    Something like your snackpack bags for now, but wider with a see through map compartment on top.

    Basically something similar to a motorcycle tank bag is what I am ultimately looking for. Of course not that big or bulky.

    There is a very good chance that this winter will bring about such things :thumbup:

    I see on your blogspot a new item being prototyped/tested.
    Red and Black looks pretty sweet. Looking forward to hearing more.

    Alright, thread cleaned.

    Let's all keep it civil in here. While I'm not opposed to people airing differences of opinion, I'm not going to tolerate grand accusations and personal attacks. I don't want to lock this thread, as it is otherwise productive and positive.

    Thanks.

    Hey Joe, how is the progress coming along in the seat bags? Were you able to make a stable enough design? Any extra features on it and what's capacity?

    Super stoked to see more pics!

    Does it clamp around seatpost and to saddle rails? If that's the case it would be awesome to have on my road bike for my work commutes and swap to my mtb for Bikepacking.

    The frame bag I purchased from you was designed for the inner triangle of my trance x but also fits in my road bike. The cutout of the rear shock is even perfect to allow a seat tube bottle cage with bottle. Works perfect!

    Thanks again and keep it up!
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    I've got multiple prototypes now and I'm dialing in the design as we speak. Trying to improve on the stability and capacity factors. Not scientifically tested, but I think we're in the 10-11 litre capacity

    That is the plan :thumbsup:

    Too cool man!
    The hardest part about designing a new 'product' is testing, testing, and testing even more.
    I've been super busy the past few weeks, but I am putting time into testing these to make sure they are the best they can be.

    Also planning on hitting a price point a bit lower than the current offerings

    This is great Joe.
    Some of us don't need a seat bag so tough it outlasts the bike frame. Not everyone races on the trails.
    I just need a way to carry my emergency clothing (rain/warmth) for daily riding.
    Something that just stays on the bike seat all the time.

    I'm currently using an OR 10L drybag with makeshift straps. It's kind of floppy and ugly but works for now. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

    That bag looks good, and i like the straps for the pump.
    I still want to do that with the velcro compartment divider in my framebag.

    What size Monkey is that ?

    Thank's, i still have to order a bag for my Monkey, and this is a good example of what i was planning to order.
    I'm still not completely sure if i am going to get a bladder compartment or a mappocket.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Update from Winter 2013

    Been using jpaks the rest of the year in '12 on the Fargo and have been Pugsley frame bag and others over the winter. Still have nothing negative to say. Did the template bit for fit and the fit was so on the spot that if I had the velcro straps too tight and packed the frame bag full it was hard to close the zipper. Needless to say kept the bag packed to the brim and loosened the velcro just a smidgen and all is well. Joe put the reflective material in the frame bag which comes in handy for the long dark Minnesota nights. Have run in to a # of folks on the trail and around town who have checked the bags and were quite impressed compared with other bag makers (particularly for the price). Pics of one of my latest rides:

    I am running a rear rack on the fork right now, but I hope to order up a seatpak soon. Looks like he thought of some good ideas for it. Hopefully get some more winterbikecamping in at that point.

    Also, got a buddy who ordered up a custom 'bike holster' from Joe. I think that he could be on to something there. Great inception and ideas going into that and could be a huge product for the right market. Thanks again Joe, and if anybody is in Minnesota and wants to see the paks look me up. Later!

    I can see they are not on your site yet, but can you tell us how much they will cost ?
    And can someone tell me how well these handlebar setups will work on 2" riser bars ?

    Yes they do. Just requires a few more 'wraps' to shorten the length when closing.
