  • The one downside of the slim is the lack of external pockets which I occasionally miss. It's a good bag though.

  • Minimal support / way of keeping the saddle bag off your brake here

  • Found another use for the cliplight mount:

  • Just a reminder that the ones with a logo plate like yours work really well with the clip light attached to that instead of the nylon strap - much more secure and on my bikes, a much better angle.

  • My new SQR Slim is made by Emma

  • My many year old Nelson Longflap is still a beauty and made by Janet, coincidentally the name of my OH!

  • Good tip, thanks!

  • Got a bagman for my (very old) Carradice the other day.

    No name inside :( I think you'd call it a Cadet going by measurements, but there's no mention of that anywhere either.

  • Nice, approximate year purchased?

  • I have absolutely no idea! I'll have to ask my Grandad who's passed down the bag (and the Hetchins attached to it) to me.

  • Kind of looks like a 70s font, they can sometimes be dated if you look at the actual address that's sewn onto the bag (if it's still there) - always in Nelson, but moved to different streets over the years.

  • Had a look, it says
    "Carradice of Nelson
    Nelson Lancs England"

  • In that case, according to the site below, it was made in 1983 or later.

  • Thanks :D, That sounds about the right age since all the parts on the frame (1938) are from the mid 80's except the bagman, saddle, and mudguards.

  • camper longflap here, almost two years old. Commuting twice a week. Carrying a laptop so heavy usage.

  • I have an Original Roll, currently being used as a handlebar bag. What's the best way of making it more rigid, anything I can put inside?

  • I've used coroplast (plastic cardboard) on an old Camper to protect the fender.
    Just cut a piece to fit 'round the interior or you can bolt right through it if you're careful and use rubber washers for waterproof integrity.

  • Cheers, will have a look at that.

  • In my part of the world it can be found for free as it's used a lot in political and real estate signage.

  • Is there a variety of Carradice saddlebag that would hold a laptop (13” mbp) for commuting?

    I am new to this.

  • I use a carradice camper longflap (with qr system) for a 15" laptop.

    An sqr slim was advised by Margaret but I liked the camper more.

  • Thanks so much! I like the look of the long-flap.

    I’ll try and take a look at one in Condor this evening.
