    I got a medium pack and like it, build quality is fine, pretty sure they guy makes them himself too and I got an email directly from the owner of the site when I ordered. I'd buy again! I bought the medium tube, it is a little skinny, but unique, enough space for a few essentials and reasonably priced.

    Am I mistaken, or does revelate not do custom frame bags anymore? I switched from Revelate to Bike Bag Dude. Enjoying a larger bag both wider and fill in the triangle more (my only 2 complaints with Revelate). Both are tip notch, but I am looking to get biggest volume I can. Right now the Salsa bags from Revelate are designed for certain none fatbikes of theirs to reduce sku's. That means width is not optimised for the larger q factor.
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    I don't know if they do custom unless you walk in the shop in ANC. I think it had become a big enough company that it is standardized. I know my revelate salsa bag had more room than the oveja bag my dad got for his frame of the same size. Any wider and I would be hitting it.

    Homemade framebag for fatty. The first install. In this figure, it is not yet fully seated. I used these instructions...https://forums.mtbr.com/fat-bikes/ho...vy-596676.html

    This was my third bag. the previous two were in my 29er.

    - Revelate bags are awesome! Eric Parsons has been making and using his bags for a long time now.
    - Becker Sewing has also been making some great bags the last couple years. I believe he's also still open to doing some custom stuff.

    Custom Bicycle Bags from Porcelain Rocket

    Scott is an Awesome Dude, and his quality and workmanship are second to none. In Canada in case it matters.

    I have nothing but good things to say about my Revelate Surly bag. Two winters and it still works like new.

    Yup and like Tundra said you may get them to make something if you go their garage in ANCH. I had Bedrock make mine custom.

    It is a planet bikes versa rack disc. 38 bucks shipped. I mounted it with two alternator bolts by cutting one of the included spacers in half and getting longer bolts. I am gonna also drill a few more holes for the down struts. It was kinda a quick throw on before a trip. I also didn't know I was getting a vischacha present from my dad. The rack is really light and well made. Much lighter than the alternator rack made from steel. This didn't add any noticeable weight.

    (bumping an old thread)

    Any of the bike bag companies do package deals?

    Looking for 2 sets (and maybe 3) of handle bar bag (carrying dry bag), frame bag & seat bag for my wife's and my fat bikes for bike packing. Maybe also interested in the top tube bags for near the stem and seat post.

    So far we've been using a rack, panniers and touring type handle bar bag.
