PakRak Clip-on Luggage System

About the PakRak Clip-on Luggage System
With the award winning PakRak clip-on bicycle luggage system you'll have no need for cumbersome straps or bungee cords. Nothing is easier, more convenient or secure than the PakRak integrated system. Just clip a PakRak bag to a PakRak carrier and ride. Ibera has a variety of bags, panniers and compatible carriers.

What is the advantage of the PakRak clip-on system?
With the simple press of a button (or lever, in the case of panniers) you can attach or detach a PakRak bag to a bicycle carrier. This is a faster, neater, and more convenient solution than strapping bags to a carrier. 

The PakRak Family Introduction
PakRak clip-on bags come in 3 configurations: 

1. PakRak MultiMount Bags
Clip-on trunk bags for weekend bike outings, and commuting to work or school. 

Rack Compatibility Most brands of carriers (seatpost-mounted and frame-mounted), by way of a supplied interface adaptor.

Mounting System Attached to carrier top. Button Lock clip-on mechanism. 

2. PakRak Bags
Clip-on trunk bags for weekend bike outings, and commuting to work or school. 

Rack Compatibility All PakRak carriers (seatpost-mounted and frame-mounted). 

Mounting System Attached to carrier top. Button Lock clip-on mechanism.

3. PakRak Panniers
Large clip-on twin bag sets for touring.

Rack Compatibility PakRak touring carriers, and most other brands of touring carriers.

Mounting System Attached to carrier sides. Lever Lock clip-on mechanism.

I already have a carrier on my bike can I just buy a PakRak bag and clip it on?
The clip-on system requires both a PakRak bag and a PakRak carrier. You will need to purchase a PakRak MultiMount Bag, which comes with an adaptor that can be retro-fitted to other carriers.

Can I strap conventional bags, boxes or other luggage to a PakRak carrier?
Yes, you can carry anything that you can carry on a conventional carrier by tying it on. Just do not exceed the carrier’s maximum weight limit, or allow anything you carry to dangle or get in the wheels or drivetrain.

Do PakRak panniers use the same clip-on mounting system as PakRak bags?
No. PakRak panniers clip-on, but Ibera uses a different clip-on system for panniers.

Can I use PakRak panniers on other third-party carriers (non-PakRak)?
Yes, you can. They are compatible with PakRak touring carriers (frame-mounted), AND most other brands of touring carriers.

Can I use panniers on seatpost-mounted carriers?
No, you need a touring (frame-mounted) carrier.

How do I install a PakRak carrier?
The PakRak carrier is installed in exactly the same way as any other carrier. There are two basic types: frame-mounting, and seatpost mounting. Read the instructions that came with your carrier. For frame-mounting carriers you can also watch thivideo.

How do you mount a touring carrier on a bike frame without mounting holes?
Most people use fasteners like loop clamps, available at many bike stores and hardware stores. Use coated or cushioned loops so as not to scratch your frame. Ibera does not supply these. More info & photos

If you have yet to buy a carrier, you can consider a seatpost-mounted carrier. Seatpost carriers however are only suitable for fairly light, top carried loads. They are not suitable for carrying panniers. 

When I try to install my new seatpost carrier it is too loose (or too tight) on the seatpost?
Your carrier is compatible with seatposts with a diameter range from 27.2 – 34 mm. Insert one or both of the supplied rubber sizing shims to achieve a tight, secure fit. 

Why did my PakRak bag fall off my carrier?
Under normal riding conditions this should not happen. Possibly your bag was not clipped on correctly. The rear clip must fully engage with the 'lip' of the carrier. That means that once clipped in, the latch button must be fully out (flush with button recess). When engaging, push down on rear of bag. IMPORTANT Always make sure bag is attached securely to carrier before use. Refer to the instructions that came with your PakRak products.

The release button on my PakRak bag is running rough, (or dirty or stuck)?
Probably grime or dirt is wedged between the button and its recess. Push the button in and release several times. If this does not fix the problem, place the bag under a tap (water faucet) and trickle water on the button area while pushing and releasing button until the button operates smoothly. Shake the bag vigorously to remove excess water, then dry it with a cloth.

How to Clean and Service the PakRak Release Button
If the button on your PakRak bag is running rough, is dirty or stuck, follow these simple steps by clicking on the images.

1. If the PakRak button is running rough, dirty or stuck …
2. Trickle water on button area while pushing and releasing button.
3. Now it should be clean and smooth running.

How do I clean my bag?
Clean inside or outside by wiping or rubbing with a cloth that has been dipped into warm, mildly soapy water. Leave to air dry away from direct sunlight.

