03 Jan 2010 Secure That Fender Bag!
When you get a fender bag you are sure to see on the instructions to cut notches in your fender to secure the bag to the fender. I did some asking around and many riders said that approach worked while other said their bags fell off on the rough stuff. One guy said he’s fell off and he didn’t notice until miles later…. ouch!
So I took the advice of ADV’r “Crawdaddy” and put my fender bag on my bike where I wanted it. Then drilled a small hole through the bag clips, then put a small zip-tie through the hole to secure the clips. Now I know my bag won’t just fly off and there’s really no need to remove the bag while out on the trail.
