Frame Triangle Bags

anyone recommend a frame triangle bag (full triangle) that opens to the left non-driveside of the bike? for mtb frame

the Revelate Designs ones look great, but sounds like the main compartment opens to the driveside
what's with that btw? so far all the bags I've seen open to DS
if I mount dismount and walk the bike from NDS would it not make sense for frame bags to also face that way?

thanks

Easy, Buy some light duty canvas and have the local shoe repair sew a triangle up for you.

It's one of those websites that try to be fancy and make you sick when you try to interact with them. I guess it is OK if you can circumvent and interact with the maker directly.

Not sure what you mean. Joe does prefer to work one on one to ensure you get exactly what you want and how you want it!
Can't really hate a man for going out and making his own way and helping out the biking community.

I am just addressing the fact of being overwhelmed by the fancy features of his website that detract from the essence.

I had Jeff Boatman at Carousel Design fabricate a custom bag for my Litespeed hard tail. It has zips on both sides and a zip which divides the upper and lower compartments. I've had it for 6 years and it is still in very good shape.

Have someone embroider advertising signs on the fabric before sewing it up so the space pays for itself..

Good idea. I notice shoe repair folks charge very little for their labor and their expertise.
