Make a Cheap Hard Saddle-Bag for Your Bike [DIY]

3 Feb/09

Add some storage beneath the seat of your bike with this ridiculously cheap and simple hard-backed saddle-bag. It’s made from recycled material, and you’ll always have a place to stash stuff on the go.

Gerry at How to Fix Bikes, a blog about life as an avid cyclist, turned a plastic jar into saddlebag. The steps are as simple as finding an appropriately sized jar, washing it out, and punching holes that line up with the support bars under your seat to anchor it with zip ties. The whole project costs pennies and makes good use of old, recycling-bind-bound jars. You can see in the photo Gerry uses his to stash an emergency repair kit for his bike; the peanut butter jar he used is the perfect size for some small folding tools and inner tube. The only modification we’d suggest is hitting the container with a coat of black spray paint to make it stand out less in comparison to the dark frame of the bike, and perhaps saving a thin sheet of packing foam from your next electronics shipment to wrap around the inside of the jar to cut down on bouncing cargo. If you have a crafty bike-related tip or storage solution, sound off in the comments below.
