Introduced in early 2006, the Original Shuttle Pack, the wedge-shaped cargo carrier that attaches securely on top of a car under any bike with a fork mounted wheeltray, is now available in five vibrant two-color combinations including green/black, blue/black, pink/black, orange/black and red/black in addition to the original all black. Custom color combinations are also now available.

Visitors to the Original Shuttle Pack website can view and select their preferred color combo or create their own multi-colored Pack by selecting the custom color “Make It Your Own” option. The custom color option allows for up to three color choices for each of the Pack’s three panels: driver’s side, passenger side and top.
“The Original Shuttle Pack is ideal for biking enthusiasts who are looking for an affordable and now colorful way to add gear capacity when taking an active road trip,” explains Shuttle Pack creator Mike Latham.
“The Pack is perfectly suited to carrying your helmet, shoes and other biking gear and its expandable interior can accommodate overflow storage and après ride essentials without taking up precious interior space.”

Made of durable, weather-resistant Cordura material, Original Shuttle Pack holds 41 liters (2,500 cubic inches) of gear, yet is light and portable enough to carry with a shoulder strap.

Inside the carrier, supportive foam maintains the wedge shape for easy packing. The pack’s main compartment carries all the usual biking gear in addition to extra clothes and other necessities and is lined with an abundance of organizer pockets. On the outside, another pocket keeps essentials handy, and a bungee cord holds loose or overflow equipment.

Mounting Shuttle Pack to the car and bike frame is a simple proposition. It attaches to any bike with Jettison straps that customize to the bike’s frame. Padded straps protect bikes from scratches and scuffs, and the aerodynamic wedge design eliminates wind drag or annoying noise on short or long trips. If bike grease gets on Shuttle Pack, it just wipes clean with mild soap and water, or can be thrown into a washing machine when necessary.

The Original Shuttle Pack in all black is $90. The two-color and custom Original Shuttle Packs are $110 each. To purchase a Pack, visit the website at For more information on Original Shuttle Pack, call 866-590-4040.

Original Shuttle Pack is an inventive cargo carrier that “puts gear into outer space” without taking up valuable cargo or interior room: attaching on top of a car, under any bicycle with a fork-mounted wheeltray. Designed to hold the large volume of gear essential to any outdoor enthusiast, the Colorado-manufactured carrier is a simple solution for anyone who has too much gear and too little space. Original Shuttle Pack is patent pending.
