    Airborne HobGoblin frame bag

    Hey all,

    When i ride i like to ride light carrying only my phone wallet and car keys. i cannot find a bag that fits the HobGoblin frame that is not cumbersome, either the top tube and downtube are too fat or the rear suspension gets in the way for any of my current bags. i have thick thighs so front seatpost bag is out of the question there. I have a camelbak but never carry it due fact we are never too far from the cars.
    i know what you are thinking to yourself but the only reasonable place to ride is a 10 mile loop at the local park so i never feel the need to ride with more that a few co2 in the saddle bag which it too small to carry my fat phone.

    Any feedback is appreciated

    I know some guys who ride with this:

    Amazon.com: Tacx Tool Tube For Water Bottle Cage: Sports & Outdoors

    I don't ride with a pack or camelback. If it doesn't fit in my back jersey pockets, it doesn't need to come along on the ride.

    The bike looks great.

    I travel lite also. Enough stuff in my seat bag in case of flat or mechanical.

    I just got myself a Road ID wristband. Until now I would take my wallet/license with me, but now I just take a couple $ just in case.

    Carry your phone in a jersey pocket or hydro pack.

    Maybe, you need to consider a smaller phone? Just saying.

    Your bike looks sweet. One of the best pics I have seen of the HG.

    BDF, consider his pic for POD.
