    Sleeping bag on Mary bars

    So I've searched a couple threads and this forum and not finding any results for how you guys are carrying bags on Mary Bars. If you are using those bars, please post a couple pictures of how you're attaching your sleeping bag or bar bag to it. I'm having some difficulty figuring this one out with how the cables run.

    Thanks!

    I don't have Mary Bars, but I made a sling with attachment straps that fit either side of the stem "head" were the bar attaches and one on strap attachs the "neck" of the stem. The sling has 3 other straps to hold my dry bag. I did have to run a new longer front brake cable to make everthing fit... I made the whole thing for about $15 bucks

    Sleeping with Mary

    I use one of the relevate design pockets with straps with my Marys. I am able to fit my sleeping bag and down jacket in the dry bag. Works quite well and is stable.

    When I did the Vapor Trail on my Pugsley, I put my sleeping bag and bivy in a compression stuff-sack, and slackened one of the straps enough to where I could fit on the bars, then tightened it. Worked like a charm. It was easy to access, easy to pack, and never came loose. I didn't even bother with a sling. I'm at work now, but I'll try and get a pic if I have one.
