How much weight do you have in your bag? Personally I don't like significant weight high up at the front as I find it affects the steering.

A similar approach could work going off the saddle or seat post though where it would be less likely to affect the handling.

Normally about 4 lbs, something like that. No influence on the steering - the gravity center of the bag is close to te steering axe.

Why don't you attach the bag directly to the handlebars?

i would assume if he did that, he would be more likely to hit his knees on it or it to get caught and tangled in the brake and shifter lines. plus, it just looks cool like this! and you can never have enough paracord.

Thanx mountaineer! Ever tried to attach such a bag to a handlebar? Impossible to do correctly without messing with the brake cables. This shank keeps the bag away from all that stuff!
