    Frame bags to fit small frames.

    I have had a difficult time finding a frame bag the fits into my small Fatback frame. I know I could pony up $150 for a custom made one, but did not want to spend the cash.

    I bought 2 to test fit. The only way I can get them to fit is backwards. I moved my waterbottle from the downtube to the seat post.

    Jandd Frame Pack - Did not fit well at all.

    Bushwhacker Tahoe Black Frame Bag ($13.95) - Fits once you cut off the back strap and add on a strap to keep it tight to the down tube. It comes with velcro spots already on the bag sides. I had to add velcro to the top tube sections to "extend" them. They were not long enough to reach once you stuff the bag full. The 2-way zippers are nice. Its not water anything proof...use a ziplock bag if needed.

    I have a rear rack I can use with 2 different bag options. But, it's too large, heavy and bulky.

    I probably should have mentioned I was looking for a small type of storage solution I can use on longer rides/races. Sorry about that. I'm trying to keep everything off my back and on the bike. Nice and tight and light.

    For under $20 this looks to be a great solution to maximize the small frame space and still allow me to use 1 watter bottle. My next solution is to figure out how to carry more water. I'm thinking a 32oz-40oz bottle that will fit on the underside of the down tube.

    Here is a low cost universal frame bag available in Canada. I use something similar from MEC I bought 20yrs ago [shown in pic above].
