Parts availability is awful too, I'm trying to get some simple mavic bits and there's like the 3-4 week wait time.

How awful is this as a way to carry bikes over long distance compared to a roof rack?

What about a bottle cage tool holder Swede? I'm using this one https://www.probikekit.co.uk/bicycle-tyre-tubular-accessories/vittoria-zip-case-bottle-cage-tool-bag/11435986.html

I've never had an under saddle pack that doesn't rub on my shorts and destroy the lycra

I have the silca seat roll myself and it's really good. easy to mount and fits a multi tool, levers, spare tube and co2 cartridges easily. even if the tension comes loose a bit just turn the boa and everything is tight again. no velvro shit etc.

Swede have a look at the ones that have a quick release clip? Its not as low profile, but bought an Ortlieb micro two the other day, and doesn't rattle around but won't be flush with the bottom of the saddle

I've got a specialised micro wedge, it's pretty small but really secure and doesn't rattle around, I could fit a tube, a small multi tool and some leavers in it. The do a mini version too which I think is just a bit bigger.

Laughing out loud I hear that.

Doubt it'll be your thing but I used one of these for tri's so I could carry 3 bottles and use the 4th to hold a bottle tool bag. Is useful for longer rides, no need for refill stops.
