For anyone who has the Pearl Izumi tailgate, how much stuff can you fit in it (posted volume is 30 cu. in.). For others, any recommendations (yes, I know, major purchase!). Need to fit tube, tire irons, patch kit, co2 inflator and 2 16g cartridges. Cellphone under saddle would be nice, but not required. I've been looking at the Colorado Cyclist brand packs also. Thanks.

I ordered one from CC a few years ago. It is way smaller than it looks in the picture. Kinda like a tailgate party in a VW bug. I sent it back. I find the JanD packs have enought room for what you describe. I like to carry 2 tubes, tools (tire irons, hex wrenches, spoke wrench), a power bar, mini chain breaker and 3 12 gram C02 cartirdges in mine. I can stuff all that in a JanD.
Thanks. What size Jandd (nm)?Horace Greeley

I can't remember. Stuff like this I typically buy at my LBS to reduce the guilt I feel when they help me with a mechanical problem on one of my three mail ordered bikes.
