Brooks Flyer Seat Bag Recommendation
« on: July 20, 2020, 06:38:24 pm »
I’m switching from a Brooks C17 to a Flyer. My Revelate Terrapin will no longer fit. Any recommendations for a backpacking style seat bag that will work with a Flyer?  Clearance is a bit tight at 6-1/2” from coils to tire.

I might have to rethink my pack and go to panniers.

When I put my touring/adventure bike in bikepacking mode, I use a Carradice Barley saddlebag w/ a Brooks Professional saddle.  Great combo; I like mixing/matching classic and modern stuff w/ the overriding requirement that things just work and work well without hassle (and look good too!).  The Barley along w/ a 1/2 frame bag, handlebar mounted bikepacking style tent carrier, Revelate feed bag, cargo cages on front fork and rear rack/panniers when/if necessary looks the bomb and works great.  I will admit that I am generally not a huge fan of bikepacking-style saddle bags from either a functional or cosmetic standpoint.
