    Backcountry Research – Super 8 Top Tube Mount

    Seems their whole range is out of stock as my op mentioned so is the muthaload…

    I have been looking at the race face stash strap lately, but can’t find anywhere with any stock, seems perfect for what I’m after (packless summer evening rides) I have also seen the backcountry motherload strap, but again out of stock. Anyone aware of any other strap style systems to attach a tube, basic tools co2 to a frame please? Or anywhere with stock of the stash strap?

    Thanks in advance

    The Mutherload is very good. Can you order it dlrect?

    No you can’t they are out of stock on backcountrys own website….kind of why I’m looking for alternatives really. None of the backcountry or Stash strap products are in stock anywhere, so wondered if there were other options?

    Daft question but why not jersey pockets or saddle pack?

    Saddle pack crap with droppers
    Jersey pockets means wearing a jersey with pockets and the bouncing around on a mtb is crap?

    Hadn’t thought of the first point due to 27.2 seatpost on my bike and resulting lack of dropper.

    Can’t say I’ve had a problem with bouncing around.

    Length of velcro £4 from B&Q, not had any issues using that. 😀

    Thing is Velcro won’t hold the co2, levers etc. I may have a go at making something myself.

    As for jerseys etc, i don’t like having all that stuff bouncing away, plus I don’t use jereseys with pockets…. hence the strap idea works for me, just trying to find a neater solution to tape

    Google for velcro strap and buckle.

    As above rickos, a Velcro strap won’t hold the tools etc securely like the stash straps. Else I would of spent a coupe of quid on one

    Assuming that you’re using a bottle then The Piggy by 76 Projects will designed to do what you’re looking for. The Piggy

    Have you considered a wee saddle roll/bag..?

    Lezyene Road Caddy might be a goer with a dropper too:

    The piggy looks like a spot on solution. I’ve often thought there is underutilised space below bottle cages. But £42.40, having a laugh!

    The piggy thing is great but I don’t have space to fit it on my Jeffsy…

    The weecog role looks great but I am really cautious with any kind of saddle mounted solution as if it in anyway contacts the dropper it’s going to likely cause a problem. Hence looking at the strap solutions.

    It does – or at least the super sticky stuff I steal from server cable management arms does.

    If I remember I’ll swap the Road Caddy onto the mtb and get some photos. Think it might clear the dropper collar, but only one way to find out….

    There is a very cheap-£3.50 – Decathlon seat bag that just attaches to saddle rails and works fine with both my bikes with droppers, no contact with moving parts.

    Is it big enough for a tube, multi tools, levers and Co2? Fog?

    I sometimes use a Weecog slider on a bike with a Reverb it doesn’t cause any problems.
    My current solution for camelbak-less summer riding is a Dakine Hotlaps bum bag. Enough room for essential tools and I can squeeze in a lightweight pertex jacket if it looks like rain. It also has a sleeve for a water bottle.

    Yep, I get a 29er tube, multi tool and levers in. Don’t use Co2 but I would think there is room.

    Bar Fly Hopper is a reasonable alternative to the Backcountry Research straps – sigmasport had some in stock

    Velcro strap WITH A BUCKLE will do what you need, but if you’ve now moved onto saddle bags, then have a look on Chain Reaction. There’s suitable bags from Dhb, Cube and Topeak on there. Mount on the saddle rails, don’t interfere with dropper post and can be had big enough for tube, multitool, etc. Mini pump on one of those bottle mount clips and away you go.

    There’s looks like even more room when in the flesh. They’re around £12 (off Amazon) iirc so think I’ll probably grab another

    So will that fit a 29er tube, multitool, levers and co2 legend?

    Thanks for the photos.

    Think you’d struggle with an mtb tube. At the moment it’s just got a road tube and a Topeak 21 multi tool, there’s a little room left but not much. I’m just thinking of getting a multi-tool, tubeless repair kit and a tyre boot in it

    Couple of packing photos via teh Google

    Had issues with a WeeCog Slider at full compression with the seat down. Switched to an Alpkit Enduro Pod. Tube, CO2, multitool and levers. Fits nicely under my shock.

    I used to have a frame triangle bag back in the day on my first muddy fox. Used to call it a sandwich bag for some reason. Rubbish for storing stuff though really and it wouldn’t fit my GT with the triple triangle….

    Anyway back to enduro straps etc

    Cosmic trail lol now I feel old

    Ive been useing the larger lezyne roll caddy thing and it’s clears my Spesh command post nicely

    Ortlieb mini pack, clips onto the saddle rails and doesn’t touch the seat post at all, I have the mounting brackets on both MTBs and just swap the pack between them. Plenty of space inside.

    I like the look of that piggy, but what happens when you use the tube? Will the strap work if you’re just left with the tool and tyre levers I wonder?
