12″ Sub inside my OYB bag.
Some of you may remember this little bag from Outyourbackdoor.com, but since my post was a casualty of Mr. Hacker, I think it’s worth mentioning again.
This little $35 bag is a saddle bag, handlebar bag, pannier, or a man purse.
It’s 10″x8″x4″ and is great for carrying all manner of daily-use goodies, including wine bottles.
The way the bag works is that each bag comes with 3 small leather buckle-straps stowed in the front pouch. To use as a bar-bag, tuck shoulder-strap into main-pouch and thread 2 leather straps thru the big D-rings to the bars and 1 strap around the head-tube thru the waist-strap D-rings. To use as a saddle-bag, here’s where it gets neat: Each main-strap D-ring has a 1/4″ section removed beneath its attachment loop—shove the canvas aside and clip each D-ring thru your saddle rail or bag-loop, then use a leather-strap to afix to the seatpost. Presto!
I attached it to the Brooks Saddle of my Swobo Sanchez and it has become extremely useful. I can carry a T-shirt, shorts, a tube and my CO2 pump in that little bag. Today, I used it to carry my 12″ Sub that I got for lunch. So if you are looking for a small inexpensive do-it all bag, I highly recommend the OYB Bag.
