  • The SQR and the QR Bagman are 2 different mounting systems:

  • Oh I see, my bad. I do like my QR bagman then.

  • I've got a bagman qr with the extra support rods that bolt on to the frame. I found that the bagman by itself would flex too much with a loaded camper longflap. the support rods are great, no more flex. I usually clip on a shoulder strap and take the bag with me when i do groceries on trips.

  • I've got a Glentress which is an SQR carradice which holds about 5 litres. Perfect commuting size, it's a shame they discontinued it.

  • +1 for Sue. I bought a Super C saddlebag years ago for the canti-mount front rack on my commuter / baby-hauler, but I never quite got the mounting right. Now on the seatpost with an SQR mount, and it is far better.

  • Before I order, what is the difference between these two bags ?

    Just the material ? And if so, which do I go with?

  • Cordura is lighter and stronger but cotton duck is natural and sustainable.

  • Cordura might be initially stronger but you get a rip in that and it will unravel much sooner than cotton.

  • True, that ^

  • Have gone with the quick release support and Super C Audax from spa cycles. 200g extra weight won't make a difference on an already heavy bike and @withered_preacher raises a fair point about cordura. I think £96 posted for both items seems fair for something that should last me a couple of decades.

  • Let us know how you get on. We have a few of them, two of which are over 25 years old (I know that's nowhere near as long as what some here and elsewhere may have).

  • Quick release looks very hand indeed. Will fill it with crap and ride it today.

  • Been thinking about a front mount for my Carradice Audax and Nelson for a while now. I tried something and thought I should share.

    I think this is the simplest I've seen off this thread.

    First pic shows the bracket dropping under the top tube and was my initial idea.
    Second pic is what I refined the bracket down too. Way way cleaner.
    Third pic is the bracket removed from the bag which you do by just squeezing the bracket together.

    I guess if anyone has a Thomson stem and a similar setup should just work fine!.

    ...waits for the round of applause and back slaps.

    What is the bracket made from? I want to do something similar with my carradice (barley I think)

  • I reckon its 3mm Stainless steel rod.
    I cut my bit off a broken mudguard.
    You only need a 200mm-300mm length piece.

    Hacksaw and 2 pliers. I taped the rod so I could mark with a pen where I wanted to bend it.

  • Thats with my pendle on the front. Note you need this too...

  • its cool

    and the plastic attachment on the bag is from the bagman qr?

  • @Shinscar top work fella!

  • yes it is - just saw yr reply

  • Guess I could squeeze a cable frame protector on the rod to stop scratches to the underside of stem.
