We are extremely pleased to show-off Two Wheel Gear's brand feature in Momentum Magazine! It was great to pay homage to our company roots and show the cycling community how far we've come and where we are headed. We have had our heads down in our shop developing not only products but relationships and are stoked to be recognized in such an awesome publication. We haven't given away all our secrets and coming soons just yet but there is much more to come! In the meantime, have a quick read on what momentum had to say on our messenger bags, bicycle garment panniers and decision to start building products out of a legendary waxed cotton canvas.
Established in 1999, we've actually been around for awhile...
Two Wheel Gear was started by Ken MacLean and Craig Coulombe in 1999. 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, and no sweat drenched back. The result was the Two Wheel Gear commuter bike bag (Now called the Classic) and to the commuters with our bags around the world....a better way of bicycle commuting was discovered. We are a Canadian company that was proudly born online. We create the highest quality specialty commuter bags and proudly supply Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand and throughout Western Europe.
