Any UK based alternatives to the Andrew the maker tube sacks??
Just to carry a tube and maybe some levers.
mack workshop does a strap if you don't want to ziptie or tape one in place
My goodness, you could literally use any kind of strap/rubber band to affix any kind of accessory bag/ taco wrap to your bike. I’ll make you one for $31, special price one day only.
What kind of dollars are we talking? US, AU, Mexico, Argentina???
That maker dude is charging $32 USD.
I'm in Canada.
Here's a How-To:
Is 420ml enough volume to comfortably rehydrate most dried meals? Looking at mugs to take on a trip
Normally takes around 400-450ml. When i bring my 400ml mug i just make sure to get a full boil and top up with some extra water from the bottle if needed.
Not seen these before - Wide foot cargo mounts
nice revelate front bag + pocket for a good price
Can someone please point me in the direction of a certain bicycle, I've seen it come up time to time on these pages...
It's a classic steel cyclocross frameset with cantilever brakes being used for bikepacking/touring - I'm sure it had a seatpack, frame bag, and little bar bag.
I have a couple of Gorilla cages I want to mount on my carbon forks to carry a sleep mat and cooking kit (so nothing heavy).
I don’t have the mounting clips so would a piece of old inner tube between the cage and the fork and a good wrap with electrical tape hold it sufficiently for a few days on road?
these are good. I like their cages too. not that cheap I'm afraid. https://www.cyclemiles.co.uk/shop/brompton-gifts/gorilla-clip-for-gorilla-cage-and-monkii-system/#.XO-WgzbYqto
I was recently gifted a pair of gorilla cages for my birthday so I bought the clips and bags to match. Only just fitted but seem well made and the quick release system is handy.
I had to mount them angled a bit towards the front due to the shape of the forks but they seem to sit fine. I'll report back if I have any problems after a loaded up trial.
I've got the mounts, they're super versatile as they're the same spacing as regular bottle cages / anything cages. I use mine for putting cages on my suspension forks and under the DT before I had eyelets.
Local builder, only started fabricating in 2015.
Not my thing, this bike, but what do people here think?
Bags are a little loud for my tastes, but I love a truss fork!
HT angle looks too steep, like it's been crashed into a wall
Steep HT and long rake fork is standard low-trail business. Not everything needs progressive mtb geometry ;)
I like it, but the fork a-c is very long for a bike that's not got the geo to to work well with a sus fork. Would have been nicer to even up the clearances and get more bag space to boot. Stem length is pretty crazy too, but I can't guess how it feels.
Is the extra tube a carry handle?
My setup for the TAW, set off for Dublin tomorrow. Custom made frame and top tube bag by my mate who is designing for Roswheel, the saddle pack is off the peg from their new collection.
Looks familiar! :)
The bike is the builder’s own-he’ 6’8” using 220 cranks if that makes any difference in your assessment.
