For the first time in decades, the U.S. bike industry is in the saddle.
The number of bikes on the road has tripled in the last two decades, from fewer than 10,000 in 1990 to more than 20 million today, according to a report by the National Cycle Manufacturers Association.
Bikepacking has become a popular way to pack bikes and riders have grown increasingly comfortable with them, which is why Amazon’s bike saddle bags and phones mount are so popular.
There are now over 3,000 companies offering saddle bags that can hold up to three bikes or two phones, according the Bicycle Retailers Association.
The U.K.-based company sells the Black Sheep, a bicycle saddle bag that has a built-in microphone, a built in microphone stand, an audio mic, a power cord and a USB charging cable.
The Black Sheep was designed to be able to fit three bikes, said Alex Gubbins, a Black Sheep spokesperson.
“This is the best case scenario, it’s the most flexible.
They can fit anything from a bike that is 12 pounds to a bike of this weight that’s over 20 pounds,” he said.
If you’re looking to save a few bucks, there are a number of accessories available that can make the Black Whales easier to fit, including a battery holder that can be mounted on top of the bike or a bag with a built‑in battery and speaker.
But some saddle bags don’t fit as well as others, Gubbons said.
Amazon says the Black Spotted Bikes can accommodate up to five bikes and a bike with an adjustable rear saddle.
It can be found for $249.99 at Amazon.com and $399.99 in the U, with a 12-pack option for $699.99.
The Black Sheep also comes in two sizes: 8 and 10.
If you’re worried about the battery holding up, Amazon has a new battery holder available for $49.99 that can accommodate 10 bikes.
