Need a tubular tire saddlebag(4 posts)

I've seen these a couple of times on other bikes. The bag I'm referring to is narrow, attaches to the saddle rails at the rear, and to the seatpost down near the post's entrance into the seattube. It is nice and narrow so as to not rub the legs. Anyone know who makes these? I don't see them listed in catalogs.

I just bought one at the local shop. It's made by Inertia Designs. It holds a tubular, CO2 inflator, small tool and not much else. It has small side pockets for keys, ID, etc. It was about $17. Unfortunately, I already threw away the tag with the company address. Check with your LBS.

I've seen others made by Cannondale.

In the past, I used to just attach a tubular to the saddle rails using a toe strap, and carry anything else in a jersey pocket. For real retro-Euro-cool, loop a spare tire over a shoulder and across your body.

My boyfriend has a Pedro's bag partially made of an old tube, $15 or so. Comes in several different colors.

Try your local bank branch and ask for a coin bag. The Federal Reserve used to deliver coins in heavy duty nylon bags. I think the one they used for dimes is the right size for a folded up tubular. I've used the same one for 25+ years, strapped to my seat rails with an old toe strap. It keeps the tire dry and reduces/elimates any wear on the spare from rubbing on the seat rails and post. Simple and cheap.
