Pretty handy bag – MERIDA Nylon Bike Double Saddle Bag Reviews

posted by Moto7451 on 03/26/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Small size (doesn't get in the way). Has an inner pocket inside each flap pockets. The top of the bag has a pouch and strap that perfectly holds my iPhone 3G w/ plastic case. Three point mounting system keeps the bag in place (I mount the front strap around the head tube).
Cons:
The straps on the three point mount could stand to have a little more adjustability. They will fit a large cross-section aluminum mountain bike top tube perfectly but are a little long for my ChroMo road bike's ~1.25" top tube and narrower head tube.
Other:
The velcro seems to work well but for another buck I wouldn't mind seeing some clips or snap buttons to ensure the flaps don't come undone.
This is what I can carry in mine:
-Cloth case for my Guarder G-C4 (SKU 48879) (these will kinda fit inside but are a smidgen too long to not make the bag do funny things)
-Thin/Short cable lock for my beater bike that no one would steal
-Alan wrench to adjust brakes.
-iPhone 3G (on top of bag).
I'd still have a good bit of room for a couple other things like a candy/energy bar & my wallet. I could also probably put a tube, tire levers, etc in one side of the bag. I can definitely put patches/levers in there even with what I usually carry.
Bottomline:
This is a great bag to get stuff out of your pockets/out of a backpack. I may get another one to attach on the opposite side of the top tube (to the seat post) so I can carry some more small things.