One of the the small orange rings on the rear of my carrier fell off or broke?
These rings are purely cosmetic, and have no effect on function.

Phone Cases

About Phone Cases
A phone case allows you to take full advantage of the great cycling apps available for your phone. The Ibera phone case allows full access to screen and buttons even while cycling. Cases mount on stem or handlebars. 

Which Ibera case fits my XXXX phone?
There are hundreds of phones available: phones vary from country to country, and models are coming on and off the market all the time. Sorry, apart from the iPhone, we cannot give you specific phone case compatibility information. What we can give you is the maximum dimensions of a phone that an ibera case will hold. 

First, determine the dimensions of your phone by checking the user manual, the company's website, or by measuring it yourself. 

Then, check our Phone page for individual case holding dimensions, or our Phone Case Comparison Chart. Keep in mind that these dimensions are a guide only – Ibera cases are not rigid, and in many instances a phone that is somewhat smaller than our given dimensions may still fit quite snuggly inside the case.

And you can always visit an Ibera retailer to trial fit your phone before you buy.

Can I carry my phone in landscape mode?
Yes, all current Ibera phone cases can be used in portrait or landscape mode.

Do you have waterproof cases?
Yes, we have waterproof models. 

Are waterproof phone cases 100% waterproof?
Generally yes, but there are limitations for some models. Refer to the instructions that came with your product.

What is the difference between the StemClamp and the BarClamp?
The StemClamp mounts on the bicycle stem. The BarClamp mounts on the bicycle handlebars and is also capable of carrying other items as well as your phone. 

What other items can the BarClamp carry?
That depends on the model/configuration of the product. Once you have chosen a phone case, you can select from 2 BarClamp configurations: 

Bar-mounted Phone Case (Models: Q1, Q4, Q5)
Included: Case + Bottle cage mount
Mounting options: Cage & bottle (not supplied).

Bar-mounted Phone Case & MiniBar (Models: Q2, Q6)
Carry phone & bike accessories on handlebars.
Included: Case + Minibar
Mounting options: Headlight, bike computer, bell etc. (not supplied).

What is the Minibar?
The Minibar is part of the Q2 BarClamp mount. It is the ideal choice for cyclists who have run out of handlebar space yet still need to attach an accessory. The Minibar is a short extension bar (22.2 dia.) that allows you to attach a headlight, a bike computer, or bell etc.

The clamp is too small; I can't fit it on my handlebars?
The adjustable clamp is designed to fit most common handlebars from ∅ 22.2 to 31.8 mm.

The clamp has two sets of pin holes for smaller or larger diameter handlebars. Default position suits most bars – to change setting, pull pin out with pliers, or push out with Allen key. Push pin into lower holes. Use supplied sizing pads for further adjustment if necessary.

Refer to the instructions that came with your product.

Can I use Ibera Phone cases for off-road riding?
Ibera phone cases and bike mounts are quite tough but they are not designed for off-road use or rough riding, and neither, perhaps, is your expensive phone.

Warning for users of Ibera Q5, Q6 StemClamp (spring-loaded phone case clamp).
Do not apply downward force to case. Refer to the instructions that came with your product.

Can I use Ibera phone cases on a motorcycle?

Yes, you can if you have the BarClamp mount but we don't recommend it. You can attach it to anything that has handlebars or some other kind of round bar with a diameter between 22.2 mm–31.8 mm: bicycles, exercise bikes, baby strollers … etc. But beware, BarClamp may not withstand the vibration of motorised vehicles such as motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, and you will void your warranty.

Clip-on Handlebar Bags

About Handlebar Bags
With Ibera clip-on handlebar bags you can have your phone, camera, wallet, even a jacket, secure and within easy reach right in front of you when you ride. To remove the bag and carry it with you, or to ride without it, simply press the release button.

The clamp is too small; I can't fit it on my handlebars?
The adjustable clamp is designed to fit most common handlebars from ∅ 22.2 to 31.8 mm.

With 4 mm Allen key undo bolts. Remove bolts and washers. Clamp arms have two sets of matching pin holes for smaller or larger diameter handlebars – default position suits most bars. To change setting, push pins out with 3 mm Allen key. Reinsert pin into lower holes.

Warning 
Do not use for off-road riding.
Detach shoulder strap when riding.

Top Tube Bags

About Top Tube Bags
Top Tube Bags offer easy access to energy bars, gels or snacks on the fly. Carry most of what you need for fine weather bike trips including your wallet, keys, sunscreen etc.

