Bought a storage belt & cable lock today.

I find that I can get back ache riding distances wearing a backpack (bladder etc), but obviously need some fluid on a long ride. So when I saw Aldi have these:

I bought one. Apart from the one I have hold 2 bottles, with loads of space for tools & snacks. Hope I haven't wasted £3.49!

Also bought one of these:
Could be handy for locking helmet to bike or a quick nip to the shops etc.

    Mark - we had a similar cable lock (with an alarm) when we went travelling to Oz/NZ - used to lock up stuff in our tent with it - nothing ever got pinched so think it worked well!

    Annoying that Camelbak style sacks hurt your back - have you looked at the lower sitting Wingnut Bags? Pricey but might help.

    Matt........ you know its my job to big up the wingnut bags on this forum and for you to disagree and say how great camelbaks are....... :lol::lol::lol:

    i have to say though they are great bags and if i could get them for under £4 i would have more few more.

    I really like Camelbaks a lot but maybe they don't suit Mark?

    Of course Camelbaks are better for 99% of riders... :wink::lol:

    I bought a similar lock as my snowboard lock!!

    It now see's Summer(?) service as a secondary MTB lock - typically, when parked up I use it to secure the seat to the frame.

    I also use it as my main lock in the 'secure' compound we have at work - saves on carrying a bigger lock to/from work each day.
    Stumpy, Rockhopper (stolen!) & custom SX Trail II - that should do it!
