Anyone using Salsa Anything cage or Everything bag

I have a recumbent bikeE with a long handlebar stem and I am looking to mount a slim but longer bag to the stem.
I came across these two options which seem to be perfect:
- Salsa Anything cage combined with Anything bag
https://salsacycles.com/components/c...gs_frame_packs

- Cleaveland Mountaineering Everything bag:

Is anyone using any of these? I am trying to decide which is the better option. One is a metal frame and one is a flexible sleeve. Both able to hold a drybag.

last year's Trek 720 came with 2 bags and cages on the fork blades, they probably went to different vendors than those..


one of those was ordered thru my nearby LBS., but its not mine ....


you want those on the handle bars? fork for a 16" wheel too shoret..




I vote rigidity the 720 ones used a set of straps around the bag in the cage... maybe fit a 4 pint growler in the bag.x2 for balance..

I have many of the Salsa cages, I use some Porcelain Rocket bags for mine (discontinued) and small dry bags. The cages work well, you would need to use some hose clamps or something to attach them to the BikeE stem. Also look at the Salsa EXP cradle.
