Video | A Guide to Electric Bike Battery Bags and Frame Bags

Looking for a great solution to carry your electric bike battery and extra gear on the road? Bikepackers Magazine has compiled a list of the best frame bicycle bag options that allow you to carry everything you need on your bicycle and also help protect your electric bike battery. Frame bags are THE SOLUTION to protect your battery as they allow for the battery to ride suspended from the top tube as opposed to connected directly on the frame which may lead to bumping and excessive pressure placed on the lithium cells during an off-road bike ride. Certain battery systems are designed for bike frames and we offer these with our 500 Series E-Bike Kit and our electric bike line, but one of our favorite and most simple designs is our 250 Series E-Bike Kit because it offers multiple solutions for every bicycle.

You will find a comprehensive list of frame bag designs below which offer various zipper styles, waterproofing solutions, and even custom setups that you can submit cardboard cutouts of your frames and many of these companies offer these custom bags designed just for your bike. Please note that we offer the Revelate Designs Frame Bag and Leed Bicycle Solutions Frame Bag in our e-bike kit online store. A frame bag is measured using the top tube as seen below.

Our personal favorite frame bag is the Revelate Designs Tangle Bag which is available in our online store. The Tangle Bag fits the 250 Series PBJ, 10k, 10k+, 30k, and 30k+ e-bike batteries, but does not fit the Ultra and Ultra+ unless you are using their largest size frame bag. See the review below from bikepackersmagazine.com.
