All,

So while looking at photos of Brooks Flyers, I saw a photo of one with an interesting "rack" attached to the owner's seatpost. It is pictured here (and this is not from my website - FYI):



Anyone know what this is and where might I buy one?

Thanks,
Warr

Seems to be a Carradice Bagman, but mounted on the seatpost rather than the rails (probably because the champion flyer doesn't have exposed rails like the non-spring Brooks' do).

Hmm... thought it was a Nitto R-12 but the clamp style isn't the same. It is also not a Carradice Bagman nor a Viva Saddle Bag Support.

Ah, you mean it was intended to be clamped to a conventional set of seat rails so that the end of it would eventually be horizontal above the rear tire, but it was re-purposed to what it is here?

I was thinking of the Expedition rather than the Sport. I don't know if that's the original clamp or not, but based on the angle, I would say it was designed to be attached to the rails.
