    Ideas for a handlebar goggle holder

    I only use my goggles when it rains, or when there is plenty of mosquitoes. But where to store the goggles, so that I can access them within seconds when needef?

    I have a 3D printer and I can draft prototypes with AutoCad, hence I could make some sleek handlebar contraption that holds the goggles firmly. In principle.

    What I lack, however, is a clever design idea. Can you help me? A hand-drawn sketch, photographed and uploaded, would suffice. In return, I will publish the 3D blueprint (the *.stl file) so that everybody who wishes will be able to print it (or have it printed by a shop).

    I think it's called a frame top bag, though it may take you up to 20 secs to unzip and access the goggles.
    What a perfect waste of time

    I have something like a frame top bag, and it's no good for this purpose. I do not want to have to unzip stuff while riding. Maybe I will simply use a chinese hard-shell glass cover (e.g. rockbros, $3) and attach it to the handlebars with a headlight clip or something.

    A feed bag or magnetic clip top tube bag would work. I eat out of them whole riding.

    I have discovered that anything mounted on my handlebar is eventually broken. This includes brake levers and shift levers, too. So there's a good argument for a top tube/gas tank bag.
    Practically speaking, if the goggles are not in an enclosed compartment, they will accumulate trail dirt, bugs (alive and dead), mud splatter, water, sweat, snot, and probably samples of the local flora - both on the outside and the inside - rendering them useless.

    It's never easier - you just go faster.

    Thatís why God gave you a neck. Goggle storage at its finest.
