    Topeak aero wedge bag, size small. Just get my leyzene pump in it and everything else I need - spare tube, levers, CO2, money, keys, patch repair kit, multi tool.

    I was worried when I bought it because I also went with a small but you would be surprised what you can fit in it.
    I fit 2 spare tube, levers, multi tool, repair kit, tie wraps, Tyre boot, 2 spare batteries, disposable gloves and money
    Its has a clip on for your rear light as well.

    Little Btwin £7 bag from Decathlon, fits neatly under the saddle, unobtrusive, cheap and holds the essentials. Remember the bigger the bag, the more stuff you fill it with.

    Topeak will eventually ruin your bibs, the velco around the seatpost will cause fraying. I've had them in the past but now don't use them as they were wearing a hole in all my bibs/shorts.

    I have a lezyne Micro Caddy Medium on the winter bike and a Caddy Sack for the summer bike. Commuter has full panniers so kit goes in there.

    Still not sure about having Co2 cartridges in the Caddy Sack :( in case i have a crash.

    How does that happen? My bibs are no where nar the seat post - which is *under* the saddle.

    The velco on the seatpost will eventually rub against bibs/shorts. I've had it happen on two different bikes and don't want to ruin an expensive set of bibs. No exactly sure how it rubs as my legs look clear of the seatpost but identical place on seperate shorts and only common denominator is the velco wrap.

    Ah, I think I might know...my legs can softly hit the front of the saddle bag if the bag isn't exactly central, I think at the bottom of the pedal stroke. That part of the bag is near the velcro loop. Now I've cut the velcro so it folds back wthout any excess and so not had your problem.

    I have the Arundel Uno. Fits one tube 2 * levers & a mini multi tool. Hardly noticeable. Otherwise the duo is a bit bigger.
