Frame bag questions

First post, been gleaning info from here for a while.

Never see these used, but am looking for a small pack like this to carry odds and ends, anyone use one and comment on them?

Well, I don't use one like that.
I use the wedge bag that goes under the seat.

I dont think there is much of a difference. Just get whatever holds what you want to fit in there.
I think most people carry there stuff in their hydro packs now, its easier to adjust to an extra 5lbs on your back than 5 lbs on your bike.
But backpacks suck for some purposes, such as riding to the store, in that case the bike pack is better.

Ya I am never out without my Hydro, so everything goes in there, I would look into buying a cheap hydro pack before I spent money on a frame bag, but to each there own. I saw a 3L hydro pack at Wal-mart of all places, I believe the name was North 49, or something like that, actually didn't look like it was that bad of quality, the bladder and bite valve were good quality, the bag was avg at best, but still for $20 how can you go wrong, I'll stick with my camelback.

Yeah, I got a hydrapak, so that's what I use now. Of course there was like a 10 year window between my huffy and hydrapak when I just used my pockets.

Never cared for them. I prefer the seat wedge type or for longer rides my Camelbak

for a larger bike frame bag, check out the akrapack (www.akrapack.com) and since its a bag you dont have to have custom made, its alot cheaper than other options

I have that exact bag and have no problems with it. It would have to really be stuffed full for it to get in your way. I use it to carry food for longer rides.

If Tom J is still looking for a frame bag 3 years later, he has other issues.
