Founded in 2012, starting out making compact travel cases for bicycles, Orucase is launching its redesigned Mini Frame Pack. These newly redesigned packs are made with Challenge Sailcloth EPX200 and have some cool features and a price tag that is almost half the cost of their Design Labs version of the Mini Frame Pack that we covered last Summer.

Orucase’s design philosophy is to “ensure that riders can focus on their ride without worrying about gear”. The Mini Frame Pack has an aerodynamic design and provides that extra bit of storage you may need without compromising your ride.

The Mini Frame bag seems like the perfect solution for the cyclist that isn’t a big fan of handlebar bags. There are also some subtle black 3M reflective accents along the bottom side of the bag to help with visibility at night.

If you are going to give up a water bottle inside the triangle to accommodate a bag like this why not use all of the available space then? Remove that one cage and get a bigger half frame bag.

this is not a bikepacking bag. This is more for general riding when extra storage is required (like for temperature variability when you need to stash layers as the temps warm throughout a ride). I haven’t used a frame bag. I fear my legs would brush it repeatedly and it would be torturous. Anyone with experience with this style of bag that can disabuse me of that concern?

It all depends on the frame. I have a few of this style bag, and on my frames I can still fit two full size bottles with some creative cage placement. Some bikes all it takes is an adjustable cage like the WTC Morse Cage, while others require a WTC B-RAD adapter and a side-load bottle cage.

I’d also argue that any bag is a bikepacking bag depending on your needs. On my last bikepacking trip, I used one of these because I needed room for two bottles, and didn’t have anywhere else to put them. I also needed all the bag space I could get, so this allowed for two full bottles and inside-the-front-triangle storage. I used a Tailfin Aeropack, mini panniers, and a Salsa EXP anything cradle up front to complete the setup. Worked great.
