I needed a new seatbag that could hold roadbiking essential and this works great. It holds a spare tube, a patch kit, an inflator, a few CO2 cartridges and a compact too. Plus it's reflective and has a loop on it to hold a blinking rear light for dusk rides.
This Banjo Brothers Deluxe Seat Bag puts the finishing touches on my bike build. Spare tube, crank brothers multi tool and two Co2 cartridges all fit with a little room to spare.
It may be small, but I fit two 700 x 25 tubes, two C02's with inflator, two tire levers, a multi-tool, pain relievers, a $20 bill and something else I can't remember. I tucks in and without any supporting testing, feels pretty aerodynamic. I love this thing.
Excellent seat bag. Exactly the right size for a multi tool, tire, levers, a small bottle of lube, and small pump. Maybe a spare power link or chunk of chain, and you can still stick your car keys in there.
Mount easily, seem very secure. No problems with them. Tail light mount option. Very water resistant.
Just don't get white. It starts out sexy, but quickly gets gummy and doesn't wear well. Other colors should be a lot better as the white seems to be a rubbery sort of finish, where as the others are a heavy cordura nylon type finish.
This seat bag is great. It holds 2 tubes, patch kit co2 inflator and two cartridges, plus my lock and allen wrenches. I really like the catch for your keys. Never again will I worry about having my keys fall out when I go to get things to fix a flat. Great produck and well made.
Excellent quality and workmanship. The fit on the bike is secure. Well designed and thought out. Made by a company that understands cycling. This is the 2 nd Banjo Brothers product I have purchased. The 1st is the medium sized backpack, again superb quality, workmanship and functionality.
I've had this out for several hundred miles now, some of that in cold, wet conditions. It has held up fine so far. It is big enough to hold a spare tube, levers, co2 and patch kit with no problem. I think I could get another cartridge in there if needed. Looks good and stays put! Just what I needed! (I replaced another, higher end bag that did not attach to the seat post since It was always coming loose.)
I planned to ride a century but didn't want to depend on rest stop food offerings (certain foods just don't settle after mile 50). I stuffed my jersey pockets but looked like a deflated Michelin Man. So I ignored Rule 31 and purchased this European Man Satchel. It's big, swallowed everything I dared dump in it, but cinches up nicely and is barely visible under my Selle Italia Flite.
Of course any seat bag is an abomination. But this one is a useful abomination. And my Jersey mainted it's sleek, aero, Ero-pro look (or at least what was possible given the body it was draped over). What more could you want?
On first opening the box, my reaction was this bag is too small to even hold a tube- just ship it back. But with a little patience I worked in a tube, tire irons, a CO2 cartridge and an allen wrench set in the size small bag. So the bag is big enough for what you need to change a flat or make minor repairs on the road, anything else put in the jersey pockets- that's what they are there for.
perfect size if you get the medium. fits a spare tube, tire levers, co2 applicator/canister, emergency spoke kit, tire boot, patch kit, multi-tool AND a pocket knife. you'll be the most prepared cat on the road-plus it looks great at night.
