@Andy - I don't know about PDW being a "big company" [guess it's relative], but definitely looks like an identical concept. Now a tiny niche market is divided... Bummer... Sounds like legal issues could be looming.

On the tangent thought of seat bags... What I'd like to see - any bag makers out there listening? - is a seat bag which attaches to the top of the seat stays and better utilizes the space closer to the seatpost and lower on the bike. Not really much volume space to take advantage of on a FS bike, but most hardtails have quite a bit of unused room above the rear wheel.

Edit addition - both designs need to ditch trying to make the twos rods coming together at the seatpost clamp totally rigid. Aluminum rods with holes = stress failure at seat collar. Aluminum ring around carbon seatposts also a bad idea [which is noted by PR]. The seatcollar joint needs to a heim joint or something a bit softer to allow some degree of freedom. Just the triangulation of the two stays coming together at the seatpost is going to really cut down on swaying. Two carbon stays at the bottom of the tray, forming a triangle with an apex at the seatpost joint [plastic/fabric/webbing heim equivalent]... or even attaching at the top of the seat stays... and you have another similar manifestation of the design concept.

If you are looking for a bag manufacture who utilizes the space from seat stays to saddle check out Rogue Panda Bags. Their Picket Post bag does just that.

I am not sure where they camped in the video but my wife and I did a 3 night 4 day trip from Victor to West Yellowstone and back.
Day 1: Victor to Warm Springs Campground via rail trail/backroads
Day 2: Warm Springs to West Yellowstone over Fish Creek Rd to Chick Creek then twotrack over CD.
Day 3: West back to Warm Springs via Rail Trail 
Day 4 Retraced our route back to Victor.

I think it was 240 miles with lots of climbing on day 2

Best of luck

Amazing effort by all TD participants!!!! Special shout to JP who in the past 6 months has RD'ed JP's Fat Bike Pursuit, Ridden to Nome, won the AZT and less than a month ago raced the DK 200 on a tandem. Now, he and what could be 5 people have broken his old record. What a year!!

Sorry if this is gone! It has been a while since it was posted. But I was unsure if this frame was sold or not.

I really like my Arcteryx Cerium LT Hoody. A few oz more that the MH Ghost but with the synthetic insulation in high wear/wet out areas and there amazing customer service I think it is worth the cost.

I have the regular (not angled) Jerry can and the bag just ends up being smashed on the underside so you lose a bit of space, but it does seem to hold fine.

I have been using both the Montane Atomic pants for wet weather and their wind pant. They are great for cycling as they have adjustments on the lower leg to keep them away from the pant tearing chain ring.
