I bought my Tailfin mainly to do some long rides (400k +) and bikepacking trips. I can simply say it works for the intented purposes. I can simply confirm that the tailfin works superbly and is super-stable and a piece of "engineering porn" as someone put it.
Some noteworthy customizations I did:
1. I added a Paul Gino style light-mount to enable me to attach my Garmin Varia on the fork of tailfin. Works perfectly and is impossible to do on a normal bag. Will add the taillight bracket to the tailfin so I free up space to add sidebags if needed.
2. I now use my gravel bike as a normal bike. Thanks to the tailfin, I can put groceries, jackets of the kids, you name it in my bike. The tailfin makes my bike infinitely more versatile!
for a small company, you make a world class product. though (apparently) pricey, it’s a solid investment in quality… but, that what money is for, n’est pas!?
thanks nick, and tailfin!
i’ll complete my rack with the panniers soon!
Having a carbon frame you are limited as to what you can use for saddlebags, I did a lot of research to find these taifinn bags I could not have made a better decision lightweight easy installation capacity size it’s just about perfect I couldn’t have asked for anything better great job !
