With the standard fork springs I would bottom out on the tube if I was too aggressive off road. Changing the fork oil weight and springs cured that problem and it was something I was planning on doing anyway. Now this setup works great and does not interfere with any pannier arrangement. Can be accessed from either end and cost about 15 bucks to make. Holds my beadbrakr, irons, gloves, tool tube, and a hand pump.

Any pics would be appreciated.

Thanks

Where did you buy that tube from?

I had that one mounted on the back underside of my top Vario case a few weeks back. Was riding several miles of rough, bumpy dirt roads when I stopped to find the cap had come loose and disappeared along with the tools. No way I could find another cap for it so that was the end of that. So, watch out for that.

Maybe You can get some ideas from these pictures. Id did the same setup.

First of all a simple stainless shelf bracket


Cut it in two pieces and some black paint for the looks.


This is the back mount (before I painted it). You can see it's attatched to the same bolt as the frame for the panniers.


Laying on the floor looking up


It was super simple once I found the right material to work with.

My next task is to find a way to lock it.

My idea was to mount something like this in the screw cap so I could use a padlock between it and one of the existing holes in the tube near the cap (hard to explain on a non-native language so pardon my french...).

Looks like an interesting setup with those rotopax! Your picture is too tiny, have something bigger?

My tool tube setup: was pretty easy to mount with just a few pieces of 'mending brackets' from Ace Hardware.





With tool tube bag:
