Cargo Nets ?

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by VladTepes, Nov 23, 2011.

  1. I already have a givi box for the back of the bike, but let’s say I wanted to fill that with, oh I don’t know, ice ;)

    I’d need to carry the rest of my gear strapped to the pillion seat.

    I gather there are suitable “nets” available for this purpose.

    Can anyone recommend a good one, where to get it, and how much I would expect to pay?

    I’m in Brissie.

  2. I always just use a generic one from the local bikeshop. It cost about a tenner. Works great.

    It has those dangerous hooks, what I do is put my helmet on and put down my visor so if the hook comes off it doesn't hit me in the eye.

  3. eGay.
    go for an Aus seller, faster delivery
    and plastic hooks. they can be removed and changed around.
    they are brilliant thingies. so convenient and flexible in use. anything from a drink bottle to a live chicken. just wind bungees around heavier items tighter where applicable
  4. I would avoid cargo/bungee nets.

    I used a ebay cargo net and it lost its stretch pretty quick. I had some bottles on the back in a bag and it rolled off leaving the carpark. Maybe I didn't tie it down hard enough, it was only 6 litres in total.

    I saw something called Andy Stapz and they look much more secure.

  5. 6 litres was probably a stretch, pun intended.
    but i get 3 kilo bags of dog food in there, takeaway food, stuff like that.
    i've even got chinese food with a bowl of hot lemon sauce home without spilling a drop.
    probably more due to awesome skill.
  6. I've got one of these.
    Prompt delivery.
  7. Andy straps are good but they are dear. You can leave a bungee net on the back of the bike and if someone steals it doesn't matter. Mine lasts for a couple of years. You need to use a bag for most things though.
  8. Does anyone know i Andy Strapz sells through retail outlets ro only direct.
    Looking to get best price I can, of course.
  9. You can get Andy strapz in stores and online.
