My Giant E Mountain Bike with 27.5 wheels just fits and no more into my "dogsbody".
We are inseparable on tour. Internationally and NZ. After COVID we go around India together. Bit heavy but tough as. Uses include bike cover, ground sheet, sit upon if damp, windbreak , pillow, never lose washers and nuts on roadside repairs. Adjustable strap KATI.
I recently went on a bikepacking trip in the far north of Japan and I used the Dogsbody bag to get my bike from Tokyo to Wakkanai (it’s the furthest north train stop in Japan) for my trip. It took two days of travel and five trains to get there, and the Dogsbody bag held up through all of it. I have a rack attached to the back of my bike and I could still zip it closed. It took some finagling but it happened. As a newbie to bike on train travel, I really appreciated the instructions written on the outside of the storage bag, The only thing I found was that I think my arms a little shorter than the typical user as I couldn’t use the shoulder strap and hold on to the side handle at the same time. I’d love for the shoulder strap to be adjustable to allow for shorter humans to use all the handles! Overall, I’m delighted. Thanks Ground Effect.
Another great NZ product from GroundEffect...quality made, more spacious than expected (fits Trek 520 tourer) ,so a mudguardless roadie would be easy to pack....I just need the time away from "duty" to enjoy its benefits more. Well done as always
Bought this bag because I needed to fit my 29er. I had an earlier model which was fine for the 27.5 bike but this model was larger in size. Plan was to take bike down to Queenstown for the trails. Instructions to pack bike simple and quick. Used packaging from the bike shop to booster protection. Plastic tube for axle too small, but I cut up plastic piping I had lying around which worked well. I agree with other reviewers that reinforcement needed on the bottom of the bag as I had a few holes from wear and tear from where the fork was placed. Recommend for later upgrades of the dogsbody that it has extra lining along the bottom. Did struggle to get the fork in as bag could've been made a bit wider. Otherwise this is a great option. Bike arrived safely at the destination. Would have given 5 stars but for the hole in the bottom created by want I think was the narrow part where the fork goes I have given 4 stars.
