Hi all,

Just thought I'd add my input to this topic. As a non-fan of saddle bags, I took a gamble on this recently, and after being delivered at the weekend, fitted it (bit fiddly - but not difficult), tested it on my usual Sunday ride (horrible rain).

So far all is good. I like the low profile design and sleek angles when fitted to the underside of the saddle, doesn't rattle, keeps all contents dry, won't rot or get easily affected by weather conditions.

I managed to get two tyre levers (came with the kit!), a mini tool, one tube, a co2 canister and some money. Pretty much all I need for most rides.

Pretty happy so far. Will update weights etc later.

This one I think is the slickest! 27g and nice touch with the Cateye Safety light compatibility.

Looks like we have the same taste in bags and bikes :D

It would be great to know whether it is possible to squeeze a tube in there.

I carry my CO2 on a Genuine Innovations cartridge cross and if this held the tube it would be a neat setup!

What is the smallest/lowest volume saddlebag you guys have come across?

I've used the Arundel Uno and Scicon Elan but both are slightly bigger than I actually need them to, so are never quite full.


I like the Xerpa XP1 design, but it would need to hold a tube and not just a CO2 cartridge.
However given the distance between the saddle rails I doubt, that a tube can be squeezed in there.

I think these are a great alternative to seat bags, which are heinous in most cases. Brand new company.

I use an mtb inner tube. Stuffs 2 co2 cartridges and some additional small stuff. Works like a charm, is cheap and does not add a lot of weight. ;)

Conti tube bag, anything bigger would be a no-go for me.

Supersonic tube, modified Conti tire levers, valve extender, Ritchey tool, 2.5 allen key, patches, sandpaper, glue, zip ties, 10€ bill for Haribo or patching sidewalls, rubber gloves. Pump goes in jersey pocket.


Same here. Simple, cheap, looks good, light, hassle free.

Anybody try one of these? They look really nice and I like the fact that there is a phone compartment too. A little bit pricey though at $50.

I really don't care putting sharp tools/keys in my jersey pockets, it's uncomfortable, unsafe in the event of crash and unpractical as I have to re-pack everything before every ride. I only use the jersey pockets for soft goods such as clothes and food.

But I bet somebody out there has a neat alternative to the ugly saddlebag?

If you're kitted full out in spandex, a saddlebag is the last eyesore for a passerby. A decent backpack or messenger bag should be good for any distance. A poor one packed with the worst choice of items is ok up to 200km.

I experimented with a Sticky Pod organizer this past summer. It was nice to have everything in one place but when loaded with a smart phone, single 700x18-23c butyl tube, CO2 cartridge, mini-tool, and a tire lever, the bag tended to be pretty bulky. Now pair that with a lightweight summer jersey such as the Castelli Free Aero or Entrata, and the added weight of the pouch pulled/stretched the jersey to far down in back. :o

From my perspective BiKase SuperBand is the minimalist solution for $20 http://www.trisports.com/bikase-superba ... -gear.html
