Smallest Saddle Bag?

Postby DubaiNeil » Thu Dec 06, 2012 16:20 pm

Hi All,

I'm looking for recommendations for the smallest possible saddle bag to carry 1 x road tube, 2 x "flat" Continental tyre levers, 2 x CO2 bulbs, 1 x CO2 inflater head, Park Tools self adhesive p*ncture patches and 1 x quick link.

I was using the Continental "packaged" tube bag which comes with the tube & levers - to which I could add the p*ncture patches and the quick link, but have decided to go "back" to CO2 as well.

I have seen the Lezyne Mico Caddy seems to get good reviews, but all the reviewers seem to want to carry a multi-tool as well - which I have no interest in.

Price is not important (within reason :wink: ) - however I'm sure I'll end up with one for each bike at some stage...

Waterproofing not an issue, food, phone, money etc all go in the back pockets so not an issue.

I do prefer to leave the bikes "ready to go" without having to move a bag from bike to bike, so fitting "complexity" not so much of a problem as it will live on the bikes(s)

Thanks

Neil

I've got this one: http://www.jejamescycles.co.uk/speciali ... tAodi0wAvw pretty small and you should get all your bits in there.

I have the lezyne and it has a separate slot for the multi-tool although I have never put one in it and fail to see how one would fit (unless you put less in the main compartment).

It is pretty much as small as I could get away with for 2 tubes, levers and co2 and fits nicely.

Had one and yes looked OK on the bike and fitted most stuff in it, i ended up rubbing my expensive bibs on the velco straps! - Can't beat a Topeak pro pack small... Much easier to pack as it zips in half, (much easier than having to shove stuff down the back of a bag) your able to utilize all the space, plus there is absolutely no chance of it rubbing a hole in my bibs, plus when on the bike it looks as good as a saddle bag can..

Lezyene micro caddy will swallow that lot and still looks small.

The micro caddy has a tiny additional slot at the bottom for a micro tool to fit in - so don't let that put you off as it takes up so little room anyway and if you want to not carry a tool, you've not lost anything with the bags internal space anyway.
