- Dropper post seat bag/strap
I have a Louri frame strap with a tube and co2 canisters but with the Trek frame once a bottle is on space is a little limited. I have it on the top of top tube against the seat post at the moment which seems ok.
Was thinking of maybe trying it on the rails of the saddle but the straps are too long and it doesn’t really work! Although the post still returns at pace so it seems the extra weight is no issue.
I know Louri do a saddle version but slight concern of how muddy it will get. I mean that’s not a huge issue I guess!
Are there alternatives for a 29er wheel that are not huge and work well with a dropper?
Saw the weecog one at £30 but not sure if it’s a better option than just a strap.
Anyone using a strap or bag on the dropper?Posted 3 months agorichardkennerleySubscriber
I’ve got the weecog one. It does what it’s supposed to do, but I’ve recently noticed its worn the anodising on the post where it rubs when the seat is dropped (not the stanchion, the “collar” at the top of the post where it says reverb.) Doesn’t bother me but it might upset someone!Posted 3 months agospacehopperSubscriber
i use a little Deuter bag on my hardtail with a dropper..
The straps keep it tucked right into the saddle so it doesnt poke out too much.. it used to work on my 26″ full suss but the new 27.5 contacts it at full travelwith the saddle dropped fully.. (small sized frame)
i use one of these style clamps.. (picked up a few on ebay for pennies) and chop off the protruding piece the correct saddle bag is supposed to clip on to.. so its basically just a ‘bar’ between the saddle rails..
this stops the saddle bag strap sliding forward too much and keeps it away from the dropper post and means it doesnt wear the post out..
why not use the just use a clip on bag?!
I find they stick out way too much.. and so look even gawkier.. and it also means its even closer to the tyre when the saddle is fully dropped… 🙂Posted 3 months ago
