Revelate Designs Frame Bag for Surly Pugsley/Moonlander

Stock status: 1 in stock
A purchase of this item will earn you free stuff.

Technically, your Surly Pugsley or Moonlander fatbike was made to carry a rear bike rack and panniers. But really, it wasn't meant to. And your panniers will never admit it, but they really don't like singletrack much.

Instead, maximize the carrying space in the fatbike's front triangle with a frame bag made just for the space.

A frame bag is a softer sort of bike rack -- an alternative to panniers on a rear bike rack. Carry gear, clothing, food or a hydration bladder. What gear? Your wallet, keys, cell phone, tube, pump, tools... For short trips or bikepacking.

The front triangle is the ideal spot for weight distribution for improved handling -- and a frame bag is just the thing for that spot. They are lightweight and keep your cargo centered low between your wheels and body.

Made of Dimension Polyant VX 42, a synthetic sailcloth. Durable, rip resistant, and tightly woven and laminated to make it highly water resistant. Not waterproof; we recommend using drybags inside if you risk riding in extended downpours or underwater.

Quality YKK brand water-resistant zippers get you inside. The large main compartment has a flexible divider inside, as well as a a hidden pocket. A smaller compartment is perfect for things you'll need to access quickly, like your map, phone, hard boiled eggs, uncontained pudding, marbles for playing marbles, your dugout, that ring you found that makes you disappear when you put it on, etc.

The front is flared a bit to maximize cargo space, and also functions adequately as a downtube wheel spray skirt.

This pack will last you for many miles.

NOTE: Frame bags will wear your frame's finish through repetitive rubbing as the bike is ridden. This wear can be minimized by using clear tape where the frame bag comes in contact with the frame, but cannot be entirely avoided. Wear to your frame from a frame bag is not covered under warranty. As Revelate says, "A bike that gets ridden a lot should look like it gets ridden a lot!"

  • Flared front section for additional storage volume
  • Driveside zippered access to main compartment area
  • Non-driveside zippered access to smaller, essentials pocket
  • Sizes Medium through XL feature vertical Velcro divider in main compartment for load control and gear division
  • White and yellow bag interior for high visibility
  • Water resistant zippers with zipper garages help keep your gear dry
  • Forward pull-tabs facilitate unzipping
  • Strategically placed Velcro attachment points avoid cable guide braze-ons and secure the bag and load
  • Sewn-on Revelate Designs label
  • Compatible with Revelate Designs Gas Tank accessory item
  • Main body constructed of Dimension Polyant VX 42 material for scuff, tear, and water resistance
  • High quality YKK water-resistant zippers (#10 size for main compartment, #8 size for smaller pocket)
  • Padded downtube and seat tube sections protect the load and the frame at the waterbottle boss areas
  • Ballistic nylon downtube and seat tube sections minimize wear for longer frame bag lifespan
  • See images for sizing chart

I bought a size Medium bag (bag itself is size medium; not sure how that correlates with bike frame size), and it fits near-perfectly on a Large 2010 Niner EMD 9 bike. Even if you don't own a Pugsley, if your frame measures close to one of the Revelate bags, I'd go for it. The quality of the bag is extremely high--it seems very durable and yet is impressively light. The zippers and velcro are industrial quality. If I really lean the bike over while cranking up the last few feet of a hill, then my knees do brush the wider front part of the bag--but how often are you really going to do that on a loaded trip/tour, anyway? The customer service at BikeBagShop was top-notch and the shipping was faster than expected. I will definitely be a repeat customer.

I love this bag, its well built and the taper design towards the nose adds useful capacity without affecting pedalling or otherwise getting in the way. There is a useful internal Velcro divider which can be used or not depending on how you pack it, there is also an internal packet to prevent smaller items dropping to the bottom of the bag. However, I did have a compatibility problem with my bag when used with the Gas Tank where the top tube straps clashed with each other. (I'm using a Small bag on a 16" Moonlander). I had to get a replacement Velcro strap sewn in further forward by a local vehicle trimmer so I could use them together, a $10 fix - but not something I'd expected to have to do. (I'm not sure if this was a one-off manufacturing problem with my bag, but as a UK customer I couldn't be bothered with returning to the US for the sake of $10!) I've had to knock a couple of stars off for this as I intend to be using both bags together, otherwise it would have been 5 stars!
