Tool Tube - where do you fit it ?
« on: September 14, 2019, 06:09:57 AM »
As the title suggests, 800 XCa with the pannier rails or does anyone have an alternative toolbox they can recommend ?
Thanks.

I made a couple of brackets attach to bolts on rails to tool tube mounts.

Not a tool tube looks great what is that?

Looks like a Peli Case, got a couple for photographic gear. Theyre the go to for strong, robust, waterproof cases.

It is a knock off Pelican case from a local electronics store. All up the case, alloy bar and bolts cost around AUD$40.00. It contains an electric pump, tyre plugs, CO2 cartridges and some tools. All I need. The only other tools I carry are my RACV (motoring club) Extra Care card and a credit card.

What size case and how do you get it off when you need it?  Looks very securely mounted.

My XC had tool tube installed when I got it. Can's say, is it good place or not, cause I have no experience.

Thanks for that. I've got a 2012 roadie with panniers, so nothing convenient to attach p-clips to.  It looks like I just might be able to fit it using some longer bolts on the pannier mounting holes, where you've got yours mounted.
