I'm a ghetto cyclist and refused to part with cash for a fancy, one purpose rack for my Carradice saddle bag. Below is my creation:

Cheers all,

Jack,

Thanks for posting that up.

Great little 'home brew', I am all for creating things like this and saving good money to spend on something else. That Carradice saddle support is very very expensive in my opinion.

Have you done any other tutorials like this on bike related fixes?

Cheers
Jem

Nothing else as of yet! I've got a pair of wooden mudguards I'm yet to finish, but I'll get there eventually!

In my eyes, one who eschews spending any money on the essentials and enjoys these somewhat questionably aesthetic ventures.

Saggy bags are the worst, we all know firm packages are far superior.
