Belk rolling three deep…

Riding to the pub, friday night, feels good.

Thanks for all your work, Adrienne!

Simple Sling update…

We have updated the proportions of our Simple Sling.

It’s now a little bit taller, a little bit shallower and a little bit narrower.  We’ve tailored it to the typical usage of one of these bags.  It is designed for taking a laptop, some papers, a change of clothes and small items to work or around town.  We think the new shape works really well. There will be a more detailed post on the new Simple Sling design when we have time to take some decent pictures of it (soon!).

The features on the bag are broadly the same, the front pocket system is the same.  It’s still a simple, just a better simple.

Here are some pics of the new shape going through prototyping…

The new dimensions are…

Large – W 15.5″, D 9″, H 13″ = 30L
Medium – 14.5″, 8″, 12″ = 23L
Small – 13.5″, 7″, 11″ = 17L

One of our original Simple Slings is on sale here.

And they’re in…

Belk Bags are now in stock at Push Cycles!

They have:

  • 2 medium Simple Slings (Black/Grey/Black & Olive/Rust/Grey) £95
  • 2 small Simple Slings (Navy/Brown/Grey & Forest/Kelly/Tan/Grey) £80
  • 1 medium Simple Backpack (Burgundy/Grey/Grey) £115
  • 1 large Technical Sling (Navy/Cranberry/Grey) £145
  • 4 touch pouches in various colours £20

We put a drop pocket on the inside of the main compartment of all of the Simple bags, which has two small pockets (for phone, change, baccy, whathaveyou) and a few pen slots. These are an additional option on all of our bags, but we did these for Push for free, so all the bags cost the same from them as they would from us.

So now you can swing by Push to check out the bags in person, and they’ll be getting new bags as these ones go out their door. If you like what you see but they don’t have you’re preferred colours, size, or options, feel free to make an order through them, or as always, you can email us directly at


Simple Backpack

We have finished prototyping our Simple Backpack.

We’re really happy with it.  Pictured above is a Medium, it’s a great size for day to day usage.  All our sizes are the same across the range, so a Medium Sling is the same volume as a Medium Backpack (roughly 25 litres).  We make it as simple as possible for you.

One of these will be going into Push Cycles with their first order, which they will have in stock by the end of next week. Specs:

  • Main compartment is 12.5″w x 7″d x 16″h
  • front simple style 2.5″d bellows pocket with Velcro tab closure
  • two flat side pockets
  • padded straps with loops for accessories (phone holder, etc)
  • folding weather seal across the top to ensure ease of closure and to keep the elements out
  • sternum strap

Additional options

  • drop pocket inside the main compartment with two flat pockets and pen slots
  • light loop
  • lid straps
  • back padding
  • handle

We will have more pictures  and details of the specific features of this bag soon, so check back.
