The Mudlust Roll Top offers the same great durability of the traditional Mudlust in a roll top, zipperless version. The decision between roll top and zipper entry is a personal one. The main advantage of a roll top is that it eliminates the risk of a blown-out zipper when over stuffing your framebag. Zipper blow-outs can happen, but on a Rockgeist designed frame bag with quality #10 YKK waterproof zippers, it’s a rare event. In the three and half years Rockgeist has been selling framebags, zero have come back for zipper repairs. However, with a small amount of user neglect, harsh elements, and some bad luck, blow-outs can happen. The disadvantage of roll tops? Entry in and out can be slower then the zippered alternative.
The standard design for a roll top is positioned on the drive side of the bag and still allows a zippered map pocket on the non-drive side. Straps to secure the roll top closure will be positioned close to the center of the top tube. This is essential to allow compatibility with your top tube bags (both stem side and seat post side).
- Variable velcro attachment to the top tube near your stem. This allows compatibility with your choice of top tube bag (including the Cache)
- Drive-side roll top access
- Hydration hose access
Hang loops described: The hang loops are most often used to hold tent poles or a long bike pump. They can be useful in large frame bags to help prevent the tent poles/pump from becoming buried at the bottom of your bag. They may not be as useful for a Mudlust designed for a full suspension bike due to the small inner triangle and non-linear top tube shape.
