eoGEAR Supersize “L” Saddle Bracket
- The Supersize Saddle Bracket provides approx. 8cm (3.125") more clearance than the Standard L-Bracket (#2314)
- This bracket is for really short bike frames, less than about 54cm.
- The Velcro tabs found on all RandoBags (DTS or Dual Tab System), slip through a pair nylon rectangular “Uniloops” found on the top of this bracket (unlike prior versions that had a webbing slots).
- This bracket is composed of two pieces: the 2314 Standard Bracket with the 2353 Supersize Extender plate added on. You can remove the extender plate and use it as a standard bracket for taller framed bikes.
- The alloy frame is made from tubular aluminum (made my Minoura) and the extender plate contains a piece of 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum. The fabric is constructed of tough 420-denier Ripstop.
- All “L” brackets now include an extra pair of “back up or insurance” screws & washers
- The extender plate is available separately (# 2353, $13.00), so you can upgrade existing Standard L Brackets. Send us an e-mail for details.
- The old style bracket utilizes a framesheet of plastic instead of an aluminum plate.
- CAUTION: this bracket extends quite a distance about the top of your saddle, so you must exercise caution when swinging your leg over when “mounting up.”
Any eoGEAR RandoBag will attach to this adapter sold since April 2012 (bags must a pair of sewn-in DTS [Dual Tab System] on the back side).
Saddle & Frame Compatibility
This adapter mounts to the seat rail of most saddles, however Brooks and Selle AnAtomica ALSO require the special Wide Rail Adapter. See this page for other exceptions. Note the side profile photo above: Some saddle rails cause the top of the backboard to sit very close to your “rear.” Others, like my Gilles Berthoud have more clearance. This product is a bit of a “work in progress” as await feedback from customers.
To determine which saddle bracket is best for your size bike frame, visit this page. Frames smaller than 56cm may not work with this saddlebag system as the bag may rub on the rear wheel.*
