Re: Breaking in a Brookes Saddle

Thanks everyone for the informative thoughts and comments, tried another ride out after applying Proofide, absolute agony again, I've put the original Ridgeback saddle back on, done a few miles tonight and it's suits me so I'll be stopping with that, I must have an odd shaped rump. So, if anyone's l...

Re: Breaking in a Brookes Saddle

Thanks for some of the interesting and honest comments, from the sound of it a few short rides totalling maybe 200 miles might do it, if, after that, it's still painful I'll revert beck to the original Ridgeback saddle and try and sell the Brooks.

SOLD Topeak Handlebar Bag Mounting Bracket (Fixer 8)

Topeak Fixer 8 handlebar bracket, brand new, still in original box. I bought this for my handlebar bag however it doesn't fit due to my bag being pre 2009. If in any doubt have a look at the Topeak web page, lots of info there regarding suitability. From memory it cost me £19 all in however I don't ...

Re: Topeak Handlebar Bag Fixing

Thanks Jonathon, I have seen that list before and none of them would appear to be compatible with the bracket attached to the bag, it's a real head scratcher.

Re: Topeak Handlebar Bag Fixing

I have searched the Topeak web page without success, where shown the brackets on their bags are suitable for the Fixer 8 mount, I got the bag given, just wondering if someone has changed the bracket actually on the bag for something non Topeak??

Hi, I've recently acquired a lovely Topeak Handlebar Bag, it came without the bracket, a little bit of research concluded I need the Fixer8 handlebar mounting bracket which I duly bought. When it arrived it's clear that it's not correct, furthermore the bracket on the bag appears different to the ba...
