Axio Hardpack Tailbag

This is an extraordinary medium size tail pack. It's well made, rugged, good looking and offers flexible mounting features. Unfortunately, it is apparently no longer available (at least in the U.S.) no matter how hard a person searches.

I have an overabundance of tail packs and bags, as it happens, and don't seem to use this one very frequently. So . . . rather than simply let it sit and gather dust, I thought I would offer it to the forum.

My mounting technique, on the passenger portion of the saddle, is to secure the front straps to two strips of Velcro I fastened to the underside of the saddle. The long rear straps I thread through the passenger grab rails and then Velcroed the together. Simple and surprisingly secure technique.

Fair price seems to be $75.00 plus shipping (the least expensive method available if you agree). PayPal much preferred.









SOLD - to HomerSimpson in New Jersey, USA.




Nothing to do with the Tail Pack, but . . .

Bloody hell. This blasted air bag suit has inflated on it's own again!!

Can you really lean your back up against this? I could use something that functions as a back rest.

What are the dimensions?

Thanks!

Chris,

I've used it as a back rest with good results though I don't lean against it heavily. It has worked well for me but it is not firmly mounted rider back brace.

The dimensions are as follows: 13 inches wide at the front, and about 8 inches wide at the rear (it's tapered as the photos show). It's 7 inches high at the front and 6 inches high at the rear. It's 14 inches long overall (that's from the center of the front edge to the center of the rear edge). It fits the passenger portion of my Corbin saddle very nicely, and I've no reason to believe it wouldn't fit the stock, or other, saddle just as well.

By the way, there are two padded zipper pouches on the inside of the hard lid and one at he rear of the "main deck" (it holds the shoulder strap). The main compartment has elastic X-shaped retaining straps with a Fastec buckle.

I can post additional pictures if it will help.

Is there anyway to secure these in a way that you can leave them on the bike? Locks, etc?

There's no apparent way to secure it that a determined thief can't overcome. I simply used the provided Velcro straps - the front pair under the saddle and the rear pair wrapped around the passenger grab rails. No one in San Antonio wanted it badly enough to cut the straps.

On a side note, how do you like this he Corbin seat? I can do about 100 miles on the stock seat before I have to get off and take a break for a few minutes. Looking for a seat that's more comfortable for longer rides.

Saddles are a very personal thing. Some love the Corbin while others hate it. I'm in the "love it" category. It was on the bike when I bought it and I'm glad it was. It's on the firm side but it works for my backside just fine. Having said that, you'll find others who say it's terrible. Unfortunately, there isn't any foolproof way of finding the saddle that works best for you.

I've had no issues with the Corbin on 300 mile rides, but that might be a function of not having a bike that will go 300 miles without refueling, or a bladder that will go that far without defueling! Don't know if that helps at all.
