Good find---------I was looking into trying to adapt a pair of BUMW ones, but now you have shown me these MMMMM :confused: now I'm not sure. They seem to stick out a bit, and come the first/second off whilst off-road they may be trashed, saying that, they may prevent damage I suppose. I will watch this and see if there is an importer and then add them to my Crimbo wish list in due course.
Don't you just hate the tinternet :p

They look ok , if you were doin a big trip away they might come in hand .

Double L I think it would depend what you had in the bags as to where you'd do damage or not to the tanks whether off or on road .

I have one of those in my attic IIRC, from on old MTB back in the 90's. I'm sure it has lime green on it somewhere though!! :eek::D
Here is the photo as promised of the framebags I bought off eBay for £3 each!! Linky

They are not water proof, but useful addition for tools etc

Enjoy

Cockney,I haven't seen these bags and have no idea how good the seams are etc so....although i recommended a push bike frame bag,i would be reluctant to put tools in them.
One reason would be that tools are harder than my tanks and in a spill could puncture it? you could put a thin sheet of ali in there on the tank side but beware of sharp edges.
Another is that the seams may split and lose the contents?

Personally i would be looking at putting a couple of spare tubes in after putting them in a bread bag with talc powder and something lightweight yet bulky in the otherside.

On the other hand,i could be talking crap on a Sunday morning.

Agreed. The bags are lightweight and would most likely fall to pieces with any weight. Also consideration re damage from tools to side panels. I will put some tape on to stop any scratches as they will move and will get dirt behind.

I have just loaded mine up with 1st kit in a sealed bag for waterproofing.

Think I just put some snacks in the other as you can easily access when on bike.

As for being crash proof. We'll see...

Cheers

I've orderd some slightly more expensive ones which may turn out to be better quality or just more expensive for nowt :rolleyes:

I had exactly the same idea ......... 1st aid kit one side, probably tubes or snacks the other which makes more room in my back pack and less weight on me ;)
