Saddle Tool Rolls

November 24, 2014

Tool rolls will all be made from bombproof 1000denier waterproof Kordura. They are sized to take 2 road inner tubes, Allen keys, levers, chain tool and patch kit. They can take 26″ and 29er tubes too, but you’ll only get one in there.

Saddle rolls are this years' stocking fillers. Superbly handy with a wee nostalgic feel.

Snowy Habitat

Here are a couple of pics from Donnie who had a FrameBag and TopTube bag made. He originally wanted to ride the Yukon Arctic Ultra, but sense got the better of him and has decided to head to Mongolia where, no doubt he will ride longer, at higher elevations and at similar freezing temps! Good Luck to him in his travels!

Winter has arrived in Scotland and it seems like it’s time for a weekend of training/testing kit.

Hydrate “out there”

June 23, 2012

Here is a recent bag that I put together that has room for a bladder on one side (where the water tube winds its way through the bag to appear just under the toptube) and has a sectioned off area at the seattube side to store another water bottle or coffee flask for those much needed boosts to kick start you from your bivvy. It’ll be enjoying the sunnier climes of Colorado where it will be adorning Pale Spruce’s bikepacking setup.

All looks like a regular bag here…

The removable divider keeps the bottle in it’s place.

This is where the hydration bladder lives.

Andy at Pale Spruce runs a business that sells super lightweight kits that contain emergency, first aid and personal care items, that depending on what kit you go for will easily fit into a framebag, hydration bag or even jersey pocket. The kit contains pretty much everything you would need for most of the situations/emergencies you may encounter out on a trip.

I’ve been using one of his “out there” kits for both bikepacking and backpacking and thankfully all I’ve used so far is the chamois cream (which is great by the way), no situations to deal with but it’s good to know that I’m sorted if anything does come about.

Here are a few pics I took when unpacking it (note the sunshine);

Everything is kept in a lightweight bag

I didn’t add anything to this for my last trip, apart from my trusty Opinel pen knife. It even has a folding toothbrush and tiny paste- no excuses not to look after your dental hygiene out there! :)

Favourite thing

May 13, 2012

One of my favourite things with making bags for customers is receiving photos of the bags in use. It really makes it all worthwhile seeing the bags being put through their paces and are being used for what they are designed to do best.

Here is Stu’s setup out for a weekend jont in the Cairngorms.

In other news, seatbag designs have taken a step further in progress and should be available in the summer BUT watch out for non-custom half-frame bags coming very soon!!

divider

April 14, 2012

XL bag put together for an Orange P7 frame recently.

This bag has a removable velcro divider to vertically separate the bag into 2 different sections. Not only does this give different compartments to organise your kit, it also helps hold the side panels closer together when it is fully packed. oh yeah, velcro at the left of the picture is to hold tent poles inside the bag underneath the toptube.

 

And breath…

April 7, 2012

It’s been busy at NoLogo recently with lots of orders coming and going, I thought I’d take a wee breather from sewing to publish a few pictures of some of the recent happenings.

This bag has been made to fit around the rear suspension. Note the extra straps on the top tube to hold tent poles. Also, velcro on downtube positioned to avoid coming into contact with a crudcatcher.
