Picked up my Kriega us30 today, filled it up with my tent/sleeping bag etc and was able to strap it on longways no probs. Yes it does go past the edge of the seat but as my tent poles were on the bottom inside the bag it does not droop down.
As an added bonus, it was then easy to strap one of my Oxford soft throwovers on top of the Kriega and it still looked neat and was solid.
I always ride solo so no problems for getting away for camping weekends with the gear I managed to fit on

That looks neat, I was wondering how I am going to get my large 80l bag over the seat lol - I am going to have to get panniers so it can rest across them. Hope there are enough places for bungees, I've always relied on the top box frame to attach them to

I'm thinking there might be some hardware store solutions, like maybe an eyebolt for the threaded bosses in the frame that Elvisto pointed out.

That'd get you started, at least until something better comes along.

I think there's no enough clearance to fit the eyebolt.... so, I'm considering some solution:

1) the nearest to Okr is coming from softair, and are the googles retention straps for helmet



need to drill the and remove the clip, and use the two holes to fix by m8 bolt


2) from touratech, are recovery straps removing the nylon strap, I could use only the two bolted (m8) steel retention, but don't know if kriega strap will fit through them



3) still from touratech


this will clamp 18mm bars, but don't know frame bars' size... need to check both diameter and clearances for 4 pcs.

Quick update, after a couple of weekends away I found that when mounted longways it occasionally gets dislodged over large bumps probably because it overhangs. It is more stable when mounted sideways across the rear part of the seat.

I absolutely love my Kriega US 30.
Super easy to install and very secure.
I worked great on the Scrambler when mounted sideways like
previously mentioned.

I have the 30 also but I also have the rear rack so I can mount it longways and works out great. I also have 2 of the 10s for the sides. The rear rack is the ticket.

[walkingdead] Thread resurrection...

I've just plumbed for the Kriega US30, based on this thread and a bit of Google-research. Had a dry run and it seems pretty solid when attached and roomy enough for a weekend getaway. In fact next weekend I'm off on a camp and hopefully will have some pictures of the bag in action to upload.

I initially mounted it length-ways along the saddle but felt in was encroaching on my normal riding position so I intend to mount the bag across the saddle as mentioned up thread.

I think I've sussed the best place for the straps on the frame but I'd be curious to see where you guys have them located?

Expect an update in a couple of weeks! :cool::)

Hi LB

I've threaded the back one's through the flat part of the rear frame near the back light and the front straps are in front of the 'seat tube' (to use a cycling term!? ) so they don't slide backwards. You'll see what I mean when you take the seat off. Here's some quick pics to help show it a little clearer:

1. there's just enough room to thread the strapping through over the top of the plastic tray...

2. I've left the buckles facing out so I have smooth straps against the bike...

3. You can just about see the other frame tube coming off the bottom of the horizontal part of the frame. As I say, I figured this would help the strap stay roughly where it should, i.e. not move backwards...

4. I've left the straps complete (not cut them down as recommended) and fairly long for now, mainly so the big aluminium D clip you thread into these loops doesn't come into contact with the bike at all. I'll do a few trips and see how I go. It's a bit of a work in progress at the moment, hence the thread resurrection...

The Kriega US30 is a substantial piece of kit though. Looks really well made, as it should for the price! I'll bob back after my trip and do a mini review for those interested - not that these don't exist anyway :)
