I already have a saddle bag but want to add a bit more stability to it. I came across the above review of another saddlebag which has a metal bracket attached to a seatpost collar. Given one can buy a seat post clamp with eyelets for a pannier for only a few £ I would have thought bodging the above could be quite cheap. Does anyone have any ideas of how to do it? What to use for the metal 'struts'?

Thanks!

    You can buy different Tubus rack struts, they come in different lengths and bends. Another option is this from WOHO.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    The tubus rack strusts look quite expensive to buy for a bodge solution but that WOHO looks very interesting!
  • Brilliant idea. Available on eBay too..

    I had come across that (though cheaper at bikeinn, £22 inc shipping to the UK).

    It has, however, inspired me to first attempt to make my own, similar to this:

    I have ordered some sheet aluminum for £1.49, if I can't make something out of that i'll likely buy the above. My hesitation is knowing how adjustable it is/how it fits with different bags. Also, I have heard some bag things about Woho as a company.
