Lezyne Road Caddy Review
Lezyne have a vast range of cycle bags in their range, they label them as "Caddy's" but basically they usually fit under your saddle, have the usual zip and a strap with a fastener or buckle of some sort, that is their usual design criteria, but now Lezyne have changed the goal posts on the design of there seat bag range.
We will be reviewing one of the smallest Caddy's they produce, it goes by the label of "Lezyne Road Caddy."
At first the Road Caddy caught me out....... I was trying to fit the Road Caddy with the zip on the out side,[ ie: so it could easily be opened up when needed just like a normal seat bag], big mistake and
not that easy to achieve. I did not look at the fitting instructions first on the Lezyne website, why I hear you ask, do you need to do that, it 's just a seat bag! it can't be that hard to fit!
It was the zip that caught me out, once I realized the zip is not fitted facing outward but in fact facing inward, it was a simple case of the usual strap under the seat and then around the bag and it was a really nice snug fit.
What can you fit in the Road Caddy? this is where it can be a battle of which items do you put in the Road Caddy, and what do you leave out! we show you here how we tried to fit in a spare inner tube, tyre levers and the compact Lezyne AV11 multi tool, (See our review on the AV 11 here http://harlowcyclingpagegroup.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/lezyne-av-11-multi-tool-review-with.html )
Then we tried to zip up the Road Caddy and refit it to the under side of our saddle.
One of the smallest bags on the market.
Fits really nicely under your saddle.
Enough room for a inner tube and leavers.
Good quality zip and a great loop added to assist in opening it up.
Durable matériel used.
Inner pocket has a first class feel to it.
With a bit of forward planning on what type of ride you will be on, the Road Caddy could be a useful weight saving bag for the saddle.
There are bigger seat bags out there, but do you really need them any bigger than this, inner tube and levers in the Road Caddy, multi tool and everything else in your shirt/jacket pocket!
