The Douchebags Savage is on the loose!

The new roll cage-inspired bike bag from travel brand Douchebags is now available to buy online – just in time for summer


Douchebags Savage

The Savage, the new ‘one size fits all’ bike bag from Norwegian lifestyle travel brand Douchebags (Db) is now available to buy online at for €699.

Inspired by roll-cage technology used in racing cars, The Savage is designed to offer maximum protection for beloved mountain and road bikes in transit, while allowing users to compress the bag down to just one-third of its full size for easy storage.

For full cycling gear protection, Douchebags have introduced The Wheelie wheel bag (€129) and The Guardian helmet bag (€69) to their new cycling range, which are also available to buy on the Douchebags website from today.

Douchebags Savage

Douchebags is already known in the travel lifestyle and luggage sphere for bringing its Scandinavian art of design to a high-quality, practical and smart utility; and it’s no different with The Savage bike bag.

Its patented Db Roll Cage works as a support structure for the tough fabric walls of the bag and creates a strong framework by applying tension to the fabric – much like a drum skin. The tensile fabric structure helps the bag maintain its shape and protects the bike by creating a distance between the bike and the walls, so the bike remains encased and secure.

Another smart feature of The Savage – as with all of Douchebags’ travel bag ranges – is the Db hook-up system, which allows travellers to attach other Db luggage to the bike bag, making life easier when carrying lots of gear at once.

As a travel essential for any cyclist who values their belongings, The Savage will be looking after some of the world’s best athletes’ prized bikes this season, including the Athertons’ of Trek Factory Racing team.

Two-time Downhill World Champion and multiple World Cup winner Gee Atherton said: 

“The difference between travelling and travelling well is efficiency. With so many travel days on my schedule, I want it to be a smooth operation. Good quality, lightweight bags make all the difference…”

Douchebags has also partnered with the world’s largest mountain bike YouTube channel Global Mountain Bike Network (GMBN) and will be keeping the presenters’ bikes safe on their global travels.

The Savage (€699), The Wheelie (€129) and The Guardian (€69) are all now available to buy from

Key features of The Savage

  • Db Roll Cage™ Protection –  superior protection against impact and pressure loads
  • Packability – the same advantages as a soft bag, meaning that it weighs much less than a hard-case bag and can be collapsed to one-third of its size and rolled up for easy storage
  • Secure bike fastening – the bike is mounted inside the cage in a centered, upright position and secured with straps; this keep the bike steady during transportation. All the bike straps feature buckles with locking levers, which prevent the straps from slipping and the bike from shifting position
  • Stability – the self-standing structure of the patented Db Roll Cage™ provides unparalleled stability and balance of the load
  • Tensile fabric structure – the patented Db Roll Cage™ works as a support structure for the fabric walls in the bag and creates a strong protective framework by applying tension to the fabric
  • One bag fits all – designed to fit most types of mountain bike and with the additional Road Bike Handlebar Adapter the bag will also handle any type of road bike with a curved, detachable handlebar
  • Reinforcements – all wear points and high-stress areas are reinforced with webbing and Hypalon fabric to ensure quality and durability over time
  • Interchangeable parts – wheel housing and plastic feet under the bag are mounted with screws instead of rivets, which makes it possible to replace any broken parts instead of the entire bag having to be discarded
  • Db’s hook-up system – makes it possible to attach other Db luggage and packs to the bike bag

The VV View: Lance Armstrong Scandal – Too Far…

Despite the Lance Armstrong Scandal, it’s not hard to dislike Lance Armstrong; he’s arrogant, controlling, self-obsessed, hypocritical and brought to cycling the horrors of bodyguards, blacked-out SUV windows, black socks and celebrity visits to the Tour de France.

The Bikes of Het Nieuwsblad and KBK 2014

Het Hieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne are the first opportunities for northern European fans to check out the new hardware.

Le Tour de France 2017 – Stage 19: Embrun – Salon-de-Provence, 222.5km. Edvald Boasson-Hagen at last!

