Which colour options are there on the Lion?

The standard in-stock colour is black. Colour options are available with a custom frame bag order, allowing you to have coordinated luggage across the whole bike.

Does the Lion come with a dry bag?

The Lion is priced excluding a dry bag. However, we now stock Exped dry bags in a range of sizes that can be purchased at the same time at additional cost.

What size dry bag would recommend?

The Lion will take a dry bag between approx 5 – 13 litres in size. Select a size that will fit under your handlebar without coming in contact with your front wheel. If using suspension forks, make sure you allow or clearance when the fork is fully compressed.

I have a long head tube on my bike. Will the Lion fit?

The Lion straps allow you accommodate an overall stack height (from crown race to under stem, including headset and any spacers) of __ cm

I have dropped handlebars – will the Lion fit?

Yes, the padded panel of the Lion measures approximately 35 cm wide and so will easily fit between the controls on drop bars. The internal width of most drop bars limits the dry bag capacity to approx. 8 litres.

Will the Lion fit around my brake and gear cables?

The Lion is designed to generally sit under your cables, leaving space between the padded panel and the head tube for cables to be routed without significant difficulty. Depending on you precise set-up and load size, it may be necessary to lengthen cable outers to maintain a smooth curve for cables and hoses.

Is the Lion compatible with v-brakes/ calliper/ cantilever brakes?

In the vast majority of cases, we have have found the Lion to fit behind these types of brakes. Some road bikes with tight clearances between the calliper brake and a carbon fork can cause a problem.

Is the Lion compatible with a Jones Truss fork?

Yes, it is. Instead of attaching the lower strap to where a conventional fork crown would be, they can be strapped to the triangular braces just forward of the head tube.

Is the Lion compatible with a Cannondale Lefty fork?

No, it isn’t.

Will it mark my forks and handlebars?

As with most accessories attached directly to the bike, we recommend using some protective tape to preserve you anodised/ painted/ carbon finish. We stock genuine transparent 3M Helicopter Tape, available separately.
