Homemade Frame Bag
Here is my first attempt at a frame bag. It turned out to be a very nice bag that is simple, and water resistant/proof (it has been sitting out in a couple of rainstorms, and then inside is still dry!). It is made from a basic ripstop fabric from the local fabric store. There is one zipper and nine holds (and I will probably put a couple of more, we just ran out of 1" velcro). It should hold a lot of goodies. Luckily, it's on a Fat Tire bike so I was able to make it five inches wide in the front and taper to four inches on the rear. Hopefully, I will be able to try it out this coming weekend. My future plan is to make a matching seat bag and handlebar sling which will hold a sleeping pad, and raft or shelter. I will upload more pictures when I get them done!
