This is easily one of the most stable bags we have ever tested – Bikepacker’s Magazine
The Alamo top tube bag is the product of lots of trial and error, trying to create the most stable top tube bag possible. The end result is a front top tube bag that just sticks to your bike, simple as that. The front attachment strap is sewn into the bag for extra stability, and the bottom attachment strap is moveable – so no worries about compatibility with existing framebag straps.
The Alamo is a solid bag which should fit on any bike with no leg rubbing issues. But for those who would like a bag that’s a little bigger, check out the Alamogordo – it’s got 50% more capacity at 1.5 liters in volume, and it’s nearly as stable as the Alamo.
Features of the Alamo include:
- Tapered design to maximize capacity
- Easy one-handed opening and closing
- Bright yellow interior
- HDPE stiffeners in the side panels to help hold the shape
- Foam padding on the contact panels to protect your frame
- No-slip fabric on frame attachments for extra stability
Since our top tube bags taper, dimensions are a bit complicated to write: the Alamo is about 2″ by 2″ in the rear, and 3″ x 3.5″ in the front. It’s 8 inches long.
Alamo Canyon is the official name of the Arizona Trail “Picketpost” passage
