Tool/Saddle Roll: by Road Runner Bike Bags - Proper install techniques inside!


 The Tool/Saddle Roll is one of those simple bike bags that will work all day, everyday. Sometimes though, a few tips and tricks are helpful when getting that pesky little roll to sit nice n' tight under your saddle. Over the past few years, we refined our install method and would love to share it with you here:

  1. Squeeze the air out of that tube and roll it tight! Make sure you do not damage the tube with the valve stem as they tend to be sharp!
  2. Simply load your tube and tools and place it in the center pocket & secure the flap down with the snap.
  3. Tighten the buckle strap around the roll. Tighten the strap as much as possible (be sure to use the adjuster tri-glide to secure the excess webbing). Buckle the Tool Roll closed off the bike.
  4. Disengage the buckle and string it through the saddle rails. Feed the male buckle through the left saddle rail and the female buckle through the right saddle rail. Wrap the straps around the Tool Roll and buckle together. You will find that the webbing may be tight and the buckle may be difficult to install but not to worry, that is all part of the process.
  5. Shred!!

If installed correctly there would be no sway or sag of the roll. It should be tight up against the saddle rails and the contents should be secured.
