    Suzi Q/Blizzard Long Shot - anyone have the factory bag for front triangle?

    Rocky Mountain has on their online web store a clearanced bag that only fits the aluminum Suzi Qs and Blizzards. It isn't particularly cheap, even at 1/2 off, but it is perfect for the builtin screws in the frames front triangles.

    I'm just wondering if there's still room for a regular water bottle on the downtube with the bag installed. It doesn't look tall, the bag, but I have no idea if you could squeeze a bottle in or not.

    So, I just thought I'd see if anyone actually bought the bag.

    Yes, I have one on a 2017 Blizzard (L). Not enough room on the frame for a bottle and cage. But I can stick a bottle in the bag easily enough.

    Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for. I might get one anyway just because its strapless and meant to fit

    No issues, but this bike doesn't see much use during dirt season.

    That description is confusing, I'd actually messaged them yesterday asking for confirmation that it wouldn't work with a carbon Suzi and their response was:
    I know the description is a bit confusing but the framebags will fit your carbon SuziQ. You have all the right mounting grommets for the bag to fit. Simply chose the size that matches your frame size. Thank you for riding a Rocky Mountain and Love the Ride!

    This is a medium 2017 Blizzard. The bottle is a 20oz insulated Camelbak. A 20oz uninsulated has a bit more clearance. I think the cage is a sideload specialized cage.
