Saddle bag

I’m struggling to find a saddle bag that works with a seat dropper
I only want to carry car keys and a small vape device.
160 travel front and back on a enduro bike is what I ride. Any 1 knows what works.

    For just carrying a couple of items, pockets are your friends. However, if you do want to go with a saddle bag, you'll need one which just mounts to the saddle rails, like this one.

    Beware of clip on saddle bags. They can come unclipped, no prizes to guess how I know that.

    You could get a suitably sized frame bag like THIS or just use a small CamelBak-type rucksack.

    I nicked one when I was in the states - small to medium bag on the handlebars- stuff is much easier to get to.
    ...take your pickelf on your holibobs.... :D

    jeez :roll:
  • I use frame or handbag bag, they obviously don't interfere with dropper, unless there's a reason for going saddle maybe the alternatives may be OK.
