    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.

    @disposable: not at all, the bag is firmly attached there. i put some bungee cord to have it tightened a bit
    @ttakata73: thanks
    @bhkyte: yes it is.
    @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
