Triangle Made Bags

Messenger Bag from the Triangle - Tierra Ideas

Matt Mahler, of Tierra Ideas, got the first idea for his messenger bags in 2009.  Realizing how many bike tubes get thrown out at bike shops, he hoped to figure out a way to reuse them for something useful and even something that relates back to their original use, biking.  Tierra Ideas’ bags are 85% recycled by weight (on average). His company, Tierra Ideas, was founded right here in Raleigh. Needless to say he came up with a way to make a functional and stylish messenger bag that puts a second use to all of those busted tubes that we all get rid of.

The Hargett Messenger Bag (above) has a, 15” laptop fitting, cargo volume. It has a front Velcro closure with clips (standard and sturdy). The front flap of the bag has 2 clips that will hold on to your u-lock or other lock for a more comfortable ride (this is a great idea for quick lock access).  The interior of the bag is made of a gray nylon or recycled Delta Airlines curtains (your choice). It is super durable, and has plenty of room for all of your cargo. The Tierra Ideas collection also contains laptop bags/cases, small purses, drawstring bags, a bike seat bag, as well as smaller messenger bags and a few more items. Among those other things is the awesome leather wallet made of leather first class seat covers.

Getting The Lugs to Fit

This how the frame looks if you don't cut the tubes at all. For a sense of scale that is a 60cm frame on my old bike.

Bike in a Box

In the beginning stages of building a bike with the owner of Cycle-Logic and Mike Brooks. This is the tubing that we got and the lugs are these. I'll post new pics soon.

Pretty standard color matching. Infact I had almost the same component. This just works though.

Fat Tire (not the drink)

One might be able to ride this in a cyclo-cross race. It looks like a good commuter bike.

One of these things is backwards...

It starts with a seat pos... Despite that this bike looks really slick. Teal/light blue is beautiful. Something about the bullhorns looks very nice as well.
