5 Frame Bags For More Than Just Snacks

by 5

Amanda has been pootling around town with various frame bag solutions to see what shape and size work best. Here’s a few of the best on test! I have gradually evolved from a rider that doesn’t believe anyone needs a frame bag, to a rider that almost always has some form of storage attached to my bike. Discovering new bike disciplines, longer days out and really understanding the need to snack often has made me appreciate easy access packs that I can get my hungry paw in whilst moving. I have previously tested some small options, and since then I have gone as far as camping on Helvellyn on an enduro bike, so I’ve tried lots of shapes, sizes, and materials of frame bag. Below are the ones that never make it to the back of the shelf. Wizard Works Lil Presto!

    I have the restrap bar bag and had the same issue with the buckles. I contacted Restrap and they were very
    helpful and informed me that the buckles needed respositing on the strap so they sit flat against the bars. This makes it a lot easier to use.

    I do agree that the bag would be even better if the straps weren’t sewn in place and could be moved to different positions.

    Other than that it’s been great.

    Have you tried the Lifeline seat pack on a dropper post, it’s only got a single post strap so might work well, if it does it’s an absolute bargain
