A good under seat bag

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

A good under seat bag

What's a good under seat bag? Just looking for something to carry a few small objects in...
of course unless someone has some better ideas about what to put in a bag!

This article might help. I have the Jandd bag myself, and it is excellent.

That post has lots of pics and info that might help you

also




Pedro's blowout bag

This is what I use, I have the 50 cubic inch version and carry alot in it.

2 tubes, patch kit, multi-tool, 2 tire levers, CO2 system with 2 cartridges, and still have enough room that I could put a small cell phone in there if I wanted. I will often put my cell phone in my bento box

I got a Headlands CMT this year and it's the best I've used. Huge capacity (I have the Med.) and it's nice that it opens completely to make digging around easier. I also like the material -- smooth vinyl-like stuff that doesn't hold dirt. BTW, the "Headlands" sticker just peels right off so it's all black with no logos or graphics.

I have the Bento Box, too, and I will keep it forever. One thing, though, I had to remove the plastic backing from the front and back, cuz it would lean and sometimes hit my leg with a sharp edge. With the backing removed, it's great.

Do a google search for TNI Bento Box. Get it in large.

I use the topeak medium aero wedge with straps. Fits 2 tubes, 1 torelli mini pump. 1 CO2 pump and 2 extra CO2 cartridges. Also have a boot or two in there for "just in case"

I bought mine at a LBS that has a Triathelete team

Google search results yeilded several possible places online to get them.

I reccomend getting the large, that is what I have. I also took out the plastic inserts.

Went through all 86 pages of the What road bike do you have thread looking for an attractive minimalist seat pack. Settled on the Specialized '05 Mini Wedgie Bag. hth

I like the Pedro's blowout bag. Especially since it's made from blowouts.

I use the Topeak Wedge Pack Medium, but you might find the small one big enough for your needs. The medium sized swallows my GPS, cell phone and wallet even without expanding it.
