    Carrying stuff in the "hole" in your Mojo frame?

    I'm working on liberating myself from a CamelBak for my frequent shorter rides. I'm all set save for a good way to carry a spare tube/tire levers/CO2. I'm thinking a nice little package of those items would fit into the "hole" in the front triangle of my HD3 frame. Anyone done something similar on any Mojo? I'd like a nice little clean, compact strap-able setup that won't rattle around or damage the frame. Something like a Backcountry Research Awesome Strap would be ideal, but that co. seems to have folded (Nothing in stock on their site, don't answer emails.)

    Any suggestions? A little roll-up that'd hold a tube and levers would be great, but I've had trouble finding such an item.

    I think Ibis refers to "the hole" as "the gas tank".
    I'm surprised they haven't got custom made pouches to fit in there. A little canvas bag with a zipper on the side and 2-3 velcro straps to hold it to the frame would be perfect.

    I've been using a Specialized seat bag stuffed in the hole for a month now. I'll post pics when I get home.

    I like dbug's idea! Perhaps a collab with one of those cool hipster NorCal bag makers? $100 including some artisanal coffee and a vial of moustache wax? Until then, I'm rocking a $2 Velcro strap from the hardware store, along with a lezyne pump mount that integrates with the bottle cage. Simple, functional, and looks clean IMO.

    it's not $2, but this seems like it would be ideal. I'm currently using one of their straps under my seat

    Seems like your leg or foot would hit that shock pump?

    It would, but I'm not sure that outfit is still in business. Nothing no their site is listed as "in stock" and they haven't responded to email queries. Too bad, looks like a great product and just what i was looking for.

    I have a friend who makes bags, I may see what he can gin up....

    I got one from them a couple months ago, I think they make them to order. the site went awhile in between updates when I was watching/waiting too, but I'd try giving them a call.

    Good to know; I emailed them but got nothing back, and every single item is "temporarily unavailable" on the site....

    Hasn't been a problem so far. Running clipless & XC-style shoes, BTW. Might be an issue for skate/flats or clown shoes/fat feet.

    Carrying stuff in the &quot;hole&quot; in your Mojo frame?-20150504_191123.jpg

    Specialized Mini Wedge. It has a rubber coating that keeps it from sliding out. I've got a tube, tire lever, CO2 inflator, extra CO2 cartridge, and a mini tool packed in it. Nice thing about a bag is that it keeps the tube out of the sun.

    I love being able to ditch the backpack for most of my rides now.

    I ride a Ripley and put a side-loading bottle cage and multi-tool combo on. Water and multi-tool issues solved. Then just put a flat kit in a Ziploc and place in a jersey pocket or get some Swat bibs/shorts. Works perfectly and keeps unnecessary clutter off the bike. Can't even tell it's there and it's so much better than carrying a pack. Can even stuff an extra bottle in there if needed and just use the pack on longer rides.

    Yeah, I have the same on my HD3, works great. I actually prefer it to carrying a tool elsewhere as it's super easy to access the tool any time. Nice product.

    Nice! I wasn't sure if that one would fit on the Ripley frame or not. Might have to pick one up...

    I use this one - Specialized Bicycle Components

    Works great, can fit a cambelbak podium bottle in there just fine.

    Heh, I can just get a tube in the small HD trunk. Maybe my husband can carry more cargo in his large HDR
