Plan B Saddle Bag
There’s saddle bags, pouches, tool bottles and kegs and then there’s the Plan B.
Rider developed and functionality focused, the appropriately named Plan B is your backup, your ‘just in case’ and your last resort. Unlike regular saddle bags, this bad boy is fully customizable, with its compact size and design presenting a sleek necessity for your Road or Gravel Bike.
Let’s be honest, huge saddle bags scream ‘hubbard’ and are about as attractive as white lycra on a middle-aged man as compared to the sexy, yet unassuming Plan B. With over 20 different colour combinations to choose from coupled with a water resistant 1000D shell and PU coated water resistant zipper, the Plan B will keep your essentials dry during light showers and looking fly on bunch rides and commutes.
Its intuitive magnetic clasp gives the Plan B a quality feel with a single strap design adding to the overall sleek simplicity of the product. With the capacity to carry 29er tubes, a multitool/tyre levers and a CO2 canister as well as a trusty $5 just in case, the Plan B is your minimalist alternative and the difference between walking or riding home.
We hope you’ll never have to use it, but while it sits on your bike- just in case- at least it’ll look the bomb.

The Plan B dimensions are 130mm long x 80mm wide and 60mm deep.
The Plan B Micron shown below has a length of 100mm, a width of 80mm and a depth of 55mm.
To get the most from you Plan B or Plan B Micron it helps if you remove all the air from your tube before putting them in. This is really simple and can reduce the volume a tube can take up by almost half. Remove the tube from the packaging and unravel it, open the valve fully and hold it from the opposite end. Whilst holding the opposite end to the valve start to roll the tube down towards the valve removing all the air. Once you reach the bottom and all the air has been extracted screw the valve shut then put the plastic cap back on. Now it’s time to re roll the tube back up starting from the valve this time, when you get to the end use the rubber band that came with the tube to hold it all together. Job done.
A quick mounting tip is to pack the Plan B or Plan B Micron with everything you would like to carry on your ride. Adjust the mounting strap length until it is snug but not tight around the bag, you should be able to just get your little finger in the slack. Then route the mounting strap around the seat rails and connect the magnetic clip shut with an audible “click”.
The perfect fit should allow for zero movement, if it does still move shorten the strap slightly.