To paraphrase the late, great Donna Summer; ‘they work hard for the money.’ Those Sky boys. Perhaps Henao had a few mountain days where Sir David and Le Chien Froomey didn’t think the Columbian did enough graft – he made up for it on Stage 19 though, riding tempo remorselessly on the front of the peloton. Spectacular? No. Damn hard work? For sure.

Le Tour de France 2014 – Stage 8; Tomblaine – Gérardmer La Mauselaine, 161 km. Blel Kadri Enfin!

‘Enfin un Francais!’ – ‘At last a Frenchman!’ said the caption on French EuroSport. And a highly deserving one – Blel Kadri won in the grand manner; in the break for most of the day; dissolving the partnership with his companions when they were no longer of any use to him then holding off the maillot jaune group to win ‘en seule’.

Oscar Onley – Looking Forward to 2021 with Sunweb’s u23 Team

Oscar Onley recently caught the attention of many, including Team Sunweb, with his win at Tour de Savoie Mont Blanc cycle sportive, a mountain time trial that took place on the same course as the final stage of the elite men’s race of the same name. For season 2021 Oscar will be riding with the World Tour Team’s u23 development squad.

Baden Cooke – “I think being an Agent is my calling”

Season 2014 is the first since 1999 that Victorian, Baden Cooke won’t be pinning on a number; after 14 seasons as a professional he’s called ‘time’ on what was a highly successful career to move into rider management. And whilst he’s not yet through his exams and officially a UCI Agent, he’s already enjoyed success in the role unofficially ‘helping out’ with placing Chris Horner at Lampre when things were beginning to look bleak for history’s oldest Grand Tour winner.

World Road Championships 2006 – Day 2: Elite Time Trial

The alarm went at 08.00 and I hobbled out of bed. The shower room was occupied so it was the full wash in the sink routine-hope nobody filmed it. It has to be the most unfriendly breakfast room in the world - nobody speaks so it was quick bowl of muesli and out the door. World Road Championships 2006...

Il Giro d’Italia 2014 – Stage 11; Collecchio – Savona, 249 km. Mick Rogers Solo

Mick Rogers, a ride-and-a-half – especially given the Giro is only his second race back from the ‘clebuterol carry on.’ He must have looked after himself really well during his hiatus. If you count the 2000 season when he was a stagier with Mapei, this is his 15th pro season, he was with Mapei ’01 and ’03; QuickStep ’03, ‘04 and ’05; T-Mobile ’06 and ’07; the various incarnations of High Road/Columbia/HTC ’08, ’09 and 10; Sky ’11 and ’12 and Saxo/Tinkoff last year and this.

Kuurne Brussels Kuurne 2018 – Dylan Groenewegen takes the sprint

Dylan Groenewegen (Lotto-Jumbo & The Netherlands) goes from way out, Arnaud Demare (FDJ & France) scrambles for his wheel but is lengths back at the line with Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain & Italy) doing well for a man whose speciality is late season races in balmy Italy, taking third. We agree it was a great sprint from the Dutchman but it wasn't a vintage Kuurne Brussels Kuurne.

Dan Bigham – “I’m somebody who prides themselves on objective decision making”

In 2017 he won eight British titles; with his KGF team he’s put together the most effective independent UCI Track World Cup squad there is and when Cycling Weekly want to speak to an ‘aero expert,’ he’s the man they go to. Dan Bigham has been a regular on VeloVeritas these last two years and we were pleased to see his selection for the Commonwealth Games.

Team Endura – Under the Radar; but not for long!

Here at VeloVeritas we felt that those Endura Racing boys would be giving us plenty to write about in 2009, so we thought we'd better sit them down with them and have a few words. As well as Jonathan McBain (owner of Pedal Power Cycles) and a lean and fit looking Gary Hand, a keen as mustard James McCallum was there too; so it turned into a lot of words!

Angus Claxton – from Plockton to Kortrijk

According to our research, the village of Plockton in Ross and Cromarty has a population of 378 – but it should actually be ‘377 and one would-be Kermis King.’ And you thought Plockton was only famous for ‘Hamish Macbeth’ and one of VeloVeritas’s favourite movies, ‘The Wicker man.’ Enter young Angus Claxton...
