    Are you powering anything else of the hub/Revo? When I’m running a red eye off the Revo i usually only get 2 leds until I travel at sustained 20/22kph. Setting off, around town or slower rides with the Red eye attached I’ll never get all 4 leds showing.

    This is which a Shimano Alfine 6v3w hub, which should be the same output as SP8 I believe.

    You’re going to need that compression top cap if you’ve still got the carbon forks on there...

    Or sell it on with the forks!

    Where the existing snap clips hard to drill out? Might have to do this on a few bags if it’s only £0.84 a pop...

    Looking good! This is the one thing I don’t like about the Zipped roll, otherwise perfect size for shorter day rides/an extra layer.

    How do the clasps first? Look like they just snap in/affixed with metal pins that get bent out?

    Thanks @amey and @r.hobbs

    Went into Brompton junction today to have a look and the game bag looked good, but also seemed to be the same size as the new O bags, at least from the outside.

    Will take a look at certain websites to see carradices offering, do like their saddlebags.

    Good to know! Is it waterproof enough? I currently have the small waxed cotton roll top and find that it needs an extra cover to stop the inside getting damp.

    Are the new bags waterproof? That’s why I liked the idea of the O bag.

    @amey that’s even more! Does look good though...

    Ah perfect. Thanks for the tip! I’ve got Ortlieb panniers so was basing the size on that, which seemed plenty! Will definitely go and check it out before buying rather than buying blind online. Thanks!

    Seem to be ok? Not the mini one, the 20L version which seems to hold about the same as one of their panniers, or is that not the case?
