Has anyone had success finding a carradice super C saddlebag in the last six months?

Seems like the worldwide supply has dried up. I have a standing order with wiggles that keeps getting pushed back every month. Nothing from SJS. Even the stateside suppliers seem to be out.

Annoying to say the least. What's the deal with Carradice. They seem to have a sever supply problem.

I got mine through Wiggle a few months ago. I think I waited about a month for it (after I'd paid).

I placed my original order on 9/1. Wiggle keeps pushing their "we expect more in stock" date back every two weeks like clockwork. SJS says they are supposed to get some in this Saturday, but I don't have a lot of faith in anyone's projections anymore.

why not go for the rack bag, basically the same thing except it sits on top of rear rack instead of seatpost. brilliant bag amazing the amount of gear it holds.

Rack pack is only 13 litres vs 23 for the saddlebag.

You've probably already tried them, but Peter White's says they have "plenty" although the date is over a year old. Seems like if you are a viable company you'd make sure your website was current.http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/carradice.asp

Peter White was out two months ago. Ordered mine straight from Carradice and had it in the states within 10 days. At that time the exchange rate was in my favor. Less than $90 included shipping from England.

Yes, I would suggest ordering directly from Carradice themselves.

Mine has been used once for 17 miles with a lite load. Not going to work for what I wanted.

I will sell it shipped, conus, for $80.

Tried to send you a private message but I don't have enough posts yet.

Send me a private message with an email address if interested. If not it'll go on ebay soon.
