Just ordered one of these with carbon rails to go with my Ti bike.. I've been riding for years with ICS clip equipped fizik saddles (which uses their clip on saddlebags) ..

For short rides I usually just stuff my multitool, cO2, levers, patches and spare tube in a spare bottle, but for longer rides I'm looking at something fairly minimal and classy that won't look out of place on this setup.

Rapha saddle bag small
Looks great, very compact but fits a small pump such as Lezyne pocket drive or Topeak micro rocket
Holds very securely too

Silca Seat Roll Premio doesn't look bad, IMO. And you can secure it tight so that it doesn't budge at all. And I just want to say, the saddle in that color, on the right bike, is going to look FANTASTIC. Bravo.

There are a bunch of minimlist bags, but maybe
1) tape a Tubolito / Schwalbe Athelon tube to the saddle, put the rest in a jersey bag.
2) maybe mount one of these under your bottle https://www.dakine.com/collections/bike ... 9067208784 (if you're bike is painted/polished, put vinyl tape on the contact points.)

Silca does not work with all saddle types well. E.g. with Pro stealth it slips all the time from its ratcheting strap and hangs on the rails.

It might work ok if that type of saddle is set all the way back in the clamp, otherwise it does not provide enough room to angle properly.

I like the idea of the boa system and it DOES look classy. hmmm, 108g isn't terrible. Yeah that saddle is for my lynskey rebuild. heavy thomson stem/seatpost (because i wanted the polished black finish to match DA 9100). I wasn't a fan of the prologo tape so I'll either be going with lizardskin dsp v2 in the earth tone color, OR the antique brown brooks microfiber bar tape. The whole (re)build is essentially titanium, with polished black alloy hardware, dark brown on anything that touches the body, with a hint of carbon (if you can call enve 3.4 a hint)

i was KIND OF considering the specialized road bandit, but I don't like the idea of an exposed tube that would fail the moment i need it

Lezyne Micro Caddy. This had become the default seatbag for most of the people I ride with.

I have the Blackburn Grid in small, using only the velcro around the rails. Pretty minimalistic and as a plus, reflective if it gets late. Quite affordable, too.

BBB Curvepack.
No more velcro attchments for since i ruined a pair of bibshorts (very slightly touching the velcro).
BBB has a solid attachment to the rail and a neat rubber attachment round the seatpost.

^Another option without velcros is the Orucase SB25.
