would you mind posting/sending me a few pictures of

- how you mount it - is it possible to put it on a saddle like what I have here ? I've seen a very nice sort-of-saddle-rack posted here recently (by Andy ?), is this necessary ? (url:http://www.geocities.com/marchantshapiro/strange_ideas/saddlebag2.htm)

- the outside of the bag: I've seen only pictures from too far to have a good opinion.

- the inside of the bag.

Thanks !

If need be, my email is: pierre dot moreels at jpl dot nasa dot gov.

this pic. if you can wait 'til monday, i'll take some good ones of the bag, inside/out, what can fit, how it's mounted, and what you'll need to get it mounted on that non-brooks saddle. sorry for the delay--i'm offline on weekends.
of course I can wait... I'm broke until the end of the month...PeterRider

Assuming it attaches like the Lowsaddle Longflap...cory

I don't have a Junior, but I take a Lowsaddle Longflap everywhere. It attaches with two leather straps made to go through the loops on the back of a Brooks B-17, with a third strap around the seat post.
I've used it on saddles without loops many times--the straps are long enough to go around the saddle rails on everything I own. Never had a problem, rides fine, occasionally brushes the backs of my legs but you don't notice it after a minute.
No prob...Andy M-S

Well, if you don't mind having the bag brush against your legs a little, you can either loop the straps around your saddle rails or buy a set of Cyclo bag loops. The latter bolt onto the saddle rails and let you attach the leather straps through loops that are oriented back-to-front. Costs about $5, I think. I use those on one of my bikes.

If you need any more info on my rack system, OTOH, feel free to e-mail.
