...still nothing.
To be honest I’m losing interest in this project too, I bid you godspeed in how you go forward with this.

This would be something to test for sure. With the mountain biking/ camping I do. Plus I am planing a biking trip from Dartmouth Nova Scotia to Belleville ontario. Roughly 1563 kilometers the extra pockets for tools and spare tubes etc. Would help make my tactical vest lighter

I think the best would be to start with a rear carrier: make it a molle base that is shaped to fit over a standard bicycle carrier (this is where that stiffened base as per the tripod discussion comes in) make this like a “U” to fit on both sides of the rear wheel and on top of the carrier. To this molle-base the user can fit any and all EDC that he may like and it keeps the base-price low and the product easy to ship.

Here’s some pics to keep the creative juices going...(added a few motorcycle pics for the young at heart.)

this is my handlebar setup, Up front I have the helmet bag. Which I use to store my tarp and hammock in as well as tools and snacks, then behind it I have the sniper hydration bag. I’ve been telling them for at least a year they need some bikepacking gear. I love their work, so I’ve been finding ways of using what they have and adapting it to my needs. The bag behind it is a relevate mag 2000. I’m going to cut up an old photography backpack to turn the helmet bag into a DSLR bag for the front. The key is that I can grab my camera and shoot with one hand. The front bag is pretty big so I’m sure the DSLR won’t take up too much space and maybe I’ll still be able to have the tarp and hammock in it. I rode 50 miles with the bag loaded on the handlebars and never even noticed any noise or weight.
everybody asks about it. With a few tweaks it will be perfect.
I would like to see a bikepacking line, but until then I’ll just retrofit it to my needs.

Good job on the bike-bags 👍🏻 I too thought the bicycle-bag range a very good addition to 1TG but it seems the idea was x-filed over there in China

I think the market is there, the key is to build the most purchased bike bag first. Do this and then the market will drive the attention. Do it in a revolutionary way and get the attention of the influencers in the space and everyone will follow. These facebook groups I'm in love the bags I've posted in the way I'm using them, which is what lead me to asking about becoming an affiliate and leading me here.

I agree wholeheartedly. 👍🏻

I could put together a complete bike line from products already in production I believe. I just spent an hour going through all the options, Maybe a tweak here or there but for the most part they have everything from a handlebar bag to a cockpit, saddlebag, frame bag, and panniers. I don’t have all of them, but I have half the bags and a bunch of bikes I could do photo’s with if it’s something you’d like to see.

Don’t get too excited...have a look when this tread started and what happened...not a lot.
I’m not sure this idea will ever grow on the powers to be at 1TG. 😕

I’m excited to see what all I can come up with.

Finding a good set of Panniers has been a series of trial and error. At this point I don’t know exactly what I want out of a pannier, secured with no flop or noise, waterproof 20L-25L, angled to minimize heel strike on smaller chain stay bikes, quick release, and molle straps on the outside. A Velcro top portion.

Oooh that sounds just about right 😜
