Who makes......

Post by JohnClimber » Tue Jul 28, 2020 11:21 am

As Wildcat aren't up and running just yet for custom builds......

Which companies make custom built waterproof frame bags with a roll top opening rather than a zipper?

I'm thinking of one for the Fat bike for next months WRT and beyond

I think Alpkit will do you a roll top if you ask.

Maybe worth checking this company out too. https://www.bike-bag.co.uk/index.html
May satan walk with you.

Cheers, no reply from Alpkit

Wizard Works aren't doing custom frame bags for the foreseeable future they say by email.

And 7Roads was the name that I forgot who say that they would need more time.

I'm chatting to a very nice fella called Matthew at Custom Merit Gear over in Amsterdam who so far is talking a great talk.

Let's see what comes out of it.

Thanks all

You could give https://www.straightcutdesign.com/ a go. There isn't a roll-top option on the site but Ross seemed very open to requests when I got my custom frame bag done. His communication was very good and the bag I got is great.

I had the same experience as Neil with Straightcut. Great bag and fits perfectly.
