Had to put in an order to rebuild the drivetrain on my hardtail road ride, so I picked up a couple extra items and did this project for my bikepacking setup.
Using these and the mount on the bottom of the downtube, I should be able to get everything but my daypack and bladder off my back and on to the bike. I'll eventually do an expanded post on the BP forum or on bikepacking.net, but for now, I figure a few locals may be interested in the concept.
Tire tubes will work well for wrapping around the fork legs, but I have a big roll of clear vinyl to use that provides great grip too.
Cages vary, but these Profile Design ones work well. Can't really see it in the photos, but I drilled through the support spine on the hollow portion, just on and above the solid base.
Shouldn't need to, but I'll probably end up taking the Dremel to the base surface and work it a bit to fit the curve of the legs.
