I decided to install the Behold Tool Pouch with Cage on my single speed bike. Due to my bike’s minimalist design I was not carrying any tools or spare tube in case of a flat.
Installing the Behold is a bit of a challenge. I consider myself good with instructions and able to assemble just about anything, but it took some time to figure out how the mounting screws at the base of the cage fed through the straps that hold the bag in place.
The Behold also came with three bags. I tried each and found that the large bag would slide out of the cage and hit my front chain ring. The small bag just didn't have enough volume for the C02 bike pump, tools and other random items that I carry around so I settled on the medium size bag which fit perfectly.
Once the Behold with the Cage was installed, it felt like it had always been there.
I love the fact that I only have two brazons on my bike, yet I am able to carry a bag full of goodies and a water bottle.
I was happy to find that the cage does not rattle around or make a bunch of noise when I am commuting along to work. It is a solid design that works well.
The other item that I found tremendously useful was the stem mounted bottle cage. I have always wanted to have a water bottle mounted between my aerobars so I could stay low and not sit up to grab my water. The mount was easy to install and has not left my bike since. I used it in two races and it was perfect!
Overall I found the product tremendously useful and a great addition to both of my bikes.
