What kind of mount do you use when the caboose bag is mounted like that? It looks like it would get in the way when doing a rolling mount.

Saddle Bag Hanger

Old Thread revival.

There are dozens of bicycle seat post saddle bag options available but there are no hangers on a standard unicycle saddle. Here is my solution....

Nice! Of course I want one. I’m assuming you made it. Are you selling them?

You realise this thread is old enough to buy beer in Denmark right?
Reminds me of the other day my boot was starting up a blister on my Achilles tendon. So I asked our medic for a blister band-aid. Long story short, all of them in his bag were from 2003, that is 3 years older than my son

Yes, it's homemade. Don't really plan making a bunch but the idea is there for anyone to make (or have made) their own.

Yes, I was surprised that the subject has not really come up in the last 16 years.

And most of the 2002 portion of this thread was about sweating, not saddle bags! FWIW, I had one on my Excessory Cycle, a 24" Schwinn that I coated with bike accessories in 1981. If I remember correctly, the saddle bag was attached under the seat with a coat hanger, bent similarly to what JimT made, but not as pretty. The Excessory Cycle also had things like a pump, water bottle, fender, hood ornament (on the fender), reflectors, generator working a headlight, tail light and a pair of side lights, tire-driven speedometer, more reflectors, a "Raww Power" noise-making device built into the saddle bag, two bulb horns, one electric horn, battery operated turn signals, a rear rack with bear trap-style hold-down thingie, two bike flags, and half toe-clips.

I don't have any recent pictures of it because the tire blew back in 2001 or so, and I had to take it almost completely apart to get the tire out (Schwinn frame). So I dismantled it completely, and it's been a restoration "project" in a box since then...
