Keep it aero

You searched long and hard and saved thousands of pennies to buy your perfectly apportioned, wind-cheating road bike. Why would you attach just any seat bag to the saddle? SciCon has designed a bag worthy of your bike with its Elan 210.

At 210 cubic centimeters, the Elan is just the right size to fit the essentials — tube, tire levers, CO2 and a patch kit. It was constructed of Cordura and features a single hook and loop strap. Unlike many other bags that need a seatpost strap to secure them, the Elan fits so snugly under your rails that SciCon forgoes the seatpost strap. If you have thicker thighs, your cycling shorts will thank you.

The SciCon Elan 210 Seat Bag is available in One size and in three colors: Orange fluo, Yellow fluo, and Green fluo.

Don't let it get wet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I do not seem to be able to find a quality saddle bag. I like the size of this bag. I have ridden with it just over 3 months and had a flat 20 miles from home. I went to change it and the zipper had rusted. There was NO WAY to open it without cutting the actual pouch which was difficult on the road with no tools. In short, keep looking, I know I will...

Lost bag and contents....

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I live in NYC and ride in and around the city. I know the city streets can be a little rough but seriously?? I lost my bag and it's contents today. Got back from a ride and it was gone. I haven't even had the thing that long. Damn. Mutitool, tire levers and $40 in cash lost. Not cool at all.

Little guy.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As others have noted, the bag is small. I carry a single Pedro's tire wrench (in a color to match the bag's piping, of course), a 23-25mm tube, and a minimalistic CO2 inflator w/ cartridge. That's all that will fit and--fortunately--that's all I need.

Works if you travel light

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It works well enough, but this is definitely a diminutive seat pouch -- you're going to have to make compromises if you're used to carrying around a more luxurious flat kit. I find the velcro to be pretty secure -- in that the bag has never come loose -- but I occasionally get some rattling from the bag against the saddle rails no matter how tight I cinch it.

FYI, I can juuuuust barely fit one skinny tube, two small levers, one CO2 cartridge, an inflator, and a patch kit. I'd love a TINY bit more room for either an extra cartridge or a multitool, but the above has been sufficient for the vast majority of my rides.

Too small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Way too small for me - I got one road tube, 2 slim tire levers, one CO2 cartridge, and an inflator (Crank Bros) and could barely zip the bag shut - doesn't really even have space for a car key at this point. With it packed full the velcro seems less than adequate for the job.

Might be ok if you ride with just a patch kit instead of a spare tube. Definitely not going to fit a mountain tube into this pack

Good bag, lost.

    Really liked this bag, but also lost my bag along farm roads. The next day we had flooding, by the time I realized it and would have went back to look for it I would have been long gone. In the bag's defense, the roads are about as bad as they get in Monterey County.

    Great Little Bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Perfect size for the essentials! Just what I was looking for. You can even stick it in your jersey pocket. Holds my credit card, some cash, Pedros Tire Lever, Spare tube, Air Cartridge and Adapter. There is still a little room left.



    I am not sure how one reviewer lost the bag. the velcro is very secure.

    I would return it, but....

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This poor bag met its demise on its maiden voyage. It's currently lost somewhere in the wilds of metro Detroit. I'm just thrilled that it was only holding my spare tubes instead of my wallet when it decided to leap from my bike and live out its days untethered to my saddle. Perhaps its my fault for attaching it in haste but I do have plenty of experience using velcro and I believe my mechanical skills are proficient for the task.

    My Extra Pocket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    This little guy is just right if you usually opt to not use a saddle bag. For most rides my jersey pockets are enough, occasionally I find myself venturing out for a solo century and this little guy is just right to offload my multitool, money and repair kit to open up a pocket for the extra food and a pouch or 2 of drink mix to get me home.



    About the size of a trifold wallet.



    Very slick single strap attachment to the saddle rails.

    What is the depth of this saddlebag. ...

    What is the depth of this saddlebag. Wondering if it will fit a Crank Bros. Speedier Lever that is 144mm long.

    Hi!



    So the "depth" of this bag would be measured in cubic centimeters, which would be the volume of the bag. That being 210 cc. That measures to be 65mm x 120mm x 30mm (Width, Length, Height) approx.



    I don't believe your awesome Crank Bro. lever will fit with the length of the bag, it being 120mm long.



    I researched out minimal bags and unable to find one that would be long enough, unless you went with a tubular tire bag.



    Otherwise you are going to have to look into bigger bags or just slip that sucker into a back jersey pocket.



    Let me know if you need anymore suggestions! I'm happy to help.

    Compact

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great little bag, smal and compact enough room for 2 thighly packed tubs and a tool.
