Saddle Pack for Aero Seatpost

Hi all,

I'm looking for a saddle pack that will work with my aero seat-post. Ideally something between 0.5l and 1l capacity and probably just enough space for me to carry a small lock, patch kit and maybe even to get my house-keys in when I'm on the road.

I've had the luxury of a larger seat-pack on my hybrid but I want to keep what I chose for the road-bike more svelte and also trying to keep in tone with neat lines. Sounds difficult to get a steady mix between functionality and design. ;-)

I had a look at some of the Lezyne stuff, also seen a nice one from Specialized. As an outside, there is neat one from Timbuk2 also but stockists of these might be rare for me to go and see what they look like in person.

    i use a topeak micro aero wedge pack with the traditional strap that works well on my giant tcr, for what you need you could size up to the medium aero wedge pack.

    you could add your own strip of velcro to extend the length of the seat post strap on any bag to get it to fit an aero seat post.

    Top peak fits my aero seat post no problems, would definitely recommend

    Best on any bike, doesn't need a seatpost strap, attaches only to the saddle rails. ... ddy-s-m-qr
  • Can't you just put that stuff in your Jersey pocket?

    If not, topeak aero gets my vote too, got one on my commuter.

    Any lock that fits in a pack that small probably isnt worth bothering with.

    Ive a Lezyne that fits just to the rails - seems good.

    To answer the above two questions:

    I'm pretty new to road-biking in an earnest fashion so my clothing is not all stuff that has pockets on the rear just yet.

    In terms of lock, it is more of a 'cafe-stop' lock that I have that I have previously kept in my saddle pack. I wouldn't dream of leaving the road-bike anywhere out of site for any length of time.

    I went and had a looik at the Lezyne stuff at the LBS over the weekend and I like the design of them, they just seemed a tad too small mainly with 0.5l capacity, if there was one slightly larger but not as big that it is a drag on the bike. :)
