I found a great deal on an unused Relevate Designs Ranger frame bag (size large). Although it's not one of the co-branded (custom fit) frame bags, the measurements seemed close enough to take the chance.

Since I had a hard time finding good up-close photos of the frame bag I wanted to post up some here for others to find. Feel free to ask any questions.

Here it is mounted on my 2011'ish Salsa El Mariachi size Large.

Looks like a perfect fit.. You can probably fit at least 6 beers in there!

I've been looking at these for everyday riding. Can you stuff a 3 liter camelbak bladder in there?

There's a ton of room. Not sure if 3l would fit in the top compartment only, though. It does have a port for the hose near the front.

Wow. After seeing marp's post, I'd been toying with the idea of adding one to the Unit.
Looks like a perfect solution, yet had absolutely no clue that they're +/- $170! :shock:
Just started Googling rack/pannier systems, and again got sticker shocked.
Now realize that these cater to bike-packing, and early adopters pay top $$$.

None of which is something I'd leave on a bike locked to a rack.
Guess for now I'm gonna be more the over-aged hipster carrying a backpack or
Metro murse. :oops:

Make your own, custom-fit to your frame.

This $55 project starts with enough material to make 2 bags: http://www.pedalingnowhere.com/gear/how ... g-krampus/

I forgot where I saw it, but I recall reading where someone made one out of Tyvek.

Awesome looking project. Maybe I should dust off the wife's sewing machine.

I made one for my UNIT. Turned out pretty good if I may say so myself.

I have fit both a camelback bladder and a osprey rigid 3 l bladder into my frame bag.

Paul, Do you still have the material to make a 2nd?
If so, would you consider making one for my LG Unit?

^ Thanks Paul. Guess I'll knock the rust off my primitive sewing skills.
See that an Axiom DLX rack will fit the disc brakes. My goal is to soon ride the WO&D from DC---->PIT (300 mi.), and I'm trying to find ways to keep the load off my back.

I can measure my template when I get home. We have the same frame.

marps & Paul, appreciate the assistance!
Frame is a 20" Unit, and the inside measurements in inches are;

TT-22
HT-1
DT-26.5
ST-15

Paul, was the kit pretty straight forward, done on a regular machine, or was it a real ball buster?
Thanks again,
FW

Frame bag was simple. The seat bag was more difficult since it had a lot more layers of fabric. Just using a basic machine.
