SKS Adapter Instructions for eoGEAR SeatBags™
Many eoGEAR bags that mount to the saddle and/or seatpost use an adapter made by SKS-Germany. The instruction card that comes with the product doesn’t indicate how to use it! Follow the steps below:
1. Adjust the length of loose end of the webbing strap so it fits snugly around your seatpost. This is a trial and error process, but only takes a minute or two (photo below).
2. Wrap the strap around your post and using the cam buckle or lever, clamp it shut as shown below. This buckle needs to have a LOT of tension on it and should snap shut. If the strap is too loose, readjust the length as needed. The adapter is secure enough for use on road bikes and also cyclocross or adventure bikes when used off-round on gravel or dirt roads.
3. After you get it adjusted where you like it slip the rubber O-ring over the loose end of the webbing, so it doesn’t come out of adjustment when you remove the bag from your bicycle (not shown). That also keeps this strap and buckle from popping loose.
4. Finally, if you wish to adjust the angle of the bag on the bike, press in the gray button on the side of the adapter and rotate as desired.
