Well, that won't work.
The width spacing on the saddle rails won't work w/ the '70's Brit bag w/ Cyclo Loops on my Turbo, and I'm not changing saddles.
I'll move the Schwinn Approved bag onto the Brooks B-72 saddle on my town bike where it will both useful and period correct.
Since the Soma is my modern interpretation of a classic club rider's machine perhaps forgetting about the old school designs and going contemporary would be best. My requirements would be for a simple, durable & solid seatpack design of medium capacity that costs less than a crankset, and won't touch my leg when moving back on the saddle.
Any tried & true recommendations? Arkel? Carridice QR?
