That's a pretty good idea. Do you have any trouble with the pack sliding down after you attach it?

Nice work.
I often attach a carabina to my saddle rails to achive something simular. Its does swing about, but abungee can secure it to seatpost if its a problem. One of the few advanagers of a long seatpost. This has frequenty got me out of trouble when I had to carry an unplanned load.

Rixen Kaul make this gadget to attach backpacks to bikes. They also produce backpacks with a fixing that clicks into one of their adapters.

@dame & paul braithwait: thanks for the info. I am sure for those who has daily ride with some longer seatpost could be thinking same idea. but I `m was going to `self customize my bag` just to save expensives, and I`am just curious how it works

@pinigis: here it is
