Saddle bag: you should be learn the knowledges.
May I ask which rider doesn’t want to play lightly? The feeling that you can go out and ride a electric bike or bike without carrying anything is really cool, but reality doesn’t allow it. You have to bring spare tires, gas cylinders, wallets, supplies, and mobile phones. If you ride a longer distance, there are more supplies, even raincoats and power banks. Riding out, whether it is a short or long distance, the necessary items with the vehicle still need to be carried. For example, tire repair tools, combination tools, inner tubes, etc., these things are still uncomfortable on your back, then you can consider a bike saddle bag.
To put it simply, the bicycle saddle bag is installed behind the seat bag. It is usually fixed on the seat bow and seat post to hold various small things. Although the saddle bag is small and simple, there is still some experience in choosing it. Let’s sort it out for everyone.
Understanding the material of the saddle bag
Nylon cloth: This is the most common fabric on the market, and many mid-to-low-end saddle bags use this material. Generally, there are many colors to choose from, among which black is more resistant to dirt. This kind of fabric is mainly cheap, but it has poor water resistance, so it is suitable for entry-level cars and less demanding riders.
EVA foam plastic: can be used as the material of the hard shell saddle bag, with a sharper visual sense, and nylon cloth, carbon fiber cloth, etc. may be pasted on the inside and outside to increase the texture.
PU leather: The leather has a good texture. Due to its waterproof material, if it is treated with water resistance, its useful life can be increased.
Functions that the saddle bag should have
How to choose a suitable saddle bag, in addition to the appearance preference, still needs to look at the functions it has.
There should be reflective material on the saddle bag, so that it can act as a warning when the light shines on the saddle bag at night. At the same time, because the saddle bag occupies the position behind the seat bag, the tail light cannot be installed or the installation position needs to be changed. Therefore, it is best to place the tail light on the saddle bag.
Waterproof function is also the main basis for selection. In addition to the waterproof function of the saddle bag material itself, it is best to equip a separate waterproof cover for better results.In addition, the tail packet preferably has an expandable function, and the capacity of the tail packet can be adjusted.
How to install the saddle bag package
The last issue to note is the installation method of the end package.
Generally speaking, there are two common ways to end packets. One is to fix it on the seat bow through a special fastener, and then to seat the saddle bag. In this way, the saddle bag can be easily removed, and it is not easy to shake. The other is through Velcro, which can be installed on the seat bag without tools. This kind of installation is convenient, which is slightly less fixed.
