S5 seat bag

S5 seat bag

Anyone managed to find a seat bag that works with the S5 aero post?
I bought one with my last order but it is useless due to the lump of the rear seat mount. Too small anyway.
I need one that will fit a tube levers a couple of co2 canisters and maybe a multi tool. Any suggestions?

S5 seat bag

Postby Dr_Mutley » Thu Dec 05, 2013 1:51 pm

I'm using the clip in fizik ATM, which works well... I've just changed my setup significantly (saddle up 25mm, and forward 50mm), and are running much less setback than u. The fizik saddle bag rests against the rear of the post but causes no issue...


Alternatively, you could modify the seatpost if your confident u will never use the back hole for more setback ie chop it off. Conversely, the new S3 has a nice single position seat post which fits the S5... I've been thinking of swapping myself....

Another options is a waist or bum bag. Advantages:
- Transferable, so you don't need multiple saddle bags and is therefore cheaper.
- Being attached to you it gets less rattle as you raise you body off the saddle for bigger hits.
- You can put the important things in it that you might usually put in your jersey pockets, so less likely to lose them in a crash.
- Doesn't uglify your bike.

Bloody hell you have got the seat forward. :8
I've thought about a fizik saddle bag but have heard of a couple breaking and falling off. You lose everything then.
That S3 seat post looks promising thanks.

Hmmm I might have to tether mine if that's the case... Although mines done about 40000kms and hasn't come off... Unlike the 6 or more scicon ones I used before the fizik which continued to break off n hit the deck...

I hadn't thought of that thanks.
I'm thinking it might get a bit sweaty and chafe after a few hours in the saddle though?

Didn't/don't notice a problem with it, even when MTBing at low speeds. Cheap to try anyway.

Cant complain about that.
It probably makes it more likely to happen if you load the thing up with a house brick. I've got no idea how much weight they were carrying.

I get a latex tube, 2 CO2s, CO2 chuck, 2 levers, a valve extender, plumbers tape, patches, glue, and a small ratchet & bits in mine... So it's quite functional although quite small...

That's quite a bit of gear thanks :)

Managed to get that Leyzne bag to work

It's a tight fit and it only holds a tube and levers/puncture kit. Better than nothing I s'pose. Would rather it held a bit more gear though.
