at the seat tube/ top tube junction. Note: These bags are rear mount specific, they will only work up front if you have a lot of spacers under your stem.
