Bicycle transport bag from three IKEA bags

I wasn't sure if this fitted the description of the blog, but this is a bag, something wearable, and it is refashioned from other bags. So I guess it is okay, although it is a very different kind of bag.

In my city you can't bring bicycles with the citybuses. But sometimes my son would like to bring his bicycle. And you CAN bring bags..... huuuuge bags..... so I decided to make at bicycle transport bag for my son's bicycle.

My choice of fabric was three IKEA bags.
I deconstructed them, removed all the straps and then assembled them again in a new way. I can't really tell what I did, I just sort of went with it and improvised until it worked.

The finished bag filled with duvets to show its shape.

Bag with bicycle inside.

Now, if I new the proper terms in English I would add some hippie sentence here about not letting "the system" hold you down ;-).


  1. :-D Can't help you with any english term/phrase either, YET add heaps of admiration for your

    a) Idea
    b) job done
    c) indeed sort of 'sneaky idea' ;-)

    Good on you - well done!

  2. That was a huge undertaking! And it definitely would keep from tracking dirt onto the bus from the bike tires, so that's good!

  3. Wow! I never would have thought to make a giant bicycle bag, but that's a brilliant way to beat the system!


  4. Genius! I bet you could market this.
