I am looking for a very small bag that straps under my saddle. Just big enough for a road tube and a couple of co2 cylinders.I have seen real small one's but never in a store or in a magazine.
Does anyone know where to buy such a thing? It has to be small(25 cu. inches or less)

Pearl Izumi makes a very small saddle bag called the tailgate (I think). It's big enough just for a tube, patch kit and 2 CO2 cartriges. You can order one from,, etc...It's about as small as you can get.
not quite as small as you can get...SteveO

just roll whatever you carry inside some canvas, or a ziploc, and tie it under the seat.

my survival kit can be more than 6 square inches. And it was free!

I, too, was looking for a tiny saddle bag. I bought a Pedro's bag made of recycled inner tubes. Its' just big enough to hold 3 C02 cartridges, a multitool and a $5 bill.

Here's their webpage:
REI, Nashbar, Performance, plus a $3 Rivendell trickretro

Bike shops around here are full of little bags like that--they can't give the little ones away. The mass-market catalogs have a bunch of them, too. Shoot, I'd give you one of mine--I hardly ever use them.
The coolest way to do it, though, is in the Rivendell catalog, though you could easily make your own: Put everything in about an 18-inch square of canvas, roll it up like a burrito and fasten it under the seat with a toe strap.
But only if you can find an old Binda Extra (nm).djg

They make a solid product and stand behind it, but it might not be quite small enough for you.

They make two small bags. The smallest one sounds like what you want. You can just barely squeeze a tube, lever, patch kit, and CO2 cartridge/nozzle into it. They are super durable and Performance sells them. The Pearl Izumi mentioned above is bigger than the Jandd and quickly fell apart on me.

Colorado Cyclist has a nice small bag...25 or maybe 30 ci.
It's not on their website, but it is in the catalog...about
$12.00 I think.
