We're just a couple of guys who hated rolling our work clothes in cumbersome backpacks. You should enjoy your ride to work and not worry about your clothes. We created the first bike suit bag to solve this.
Established in 1999, Two Wheel Gear manufactured its first edition bike suit bag in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It was the first bike bag to take your suit on a bike wrinkle free. When we started bike commuting we used backpacks... and after trying all the rolling techniques and folding apparatuses we knew there was a better way. We've learned a lot since then. We have rode our Two Wheel Gear bags to the point of exhaustion in -30 C / -22F to + 30 C / 86F Calgary conditions. We know they are built to handle serious elements. Bike commuting is better when you aren't worrying about your gear.
Two Wheel Gear was started by Ken MacLean and Craig Coulombe. The two were University of Calgary roommates, who both started working downtown Calgary and cycling into the core. The goal was to get their gear off their backs by making a cycling pannier that could take their work clothes to the office wrinkle free....No Rolling, No Folding, No Sweaty Back Pack. The result was the Two Wheel Gear commuter bike bag and to the thousands of customers who have purchased our bags around the world....a better way of bicycle commuting was discovered.
