Bought a Sue Super C Bar Bag from the factory shop on eBay. Supposedly one of the buckles is a bit wonky, but I don't see it. The only minor annoyance is that the map case is only big enough for a single fold of an OS map; if you use a double fold, it doesn't attach to the top properly. Suspect it could be bodged with extra webbing, so will investigate.

I got one of those speedy stitcher things from amazon? Nice low tech portable way to attach webbing patches etc to things. I use it all the time now.
Yep, saves wear and tear on the hands too.
Where does one fint the name?
Should be signed on the product label inside.
Thanks, I'll double check mine when I get home
Spotted this on the gram today...seems to be well designed and built by nitto too.
That's good. The carradice version is frustrating in potentially forcing a change in saddle setback, this seems a neat solution.
After a bit of research it's available at tokyobike bit pricey sadly
Thinking of buying a 9l Audax Bag just for daily rides. typically to carry a pump, tubes, couple tools, a warm layer and a few snacks and what other crap I can ride with. Will most likely try and mount it without a support for now. Change my mind...
Get a support, they aren't the most rigid of bags.
QR support is worth every penny IMO
Or get a frame bag if you're riding big enough frames to fit all this.
Have the support on mine but only use it for tours, daily commuting i use the qr without the support.
After a few folk asked about my Rixen & Kaul mod, I took some pics of my Carradice and put them in my story highlights on Instagram.
Is there a cheap support available? Bit picky about the quick release. Alternatively , I could use a front canti rack and mount to bars maybe ? This would depend on height of bars etc though.
Frame bag isn’t a bad shout actually.
I've had the Audax as a front bag, sat on a nitto M18 rack, velcro loops round the bars, it works, still saggy though (unless stuffed full). You could always put a piece of HDPE sheet in the bottom. Frame bag is a good shout.

My Barley (which is effectively the same bag as the Audax) was fine without a support, though I did put an A4 sheet of correx in the bottom of it to stiffen it up. I eventually switched to a Carradice Classic Rack support for the QR functionality; on my tourer I have a Camper Longflap with the QR clamp (no support) - the bag rests on my rear rack.
Not a lot of love for the SQR system in this parish for some reason. Is it because it's a bit unsightly?
Oh I do like my SQR + bagman. It’s pretty heavy though. The carradice bag itself isn’t exactly a lightweight either. I don’t mind the heft if I’m carrying loads of things but for a day’s ride a framebag seems a bit more nimble if that makes sense.
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.
SQR is also super handy for daily duties that’s right. Takes a lock and essentials, then lock up and take it and go to the pub/shop/wherever. Though I haven’t shied away from leaving a framebag on a locked bike on some occasions.
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.
