I can't seem to figure out how to PM, but I want to order this container. Can someone tell me how?
Click on Scribes name below his Avatar and "start conversation".
Lets see some photos of how you guys are strapping these things down to your bikes. Scribe- I should have taken one with grommets- cant figure out the best way to keep this secured.
PM sent. Thanks, joenuclear!
It's easy to put grommets in. Any hardware store will have them. Or buy one of phreaking geeks very well made container holders. Those things are stout.
Count me in for two liquid transport bags / water bags.
I bought a couple of these from scribe. These are pretty tough.
I put 1.5 gallons in one and put it in my side case for a test. After a couple of days, I gave the side case a smell test. Definitely a strong fuel oder in the case.
The bladder is tough and will do what I bought it for, just not in the case with anything that will adsorb the oder.
Nice meeting you scribe and thanks for sharing these!
Why stop at liquids bags ?
I'm thinking since you're sharp enough to run down the liquids bags, chances are you're the man to find us some other goodies.
Ortlieb makes some fantastic water dry bags, unfortunately the cost is commensurate with their brand name recognition.
I'm down for something priced so I can afford two and still eat this week..
Aluminium surplus cans of the right size and shape would be o.k. but there has to be a generic plastic case out there that can be adapted into pannier hard bags at and affordable price.
Ya know, the Rubbermade action packer is the de facto standard on the Motomule single wheel dual sport trailer right ?.
It's light, affordable,,,,,,and a x@#%$#! water scoop in the rain.
It would be nice to have a tub like that that actually kept your crap dry.
What's it hurt to start an "interest" thread to gauge interest and see where it goes from there ?
Count this post as the first "Interested" in the new thread
Interesting. Try using the bag you tested empty in the side case. I'd be curious to know if there is any residual smell from carrying the empty bag around until it is needed next time, which is how I would use it. I'd keep it strapped to the bike, dump the contents into the tank, then fold it and store it in my pannier until the next use. If it is going to stink up the contents of the pannier I may have to find a large ziploc or equivalent to put the bag into.
BTW, I've seen Action Packers strapped to the back of more than a few KLRs. It's an upgrade from the factory milk crate. :)
Inventory update: I only have a couple bags left on hand. If you want one now would be the time to speak up.
I have two unused bags and two happy trails panniers sitting in the garage. Would you like to request an experiment?
Yes, I would.
Pm sent for two liquid bags.
I just filled up one bag with 1.9 gallons of fuel and will empty it in the the next couple of days.
I will report back when finished.
i've used my bag a few times and noticed that it does off-gas fumes while full and for a while after it's empty. I probably wouldnt store it inside a case or with anything you dont want picking up petrol smells.
It's been a month or so empty and doesnt have a strong odor, but you can definitely still smell that it was used for fuel. I typically attach it to the rack, so ho problem for me...but if you want it in a pannier, you'll want to wrap it with something to prevent the fumes from invading your other stuff.
Yes, that's a good idea.