Seat Bags

About Seat Bags
Stylish under-saddle bags for all kinds of bikes: road, MTB and folding. Ideal for carrying tools, a spare tube, CO2 cartridges and other personal items.

Are seat bags the same as saddle bags?
Yes, same thing. A bicycle seat is often referred to as a saddle. However because the word 'saddle' brings to mind a horse saddle, we prefer to call them seat bags to avoid confusion with bicycle panniers, which actually are very similar to horse saddle bags.

Do your seat bags clip-on?
Some of our bags use a combination of a clip and strap. Others just use straps.

How do I choose a seat bag?
For most people the main question is capacity. How much stuff do you want to carry in the bag? Will you be carrying everything you need in it, or will you carry some things in a jersey pocket or another bag? The next factor is whether you want the clip and strap type, or a strap on bag. There is no functional difference except the former is slightly easier to detach.

Bicycle Bags

About Bicycle Bags
With minimum disassembly, a bicycle bag allows you to carry your bike on trains and buses. When it's time to ride, the bike bag folds neatly into its own carry case and can be attached to the bike handlebars.

Water Bottles

Washing Bottles
Ibera bottles have a wide mouth so cleaning is simple. After each use, wash the inside of the bottle thoroughly with a bottle brush, warm water and dish detergent. Clean the inside and outside of the cap. To clean the inside of the spout, squirt soapy water through it. Rinse bottle well, and drain to air-dry. Bottles can also be washed in a dishwasher at low temperatures.

To minimise the buildup of bacteria, it is best to wash bottles immediately after use. If a bottle has been left for a period of time after use without cleaning, you may need to soak it in warm water first before washing. Add a teaspoon of bleach to kill bacteria. If using bottle for liquids other than water, pay particular attention to cleaning.

Are bottles dishwasher safe?
Yes, bottles are safe in the dishwasher at low temperatures.

Storing Bottles
To prevent mould, store bottles with the spout open. Always wash before using.

Bottle Cages

About Bottle Cages
Bottle cages (along with bottles) are an essential part of staying hydrated when cycling. Ibera makes a range of cages and cup holders.



Adjustable Bottle Cages

Adjustable Bottle Cages allow you to carry bicycle bottles or smaller non-standard bottles.

Diameter Adjustment Range:

Models:
IB-BC17 60–73 mm
IB-BC4 63–73 mm

Will the cage hold a soft drink or juice bottle?
Yes, but it depends on the size and shape of the bottle. Bear in mind it may not be as secure in the cage as a bicycle bottle.

I cannot fit my bike bottle in the cage?
If you have a standard diameter bike bottle (73 mm), turn the adjustment dial to open it fully.

Can I carry coffee in a disposable cup?
Yes, probably, it depends on the size and shape of the cup, but it may not be very secure in the cage so you do not want to ride on rough roads!

Warning
Do not use for off-road riding or stunt jumping.



CupClamp

Can I put my water bottle in CupClamp?
No, it is not designed for bottles of any kind.

The clamp is too small; I can't fit it on my handlebars?
The adjustable clamp is designed to fit most common handlebars from ∅ 22.2 to 31.8 mm.

The clamp has two sets of pin holes for smaller or larger diameter handlebars. Default position suits most bars – to change setting, pull pin out with pliers, or push out with Allen key. Push pin into lower holes. Use supplied sizing pads for further adjustment if necessary.

Refer to the instructions that came with your product.

Warning
1. Use only tapered cups (wider at top than bottom).
2. Do not use disposable cups.
3. Do not use for off-road, or rough road riding.
4. Appropriate care should be taken with hot drinks.
5. Ensure cup lid is secure before using.

Bike Stands

About Removable Bike Stands
Ibera removable bike stands are designed especially for high-end bike riders. They have the functionality of a kickstand without the weight and clunkiness. The compact, portable stand attaches or detaches instantly to a bike's rear wheel quick release, providing stability anywhere.

What size bikes can use the bike stands?
It is for 26" and 700 C wheel size bikes only.

The rubber O ring on the connecting joint of my stand is broken? (IB-ST6 carbon fibre model only)
The O ring is a non-essential part; the product is completely functional without it. However, the fit between the two connecting legs will be slightly looser. If you want to replace the O ring, try your local hardware store.

Maintenance Tip (IB-ST7 only)
If not using stand for an extended time, store it unfolded to preserve bungee cord elasticity.

Warning
1. This product is not a kickstand–do not kick or otherwise turn or twist. When not in use it is detached from the bicycle.
2. This product is only compatible with 5 mm diameter quick release skewers (most skewers use 5 mm).
