Good but small

Posted18 May 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good quality, Looks great
Cons: Expensive, really small
This is a laughably small bag. It's not helped by being in three compartments, as each is then even smaller! I take size 5-6 shoes and couldn't even dream of putting a single one in the biggest compartment (that's when I laughed).
So you'll have to improvise. For my short bnb/credit card tour, a change of cycle clothing went in the main compartment, I miniaturised hard on cosmetics etc then finally found a way to securely attach a dry bag over the top (the Cargo Net comes highly recommended, supplemented with a bit of bungee rope). Spares and food went in a saddle bag and top tube bento box.
That said, it's the only bag recommended to fit onto the Roadie Rack, which is the only one I could use, and it does that very well. It slots on and clicks in pretty securely, and makes a pretty good base for aforementioned dry bag.
But I'd suggest you post yourself some clothes to your destination!

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Very nicely put together. Bought to go on lightweight bike for long rides - just don't expect it to carry a weeks clothing!

good product at a good price

Posted14 November 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Looks great
Cons: rear light problems
My only qualm about this product concerns trying to clip a rear light into the strap/ space provided at the bottom of the bag. My experience is that the light ends up being held in a position close to the rack itself and in fact ends up knocking against the rack. In my case that means that the light turns itself off! - which doesn't exactly help with safety.
I have had to put my rear light elsewhere (on my body) as a result.

Well Made but Small

Posted24 August 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
Cons: small
Like all Topeak stuff, this is a very well made product. However, it is pretty small, and can barely hold a tool roll, spare tube, and pack of sandwiches. If yu're a tourist and need a bit more space than that, then you'ld be better off with the MTX DX, or even one of the drop-down panier types. I ordered this one by mistake, entirely my fault, but Evans exchanged it just the same, without quibble.

Small but perfectly formed?

Posted10 August 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
After realising the MTX version was too big from my racing bike I bought this version with the appropriate beam rack. I toured with it through France without problems - it's a little small for my liking but sturdy, well made and does the trick, the lack of waterproof cover (unless you purchase one) is irritating - I actually ended up using a shower cap from a hotel to do the job..There's enough room for your bike kit and bits and pieces in it -I also managed to shove in my flip flops - this bag is not really big enough for clothes.
I also bought the handlebar bag which I thought was fabulous - if I had the choice I would just go for that, it's bigger, comes with waterproof cover and an attachment to hold your Sat nav on.
