"I don't like big saddle bags and have been hunting for a bag to suit
me for ages. then I found this. neat enough to suit my "eye" yet big
enough for .. A tube, 2 tyre levers, a co2 cartricartridge, multi tool,
power link, patches, tyre patch and 2 latex gloves. This may sound like it's a big bag but it's not .
All in all very pleased."
Pros: Good Fit, compact

A more portable version of Castelli's top of the line jacket. Able to fold up in to your pocket, this jacket is also lighter on your wallet. Fully waterproof and featuring great breathability, this jacket is ideal for staying prepared.

"Beware that the small sealing washer in the valve head "can" get
stuck to the valve when everything frosts up after use. check it's
not on the vavle when you remove the pump as without it the
pump is useless.
on a lighter note however - works flawlessly in the field #apart
from the above# and allows a small inflation first to check seating
etc before commiting to a full inflate - nice. You can easliy store
an unused cartridge inside it saving pocket space :)

 Arundel Dual Seat Bag 2013
Arundel Dual Seat Bag 2013
The Arundel Dual seat bag is the perfect compromise between the two extremes of seat bag. It's bigger than a coin purse sized bag, yet it's smaller than the carry-all sized bag that wouldn't fit in the overhead bin of a commercial airliner.

"a great little investment. yes you have to take a wheel out and yes
you could do with a toe strap to hold the bottom bracket down but
all that pales when you use it for the first time. no wobbling about
like the "clamp the seat post/frame" ones, no back ache, all the
tools being used are right there on the tray.
Can't believe how easy re-indexing gears now is :)
The only downside if I can find any are trying to get a road bike on
that has full guards with a mud flap fitted ... close to not going but
it can be done.

Enduro power and minimal size make the Toro a winning combination for tearing down the trails. Triple XML output of 1600 lumens controlled by Reflex Technology means it’s capable of putting out the power of last year’s MaXx-D.
 

Will the mounting bracket for the "Exposure Toro Mk6" fit onto my 3T Ergonova handlebars . Thanks .

Product Size (Capacity)

I was wondering if this bag is capable of holding the following items

1 Spare 700cc road tube
3 Tyre Levers
Topeak Alien III multi tool
Couple of spare chain links
Money
Top 250 Contributor

Not likely to fit given the size of the alien iii. The lezyne micro caddy in small is probably a better bet.

I normally take a size 42 shoe. However, cycling shoes often seem to be small for their size. What size do you recommend I should try in the ZS15R?
