Bike bag

I am looking for an inexpensive bag to caries my Downtube 8fs in. When I see the dimensions of available bags, they appear to be to small for my bike. I think a bag would need to be 36" x 28" x 18" or so to fit my bike. I have looked for truck tire bags, music bags, rv, sailing g bags....Any suggestions?

In the original post the word INEXPENSIVE is used. A custom bag isn't inexpensive.

This should fit your bike, and it's fairly cheap. I have one.

I had some great bags made in Thailand, but we sold out. I will have some next season, I know a customer bought a cheap bag on ebay ( Rock bros or some similar name ). It was half decent, but too small to fit a 9FS.

Thanks,
Yan

the first time I used a carrybag I tried to lift the bike and place it into the bag, it did not work. I recommend customers fold their bikes put the bag on top of the folded bike then flip and zip....it's quick and easy to use a bag using this technique.

Thanks,
Yan
