    Looking for a new seat bag

    I can't seem to find the Specialized "Dirt Bag" anywhere. I love the capacity. I have one on my crux. I want another for the Roubaix.

    It has a capacity of 128 cu in expandable to 181 cu in.

    Looking for something close to this.

    i personally like carradice bags , they have many sizes
    Some need seat eyelets or an adapter . They also have some seat mounted racks that work well just make sure you have enough clearance seat to wheel . I have a Nelson with bagman mount . At 18 liter it's bigger than you probably need . They make them smaller & larger

    cheers

    Whoah! That's way bigger than I need :-) DirtBag is 128 cu in expandable to 181 cu in. That's about 2 - 3 Liter.

    This is on the Specialized website so is a current item, have you tried going to a Specialized dealer? Even if they don't have it in stock, they should be able to order it in for you.

    Good point, I used to run several different seat bags, but last year consolidated down to one, and just swap between bikes as needed, only takes a few seconds of prop time per ride,

    Yes it's more than you ask for ; ) but they got smaller ones . The Nelson is a fav of Randonnering & comuters and they carry well on race bikes not made for larger bags . They all expand well . And are quality made by people making a living wage in England .
    I passed on these bags the first two times I ask for bag advice.
    Cheers

    It's not available. Even Specialized told me they discontinued it.

    Different tubes for each, so I'd rather have one packed correct for each bike. Just much easier to have one on each.

    i have the Serfas Speed Bag (Medium): Amazon.com : Serfas Speed Bag : Bike Wedges : Sports & Outdoors

    My favorite so far in terms of inside space to size of bag ratio. Expandable, and has a inner sleeve on the side, a key clip and a mesh pocket.
    It's the 4th saddle bag I've tried and like I said so far it's perfect.

    It fits 2 CO2 cartidges plus adapter, 700x32 tube, large multitool, 2 pedros tire levers, small phone - and that's without being expanded.
