Q&A: Saddlebag support

I’ve bought an anatomical saddle after years riding on Brooks leather ones. It is comfortable but lacks eyes under the seat to support a saddlebag. I want these bag loops

Tom Smith

Saddlebag eyes are indeed a rarity on today’s saddles, which is regrettable. If you propose to stick with your new saddle, you can fit saddle bag loops from manufacturers such as Brooks and Velo Orange to the rear rails. Alternatively, take a look at the Brooks Cambium Carved, which sports an ‘anatomical’ hole in the middle of the standard Cambium’s very comfortable upper.
