|Jay's 9 Zero 7 Snow Bike Fully Loaded|
Jay P asked me to create a custom bag for his new 9 Zero 7. This will be the second time I have made something for Jay, and I am super excited that he asked me.

Jay and Tracey came over to my house to give me input on what he wanted in this bag. Because his new bike is a compact frame, he wanted a wide frame bag with some particular features. The bag I made for him is 3 inches wide with plastic stiffeners along the width to help give the bag some form. There is also a stretch panel on the drive side - this should help give a bit more room and hopefully ease a bit of stress off the zippers. The non-drive side has a flat pocket for small items like maps or bars. Jay also wanted a carry handle on the top tube velcro straps and very wide velcro on both the top and seat tubes rather than just 2" velcro straps. He still has access to bottle cage braze-ons on the outside of his down tube if he needs them.
I am really excited on how this bag turned out. And I am looking forward to hearing how it performs for him in the Arrowhead 135 - his next race. Go get'um Jay P!
