    Need a new bag for my ebike's battery

    Hi,

    I bought my ebike two months ago. It has a bag that attaches to the seatpost and saddle, in which the battery is stored. The bottom of the bag is starting to tear so it's only a matter of time before the battery will fall, and it will most likely happen during a ride.

    I am looking for a new bag that attaches to the top tube of the bike (this is a folding bike, so there's no triangle in the frame, like BionX batteries do. There are two reasons for that: one is that the rear wheel has the motor, so I think it's best to place the 2.5KG battery on the front, and two is that I'd like to easily be able to remove the battery bag from the bike when I lock it (so far, I've been carrying the whole seatpost + saddle, which is big. A battery bag alone would fit inside my messenger bag).

    This is my bike, and I marked in blue where I want the new bag to attach (red cross is where the current bag is placed):

    Thanks.

    Not sure how big it needs to be but one that might look promising is the Topeak Mondopack XL. They come in medium, large and extra large. The extra large one looks similar to the bag in your picture.

    A google search will turn up a lot of vendors.

    The Mondopack does not attach to a top tube so it's pointless to buy one. I'm in the process of trying to attach my current bag to the top tube.

    Carradice saddle bags are well regarded , I used their Wood Dowel support Brace to mount a Battery pack before

    though it was for Lighting, not powering a Motor, so remaining storage space will be less..since battery will fill more of It..
