You may need to add a crash bar to allow spacing for cooling.

Cortech Super Mini with SLR?

Will the Cortech super mini fit a small DSLR (Canon rebel with medium size kit lens) with lens or would I need something like the Wunderlich for that? It wouldn't need to carry much else.

I have the Super Mini and carry a Nikon D200 and it easily fits with a 18-200 lens, extra battery, cards, etc. Case interior is approximately 8" long. 7" wide at the top and tapers down to 5" wide at the bottom. Personally dislike tank bags and only use it to bring the camera along for easy access. It is relatively small and a decent price compared to other bags I was looking at. Also have a huge Touratech bag, but I find myself packing it completely full of lenses and gear I seldom need. Highly recommend the Cortech.

I love my old Wolfcreek magnetic tank bag and am thinking of supergluing or epoxying some magnets under the plastic. Has anyone tried this? Sorry in advance if I missed some post but have not seen it. I did just find one in this thread using double stick tape and washers, I may give that a try. Any other suggestions?

Cortech mini question

My cortech mini is almost too long,the buckle to attach goes under the seat so the seat won't lock down, ideas?

Shorten the straps that fasten the bag at the Headstem up front.
My buckle just pokes out in front of the seat. Very tight fit.
Hope this helps

Soph9, where did you pick that bag up? The Wunderlich site or somewhere local?
Thanks
Paul

Another vote for the Wunderlich bag




The silver blob holding the map/doco holder off the bag is the optional rain cover.

one draw back is that the rain cover is a bit bulky. I for one will not be storing the cover in the tank bag itself....takes up too much room. For now I keep in my top box when not in use.

+1 for the Wunderlich tank bag. I've had mine for a few months now and I am exceptionally pleased. The side pockets are great for the small items and the elastic cords are a nice touch. The water proofing does work although I have not ridden in more than a light rain. Too cold for that yet. It expands quite large but not too much you feel like a duffle is sitting in your lap.

My only complain is that it is a half inch too long. It fits between the key and the seat but tends to crowd the seat if you need to take the seat off. Minor complaint really. I did have the tank, err, plastic part coated with a 3m clear shield to prevent rubbing marks. The bag comes with a roll of clear tape for this purpose, but the 3m shield was inexpensive for the small area.

How do route the rear strap under the seat? With a single rear strap, I don't see where there is anything to loop around under the seat.

Advice?

Thanks!
