Fat Bike Stingray

Custom-made frame bag for your fat bike

With a grunt, Charlie took one final step forward, shoving the bike ahead of him. The knee-deep snow that he had just spent the last hour battling through had finally given way to firmer, well packed snow and with great relief he climbed back on and set off; the fat tyres crunching satisfyingly against the icy ground with each rotation.

About Custom Products

Custom products are hand made to your specification in our UK factory and come with a 25 Year Alpine Bond Warranty.

We are working to maximum capacity so we are temporarily limiting the number of custom Stingrays we make each week. We will add new stock each Monday.

The laid back geometry and wide bottom bracket of a fat bike allows for a much wider frame bag than a standard bike. Because you remain seated much more to maintain traction in the snow, the bag can be tapered towards the front and as you stand up on the pedals much less, there is a reduced likelihood of interference with your legs, giving you the maximum possible storage space.

Standard
A single opening with a single compartment on the non-drive side.

Divider Compartment Vertical (+£10)
This option will divide the main compartment into two sections with a removable vertical insert. Highly recommended on larger frame bags to stop them bulging out.

Divider Compartment Horizontal (+£20)
This option will divide the main compartment into two sections with a removable horizontal insert. A second horizontal zip will be added to allow access to the bottom section, highly recommended on larger frame bags to stop them bulging out.

Surgeon Pocket (+£20)
Fitting larger items such as pots and pans inside a frame bag can be difficult with a single zipper. Our surgeon pocket is a solution to this: the 90º opposing zips open a Stingray like a patient's chest on the operating table.

The size of your document pocket will vary depending on your frame size. We cannot guarantee that on OS map will fit in it. The map pocket is sewn onto the drive side of the frame bag.

We can add an opening along any edge of your frame bag to allow hydration tubes or electrical wires to exit the frame bag.

We can add reflective piping along the zips to increase your visibility at night to other trail users.

Choose from a choice of VX21, burly 1100d Cordura or lightweight 500d Cordura

A standard winter Stingray is 8 cm but we can make them wider if required. If you want a frame bag narrower than this we would recommend our standard Stingray. Remember contents will cause a frame bag to bulge, especially if you do not have an internal divider.

Webbing Ladder - Allows the velcro loops to be firmly tightened around any tube without any adverse effects to the zips. You can choose where to run your velcro loops to avoid bike furniture and ultimately how many you would like. This makes it much easier to adapt frame bags to fit other bikes you may have.

When combining several pieces of bike luggage together you can use the same velcro loops to attach them avoid the usual problems of interference. Put simply it is adaptable.

Traditional Sewn In Velcro Loops - This is our lighter option and works well, however depending on the width of the frame bag and the diameter of your tubes it can rub and move. In an effort to reduce this movement you can also pull the frame bag too tight causing the zips to be put under strain which can lead to failure.

We can increase the width of the frame bag at the front by 4cm to give a tapered shape, so for example a 10 cm wide frame bag would be 14 cm at the front. This will give your frame bag extra carrying capacity without interfering with your riding position.

Our standard zipper is Dark Grey, but now you can choose red for no extra cost!

We stitch in a thin 1mm thick closed cell foam lining to the sidewall of our Stingrays (the side where the framebag touches the frame). This just gives the framebag a little more structure. You can optionally chose to remove this to save a few grams of weight.

Advice

Our standard Fat Bike Stingray comes 8 cm wide with a document pocket on the drive side. Our webbing ladder attachment system is recommended on all Fat Bike frame bags to ensure a clean, secure fit to the frame.

Our fabrics are very weatherproof but we do not guarantee these bags are watertight as the seams are not sealed. On a long ride water may eventually seep through the zip and the seams and therefore keeping anything that absolutely must stay dry in a lightweight drybag such as an Airlok is good practice.

Brilliant work as always

I have a standard sized Stingray that I bought second hand. It was fine but just not big enough, as the space in the frame of my OO Fatty is quite limited. The wider fat bike version with the flared front that arrived yesterday has almost twice the volume and happily swallowed my cook kit, food for two days, hammock and tarp plus a few odds and ends. The fit is perfect, the workmanship is flawless, the value off the scale and it was delivered in a week. Brilliant guys - just brilliant.

The frame bag dimensions are 800mm flared to 1,200mm fitted to an Orbea Terra cyclo-cross frame used in conjunction with a small stem cell for the water bottle and a fuel pod large (tools inner tubes waterproof). The bag fills the entire frame with the exception of the area above the bottom bracket to avoid the chain wheel mechanism. This set-up meets all my carrying needs for week long hostel and B&B touring. Where possible I leave all items on the bike as takes a few minutes to unfasten everything, using 2 water proof stuff sacks within the frame bag. My initial choice of a bin bag, ended up in a hostel bin.
The frame bag is well made, secure and despite serious downpours water proof, the map pocket is really useful.
Over traditional panniers, the advantages are a better centre of gravity to the bike and a significant reduction in wind resistance. I had some concerns over side winds but have suffered nothing worse than with rear panniers. As legs 'occupy the same space' in a side wind the increase in surface area probably isn't that significant. Weight wise 300grams its less than a pannier rack.
The only downside is you are not immediately recognisable as a touring cyclist reducing the number of cheery waves from fellow travellers.
If tempted to purchase given that a 100mm increase in bag width increases capacity significantly, make a 3d template rather than the 2d suggested on the site, I used a cardboard box. Establish the arc your knees travel through which is the important bit. Then wearing water proof trousers (if you use them) go out for 50 miles with a roll of tape and a stapler.
