Seatpacks – Whats on the in crowd's bikes??
I have one of these and am pleased with it.
different sizes are available. Has internal pockets to store tools etc and stop rattles and has been waterproof to date.
only issue I had was that the zip pulls rattled which was a pain on my road bike so I’ve removed them.Posted 4 years agomosSubscriber
I was gonna get that new specialized swat system instead of a seat pack, then i just googled it & saw the price. £100 FFS!!Posted 4 years ago
Get one with straps, not qd brackets:
I’ve broken two clips in crashes, Mrs S has broke one.
You can get spares for Topeak, but not Bontrager, so we’ve just had to bin a year old, otherwise excellent Bontrager seat pack. 😐
I like the Topeak Wedge Packs – prefer the Aero ones that open at the end, rather than the regular version which has a horizontal zip.Posted 4 years agoflangeSubscriber
I’ve had two of the Lezyne ones and both have ended up swinging around the bottom of the seat post when the velcro failed. I’ve got the Fizik one that plugs into the back of the saddle now and it seems pretty good. However, you obviously need a Fizik saddle for this to work.Posted 4 years agogringojimiMember
Have had a few Lezyne ones and they all suffered from the zips failing.
Got new ones after moaning to the distributor, only for them to fail the same way.
Five year old Topeak still going strong. And those Fizik bags are nice if you have a compatible saddle as they don’t rub against your seatpost.Posted 4 years agopondoMember
My hybrid has one of these –Posted 4 years ago
Can JUST squeeze a couple of tubes, levers and patches in there, no room for anything else.
Mountain bike has one of these –
Couple of tubes, set of levers, patches and a multi tool. Came with a cover too, which is handy for keeping the worst of the gloop out.
Road bike has something like this –
Couple of tubes, levers, phone, keys, patches, couple of CO2 canisters and inflator. I don’t have shares in Topeak but the first bag was fine, so it made sense to get the rest with the same mounting system in case I had a need to swap them between bikes. Nothing broken yet, touch wood, and no creaks that I’ve noticed.
