    @Speicher . Used the bag for the first time today, fitted without problems, I had to move my computer. The only thing I noticed was the bottom strap isn't long enough for my bike, it's supposed to go round the head tube but my cables get in the way, I'd have to seriously rearrange my brake cables to make it fit. For this ride the strap was loosely wrapped around my cables. It took my phone, glasses and spare tube with a little bit of room to spare. On the road I didn't particularly notice it, it was jiggling around a little bit on the rough surfaces, but not enough to worry about.

    @dave r
    Thank you for that update. It looks the right size for what I need to carry; phone, glasses, keys and some cash.

    @dave r Does it compress the brake cables at all? I found that when I strapped a sleeping bag to my bars the back brake was slightly compromised and sticky. I am going to need to work out some kind of spacer to keeps the straps away from the brake housing.

    No, it just rests against the cables, I think if it weighed a bit more it would cause a problem. I'm thinking about a bracket myself, something similar to the cable stop ones we used with centre pull brakes. Similar to these.

    I recon something like this https://www.sjscycles.co.uk/brakes/254-tektro-alloy-cable-hanger-w-adjuster-black/ and I could route the bottom strap round it, I'd just have to stop it slipping.
