"NOMAD BIKE BAGS"....not particularly original I know but need a name and have a rough logo already.
Facebook page and possibly website up shortly as I hope to sell direct to the client.


I think Nomad is pretty much used up

Hijack if anyone wants to sell their totally ridiculous zipped Giant Loop Coyote please PM me !  :deal:

I sense you talking to me  O0.

I don't have Coyote, I have Giant Basin (significantly bigger than Coyote). AlanB used to produce local version of smaller U-Bag (from that rip-stop canvas I think) -will be probably cheaper. Maybe check with him if he still sells them.
No anyone with a Coyote feel free to let me take it off your hands. Would like the original pipes and pcv if you have though  :biggrin:

Awesome Idea  :thumleft:

I did a basic drawing for an XR650L tail bag that would be wider / higher with plenty more volume so that you could fit all tools and a spare tube or two into it a while ago. No-one in the Durbs region seems to be into making these.
This fits an XR / DR / KLR type of bike and maybe a few others. What are the chances you could do something like this? Taking 4kg of weight out of my backpack and having it in the right place would be a big bonus. If I could buy
this from a bike shop I would.

Drawing attached for your information.

Had a lot of queries about bags for the top of panniers, so we made up some samples.

Like so..!

AWESOME feedback...thanks guys.
I think the product is excellent value for money but you always have that niggle of doubt that perhaps your head is up your ass and you are really not going to sell anything.

Watch this space...more products coming!!

CANNOT beat Giant Loop great basin... Remarkable how much it holds, and how it holds it so tight to the bike, with zero movement, and low centre of gravity.
If you are not falling, you are not trying hard enough.

P.K. it looks nice, but wouldn't the water get in through the zipper? I understand there is flap over it but the sides of the flap seem exposed?

You need to mount it so that the flap is not horizontal at the top, but is more to the side and has a slope to it.
That way the water will run off, not run under the flap.
Mounted across the bike, the flap must point to the rear of course.

Xpat you are correct...this is the first PVC one my staff did and the flap is a tad short....would be rectified on anything I sell, but had some requests for pics, so that did the job.

Mudfucker your comments are correct, but if the flap is correctly in place the bag can be upright...no problem.

I personally use a bag EXACTLY like this and have been using the same bag for 7 years...tough as shit, but not a fashion item !!

Waterproof zips are available but do not last as well as the big heavy duty YKK I use....so it`s a bit of a trade-off, but one that I`m happy with.

The response to this and my vendor threads has been great and I well chuffed with the response, input and orders to date.

PLEASE..to make things easier and obviate a barrage of extra correspondence would all orders and P.M`s contain the following:

Full name

Address during working hours where delivery by the courier can be made
cell number.

Cheers and thanks for the support and encouragement received to date.

I`ve had a number of requests to make up a bivvie roll similar to the old SADF webbing.
Pic`s attached for comments / criticism.

I specifically made it a bit longer as I always battled with the standard size.
