My Favorite Saddle Bag For Gravel/ Road Bike

Hey folks! Just wanted to share an awesome saddle bag that I just picked up that fits just about everything and still manages to look sleep on the bike and not bulky. It's the Lezyn Roll Caddy. Check out my thoughts on it in my latest video. I'd also love for you to subscribe to my channel and give me a thumbs up if you dig the video.

What is wrong with promoting their content? Seems to me it was fairly well done, and could help someone out if they are looking for a new saddle bag! If you don't like it, you don't have to watch the viddy.

I get where you are coming from since while lurking around here I have seen some blatant self-promotion, but I think in this case they did a pretty decent job of promoting while also being helpful to riders here!

He would have left a much different impression if he hadn't included the sub/like begging "I'd also love for you to subscribe to my channel and give me a thumbs up if you dig the video."

If the content is worthy, folks will sub/like. The begging is sad.

I clicked through the video to see what the fuss is all about. Boring, so no sub or like here.

Fair enough, I guess that kind of request doesn't bother me, barely even noticed it, but don't think its the end of the world.

To each their own!

This is from the BF FAQ list of stuff we shouldn't do.

Amazon reviewers didn't like the way the Lezyne unit mounted and said it tends to shift causing it to rub on the back of you leg

https://www.amazon.com/LEZYNE-Caddy-.../dp/B00R0W7UG8

I just bought this one and love it

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

the medium is pretty good sized, almost too big for just tire/multitool, has a solid mount, well made, doesn't leak.

Compared to the Lezyne unit it is less money and better rated. Amazon #1 best seller with over 2500 five star reviews.

Did you join just to like your buddy's product endorsement?

Perhaps he is an agent for your two wheel design company in your sig?

Ha no I did join just last week though, had been lurking around for a while and figured it was high time to join and contribute to the community finally.

Don't know the guy at all, just thought they put some thought into the video and thought the post was harmless. Didn't know that exact snip of rule, thanks for sharing.

Also, I agree that second bag you link looks slick. I have a Serpas bag that is often hitting my leg, even causing me to wear through a pair of bike shorts, I am going to take a serious look at the large size of the BV bag - Thanks!

Yeah, they'll probably tell you to ditch your signature as well. Guess you posted the "link" in red when it wouldn't let you post an actual link. Doesn't make them happy when we try to sneak around them.

Simpler is better. This is the best saddle pack I've used.

You don't have a lot of credibility on this, given your signature line.

I like the Specialized bags. They hold stuff, and stay put!

Just sharing and trying to help. I've been a cyclist for over 15 years of my life getting into BMX, MTB, Road/ Gravel. I'm just trying to offer my expertise in what I feel is a kickarse product. Not trying to spam.

Thanks for that.
