That's why on LES I installed the brakes reversed on the bars.
Fantastic bike!! I love it... Makes me want to keep LES for the sake of it!
Been a bit of an odd journey for this bike over the last year. From this
To this. Less hip hop slave bike, more old man steez bike.
Using it for commuting and general winter miles.
Latest addition is the Ortlieb Rack Pack with Carradice Bagman QR
Next on the list is a frame pump then maybe a custom twin plate crown fork. Something like a Gangsta V1 fork I think.
Get the Zefal Classic HPX, none better than that.
^^ That looks more like a full size duffle than a rack bag, says the Camper Longflap owner.
Yeah, I looked at the Zefal but I can get the Topeak MasterBlaster at trade and it gets pretty good reviews.
You mean that's not a duffle bag?
Smallest size they do for the Rack Pack but I think the larger one's are aimed more at motorcycle touring.
The motorcycle fits inside.
Finally got this finished and took some photos of it the other day - check out my CP thread for more photos, details etc.
is it designed to fit the Bagman or did you have to modify it?
Any thoughts on the Jagwire Pro Road XL cable set? Seems to have a decent length of compressionless brake outer. Can't find many meaningful reviews however.
I think @edscoble has used it? I was going to get some but then couldn't be bothered.
Built geoff up again.
Go for it, just follow the instruction and you'll be fine.
There's a kind of loop each side where the handle is attached to the bag. Just put a 10mm od alloy tube through there and cable tied the bagman attachment to it. I put some black heat shrink and end caps on the tube to try and make it tidy. All in about £6 for the bits on ebay.
Just ordered some, ta
Here's a better pic
I thought Archway, but the paint says Tufnell Park. Nice build btw.
I need this in black. Everywhere seems to be out of stock though.
Nice, I want to get a setup something like that. I've been avoiding Carradice because all the bags come with leather straps (I'm a fussy vegan)
Their SQR bag would be idea for you, if you don't mind duckS being killed for their cotton.
I was looking for something a little bigger than that. I'm tempted by the
Super C Saddlebag as it doesnt appear to have any leather on it.
They still come with a couple of detachable leather fastening straps for the saddle loops
Ah good to know, I thought they might but I couldnt find a clear answer on the website, that's why I was interested in the Ortlieb.
