I've taken a punt. I was going to buy a full frame bag from them but they won't do dividers or additional pockets which is a pity.
Thanks for the shout on these. Got mine today. They even threw in the zip ties to attach to my bagman which i asked for, which is nice of them.
Seems to be made by Marpeneta so thanks to them.
Which colour? Jealous

Apidura to me have somewhat missed the mark with their latest Racing series...
Just got the light carradice audax @amey posted about. Perfect size for fitting between dirtdrop handlebars, fits bivvy, sleeping bag, down jacket and a rain jacket with a bit of squeezing. Pretty happy.
Only shame the bright lining is only on the rim rather than inside the whole bag.
What width is your bar?
genetic digest 44cm
Really like these, looks great on the front like that.
If i wanted to switch the bars on my steamroller from my current easton monkey bar risers to something a bit more bikepacking friendly what are the consensus options?
would prefer to stick with riser bar position with single front rim brake/lever.
and what bag to pair with it? my hammock camping gear for winter is pretty bulky due to thick down under/top quilts so looking for something with plenty of space.
planned use would probably be cycle route style rides nothing too major
For bulky light stuff a harness/holster with corresponding drybag will be best. Made by revelate, restrap, wildcatgear and probably lots of others.
those kind of bars are what i was thinking of as have seen them knocking around on a few threads, cheers.
does anyone know how well they work with something like a Revelate sweetroll?
genetic digest 44cm
Excellent, 46cm bar work just as well.
Might stitch out the side pocket tho.
Weird. I’m sure they would, if you paid. Perhaps it’s hassle. But they can do it!
I emailed and asked and they said no. I don’t have the same sway as you do!
@cjr Restrap were doing custom dividers but had issues with people changing their mind at the last minute/after production had started/finished so stopped doing them. Plan is hopefully to introduce some standard divider options some time in the future.
Emailed them. Due to to unforeseen circumstances they cannot produce custom frame bags at this time.
I’ve actually got something in the works from a friend and I also found Straight Cut Dedign which is a guy based in Edinburgh. Not cheap, but will do a fully custom bag including direct mounting onto bottle bosses.
So santa is bringing me a revelate viscacha and sweetroll for christmas, I just bought a set of the alpkit confucius bars and have been fitting them this eve in anticipation.
if I want to fit lights and stuff to the loop part of the bars i will need adaptors of some sort as my mounts are all 31.8, anyone know of any generic shim type things i can throw on there or have any suggestions for better mount options?
Old inner tube, electrical tape, rubber spacers from other lights.
I need a cheap largeish frame bag and there 2 options at planet X for under £30. Anyone used them?
There's a Woho which I think is an AliExpress job and a Vincinta which is big.
Any opinions on them?
Maybe some of the Minoura space mounts
This seems like quite a good deal. Anybody on here who owns one?
