First off, I didn't buy this at Huck n Roll, just had a hard time finding a review when I made the purchase, and nobody got into real detail so I thought I'd share my experience with the bag.

Pros: Its large enough to carry everything. . . a spare tube, minitool, tire levers, chapstick, patch kit, co2 cartridges. All of it, really.

Cons: No loop under the bag to keep the strap from sliding towards the back when riding vigorously. Wise placement of the innards will keep the strap in place however. The material is not as tough as I'd expect. . . already worn through where the bag rubs against a seat bolt. Other than that it does the job.

This is just not up to par with the rest of Fox's offerings. While it offers plenty of room. . . seriously probably the most spacious bag I've owned, it would definitely benefit from a little more R & D. You can't just make a saddle-shaped bag, put some velcro and a logo on it and call it a day. Not if you have as much of a well-respected name as Fox, anyway. I'll put up with mine until it falls off because it does look dope on my bike when the strap hasn't slid all the way to the seatpost with the bag wobbling to and fro like that song we sang when we were growing up. . .

I hated the idea of buying a seat online. But there are no local shops with a decent selection, I even went to Lance Armstrong's bike shop in Austin over the weekend and it was a no-go. So after much deliberation (mainly because there isn't a single review to be found about this seat) and a chat with a helpful Huck n Roll employ, I decided on this one. Plus the gf egged me on to 'get the seat you WANT to get.' How can you argue with that! Because hell, if I don't like it I can return it within 30 days. I got it today, and by feel alone I was skeptical but I took the stock Bontrager seat off my 29er as quick as I possibly could and got the XC mounted up and dialed in. Took it out for 16 miles and it was def a sweet ride. No sore butt, everything in working order. So I decided I may as well be the first to review it. If your bum is in need of a serious break, give this seat a shot. For the price, you can't go wrong.
