It is intended to be mounted on the rear saddle loops, but you can see it touches the rear fender and rolls under the seat somewhat. It is also difficult to fasten the rear straps and the contents of the bag will dump out if not careful. There is a metal support available for this bag made by Bagman, but it is expensive and currently out of production. Viewing pictures of the Bagman support on-line shows a rather simple device.
I decided to attempt and make my own to fit the Brooks B-66 saddle I have on this bike as well as several others. I purchased some 3/16" steel rod from Home Depot. These come in 3' lengths and can be had either unfinished (rusts easily), or with a zinc plated finish. I got one of each for $2.77 and $2.93 respectively. I took some measurements off the bag, bike, and saddle and started bending. Since I anticipated some trail and error until I got the right fit, I used cheaper unfinished rod first as a prototype.
|This is the prototype. It rests on top of the B-66 rod that goes between the bottom of the springs, then hooks between the double rails.|
|This is the bag and support. I used a Velcro strap to secure the bag to the seat post. The strap goes through the leather attachment patch on the bag and around the support.|
|Bag is now supported off the fender, and the straps are more accessible.|

I want to make some minor adjustments to my measurements, then make another one, using the zinc plated rod. Total cost less than $3.00.
