  • I was going to say because it is is bulky under the saddle but I’m getting confused with ortlieb mounting, the Carradice bagman looks rather tidy in fact. I suppose a bar/saddle bag trumps a frame bag if I need to take it off if locking up bicycle etc but at the minute a frame bag is seeming like the simpler and cheaper choice if I take into account a support.

  • I wouldn't bother with a quick release myself unless there's a concern about the bag itself being taken. All my Carradice bags travel with a shopping bag inside that I take with me when I lock up.
