Sunday Early Edition

It's all in the bag.
Almost all of it.
I've had to take out some of it, but most of it fit.
In my new seat bag.
I forget where I saw this, but it looked pretty good so I thought I'd try it.
The Lezyne Micro Caddy M:

Whoa! that's a goofy lookin seat bag!
That's what I thought too, but I think I'm sold.
First of all, them flaps you see on the sides are how the bag attaches to your seat rails.
I sort of like that word.
Flap, flap, flap.
So anyways, the bag itself is much smaller than my old Planet Bike bag:

I was able to however, stuff most of the stuff I had in my old bag into the new bag.
Well okay, my Park Tools I-Beam didn't fit, so I had use a small mini tool instead which leaves me without a chain breaker, but I'm working on that.
Still sort of amazing to me all this stuff fit:

If you squint yer eyeballs at the the flappy image, you can also see a small outer pouch near the zipper where there is another compartment for a multi tool, I just stuck the tool in the bag with the rest of the stuff so I can use the compartment for something else like keys.
So anyways, you take them flap, flap, flaps, which are made of neoprene or some other stretchy stuff and wrap them around your seat rails and voila!

Much better to show off the seat post goodness!
It's also much more secure and not well, flapping around like a regular bag.
The bad news is that there's no strap thingy to hang a light on in back, so I'll have to mount one on the stays.
I like it for it's very compact and clean looking.
Well worth the twenty bucks or so to have it shipped to your door.
Okay, there you go, Lezyne Micro Caddy M.
Oh, the M is for medium, they make a smaller one, but I really don't know what you'd be able to stuff in there.
Well, maybe you don't carry as much stuff as me so the S might work out for you.
I'm trying to reduce the amount of stuff I ride around with and put it well, all in the bag.

My Specialized seat bag attaches to the seat rails and is "instant on/off." I'm surprised nobody has copied them because it works very well.

What Specialized bag you got?
I was just at the LBS this morning looking around.
I have a regular S seat bag, the expandable one.
