Saddle Cover when Hauling Bike

I have a large zip lock for a stationary cover. Now I need one while hauling the bike that will not blow off. What are you using that works. Thanks in advance.


Yes, I did try to search the archives before posting another thread.

A plastic shopping bag with a rubber band (that's "gum band" for those of you from Pittsburgh) or tape around the seat post to secure it.

maybe a shower cap if you don't want to just tie/knot up a plastic shopping bag.

I would only use one if the weather was to be inclimate. Are you concerned about fading from the sun?

I've used a heavy duty shower cap cinched on with a velcro strap. Worked.

got this for my brooks leather saddle. it has a nice snug fit. it I knew I was driving thru torrential storms I would add 2 plastic shopping bags taped around under the seatpost. I chose this one because you can also ride with it on
