Coupla points though... If you roll the tops of the Drypacks down the other way (downwards - top to base), they look neater and work better. And be sure to mount the US-5s with the opening at the top - they'll be fine the other way around, but that's best practice. Also, did you use the included Alloy Hook Straps or the compression straps to attach the US-10 to the rack? I can't tell from the photos, but the Alloys will offer more stability and convenience.

It's great to see the gear on such a righteous bike. Thanks for sharing!

Good eye Michael! I just noticed that boo boo yesterday! I was in such a hurry to get back on the trail that I just rolled them up quickly not paying attention.
I have not used the alloy straps as of yet but I will. I was so excited to get on with my ride that I threw everything together in less than 30 minutes! That included drilling the holes for the US-5 straps and packing the bags with tire/trail tools.
Happy Trails
