Fancy Fanny Sacks

Hello....

Aside from them looking a bit odd...

Has anyone looked into or thought about trying one of these?

Finding myself doing more stuff on the CX and wanting to take the bag off my back....

That looks ok as it's low profile and one bottle, mine tends to jiggle around a bit on the MTB but I put up with it as like you say it's good to get the bag of your back. Mine has two 500ml bottles on it.

Also make sure the tension strap stays tight as they do loosen slowly and apart from looking very gangster with your low slung fanny bag it's v annoying keep tightening it

what about a saddle bag, snack, phone, keys, money, multitool, CO2, I can get a tube in mine but alternatively you can wedge it into your saddle rails in a tough ziplock bag. Bottle cages are for bottles, why carry it on your back?

Bottle cages FTW. They're all I use. Camelbak has been left to rot. Gonna order a few more carbon ones from china soon as want some side loading ones and an extra one on the roadie.

Bit pricey, but love my Osprey.

+1 for saddle bag and bottle in a cage combo. Certainly on the road, but I also use it on the winter-proofed hardtail. Not sure how good/secure the side loading cages are (anyone have a recommendation? ) so when on the FSR it's a small camelbak..
I've got the small Ortlieb waterproof saddle bags and as well as being thoroughly waterproof they'll swallow two skinny roadie tubes, couple CO2 cylinders, multitool and magic links etc.
There's also the option of the cage mounted tool bottle type storage things...

Mrs Tinc has skmething like that she may lend you to try out.
For me cages, saddle bag &  jersey pockets are all I need on the roadie.
Off raod it's Wingnut FTW without a shadow of a doubt ;D
