    Troll 14" and

    Has anyone tried using a framebag for size 14" surly Troll? I'm wondering if its too small a triangle to be a usable space. I want to buy my wife a framebag once we get her Troll

    I have a small Pugsley with a Revelate frame bag(small, made for my bike model specifically) and it does help utilize the space in the triangle better than having 1-2 waterbottles and a pump. Is it small? Yes. But it is usable space and it helps us smaller folk carry more without having to backpack it. I bought mine for supplies on a 150 gravel grinder all day race in August. My plan was just to use it then, but it works so great that I just keep it on there. The side pockets increase the usability.

    My frames on my other bikes are pretty close to the same dimensions triangle wise and the Velcro straps are ample. I have no doubt that I could use the frame bag on all my bikes pretty successfully. And for what I paid....I hope so.

    iphildrive thanks for the link but i'd like to hear from people who've been using it. Like tents, backpacks and other outdoor equipments that we use, you can read all the specs and features of products online but you still want the see the reviews from real world users.

    Frame bags are pretty small, compared to 40L rear panniers. My 18" frame only gets 8.2L of frame bag capacity. It's more about accessing it's contents while riding, and balancing the weight of a load.

    I say get one for the convenience factor, even if it only holds some tools and a snack, it'll be worth it.
