Tallac Designs, King Cage Collaboration – Behold Bottle Cage Storage Pouch
Available through King Cage for $35, the Behold uses a tubular stainless steel construction with a ballistic nylon bag that’s been coated for water resistance. It’s designed to hold a road tube, two tire levers, mini tool, CO2 with adapter and a patch kit. The goal, according to Tallac, was to replace the saddle bag or give additional storage options for touring bike riders that want to fit more on the bike and less in a backpack or trailer. We can see it coming in handy for endurance racers, too.
It’s made in the USA of US-sourced materials. Additional sizes and options will be released at Interbike this year. More pics after the break…
The bag is held in place via two small hook-and-loop tabs on either end. They recommend placing it on the downtube only. To install, you attach the bottle cage of your choice first using the included nuts and bolts, then secure to your bike. Our test sample came with a SS King Cage pre-attached, which made installation on the bike impossible with a multitool…you’ll need a long allen wrench to reach through the bottle cage to tighten it to the frame.
