Smallest frame bag?

Post by FLV » Sun Mar 01, 2020 12:03 pm

Can anyone point me to a very small frame bag?

Something to carry a few tools a snack, car key and phone. Ive got an alpkit possum which is a small and its about twice the size I was thinking, though usefull for a small jacket.

Deffinately an inside the frame bag, not a top tube fuel tank thing but that sort of size.

Ta.

IIRC Bob has used a wee frame-top bag inside the frame triangle.

Stu, perhaps a little but a good option.
Scotroutes, it always seems to me that im asking to drop everything if i open it, or that id have to remove the bag to access it.

The old Jandd framebag might be the sort of thing you want, although they were always hard to find as I'm not sure they were ever sold in the UK? I borrowed this one off my mate for the BB200 in 2015 (the rolled up strapping isn't part of it, that was my hikeabike solution):

As ever with the internet, I’ll recommend something that you’ve not asked for :lol: I use a feed for the same thing, spare tools, pump, tube etc

If you type ‘ frame bag mtb’ into Amazon you get a fair selection for around £15 :-bd

My wife has this for use inside a mixte frame.

I've used it a couple of times and it's ok for what we paid for it £20 or less iirc. It's not to the same standard as say Revelate but does the job for her bits and bobs on day trips including a fairly large mobile. Basic cordura like fabric and well stitched, but I wouldnt think it was particularily waterproof. I replaced the straps with velcro one touch for neatness!

Seems to be superceded by this model:

I was going to suggest the afore mentioned Restrap Framebag Small - 2.5L. However, it's not much smaller in volume than the smallest AlpKit Possum, which is 2.6L...
