Some of you know that I sell electric hunting bikes. well I get asked pretty often to recommend a good bow holder that can go on the bike. Those few bow holders on the market mostly don't do a good job so I often recommend strapping the bow to the outside of the backpack so it doesn't bounce around.

What do you you guys do or have found to work that keeps the bow safe and strapped in so it doesn't rattle around and doesn't stick out and risk snagging on something?

Any tips or best practices so I can give the best possible advice would be awesome. thanks

Thanks for starting this thread. I just bought an ebike and have been wondering the best way to carry my bow. I am thinking about strapping it to my pack and wearing the pack, but would love to hear how others are doing it.

I like my Primos sling it’s shoulder strap let’s out plenty long enough to carry with your pack on. It’s also protects the cams.

The bow sling would not work great on a bike imho. Too loose and the bow would bounce all over the place. It is great when hiking.

For riding a bike, I'd secure that bow on the back of my pack and compression strap it so it can't come loose while riding.

Good luck!

Has any one crashed/tipped over, while carrying the bow strapped on the pack?

I take mine apart and carry it in a takedown case. Or in my hand.

Just buy a 20” Gearhead bow with the backpack problem solved.

I did a double Primos sling by sewing them together and putting in a stabilizer hole on the front one....

Good luck, Robb
