A stiff plastic base of the framebag is bolted to your downtube water bottle bolts. The bolt holes are reinforced with a metal grommet and are sized with tight tolerances to ensure the holes do not blow out from the bolt over time.
PRO: Eliminates velcro straps that interfere with water bottle bolts on the underside of your downtube. Also creates a clean look and solid anchor.
The map pocket is positioned on the non-drive side and is a full length pocket with no depth. Perfect for small, flat objects such as maps.
Internal sleeves exist inside the map pocket for framebags with enough space. A channel also exists to connect the map pocket to the drive side to allow electronic cords to pass through.
Hang loops consist of one-wrap velcro straps that are positioned at the top seam. They are most useful for wrapping tent poles so they dont clutter up the bottom of your bag.
HYDRATION PORT - Standard
A hydration port is standard on all custom framebags and can be found right under the “Made in USA” label. The port is the full width of the bag which is large enough for multiple hoses to exit.
HORIZONTAL ZIPPERED DIVIDER
The horizontal divider has a zipper entry positioned on the drive-side. There is a removable velcro divider that creates a horizontal partition when in place. When opened up, you have full access to the entire bag from the top zipper entry.
VERTICAL DIVIDER - Standard
A removable vertical divider is standard when there is risk for knee-rub. This is usually on large roll-top and triangular framebags that choose not to have a zippered horizontal divider. This vertical divider prevents the bag from “ballooning” out in the middle, while still allowing tent poles to be stored along the length of the downtube inside the framebag.
Lace-up connection to your top-tube. Standard cord color is black.
PRO: Creates a solid, distributed frame connection. Less abrasive to your frame’s paint than velcro.
CON: More time consuming to install/remove framebag compared to velcro.
FLARED FRONT NOSE
Make the most of your packing space with a flared front end. The flared nose is built 4.75″ wide at its peak with a variable 1″ velcro connection on top, a hydration port at the point, and a 2″ one-wrap velcro connection connecting to your downtube.
For Roll-top framebags the opening of your roll will be smaller then normal to accommodate the flared out spine.
DRAINPORT - standard
Because life happens. Mother nature happens. Small enough to keep tiny items inside your framebag but large enough to let water/beer out quickly.
Goodbye camelbak – Hello Mudlust. This framebag is tough, functional, and looks badass. Rockgeist was great in guiding me through the custom options and the whole process was fast and friendly.
Choice of fabric and color is an absolutely amazing attribute to this brand. No other top bag maker offers this.
These custom bikepacking bags goes deeper than picking a color and taking a photo. Everything is meticulously designed and sewn to provide the best user experience.
Rockgeist has big ride experience and vey knowledgable about the world of bikepacking. They spent a lot of time with me regarding many helpful tips for my rig and the bags are ridiculously nice.
