    Another saddlebag recommendation thread

    What's a good one that won't cause problems with my carbon seatpost? I have a race style bike, so I have no eyelets or anything like that either. I'm just looking for something that can hold tools, spares, and maybe things like a pair of walking shoes and light jacket if possible and hold up to the elements.

    Thanks!

    Walking shoes? The largest seat bag made is the Jandd Mountain Wedge III. You don't have to use the Freddy bungies that come with it. Otherwise an aluminum seatpost would be the way to go. Then you can use a great variety of rack bags. I just got a Detours High Tail which I like very much, but no carbon post with this sort of thing.

    Look at some of the Carradice bags along with a Bagman support, that does not need to be attached to the seatpost.

If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
