Viva saddlebag support rack

Well as I hope to get out cycling next Monday there was one thing I wanted to put on the bike before the cycling season starts which is a Viva saddlebag support rack. And with some free time yesterday I was able to visit a local bike shop that I knew stocked this product. Below is my review of the Viva support rack.

Sick & tired of your saddlebag hitting the backs of your thighs, worried about damaging your celluloid mudguards ?. Well maybe you need a Viva saddle bag support rack, this rack is fully adjustable and is made out of heavy gauge chromed steel with a well designed clamp for holding it in place upon your seat post and it does not require you to remove your saddle when fitting it which is also very handy. As you can see from the photos above it puts your saddle bag in a more upright position which in turn makes it easier for taking things in and out of your saddle bag. Another major problem with using a saddle bag is if its not supported correctly it can damage your mudguards if overloaded etc. As I have not been out riding with the rack fitted as yet I am not able say how stable it is but I will soon find that out on my next long ride.

Hi, I spotted those VIVA saddlebag supports on a few bikes on a recent trip to Japan.I'd love one for my old clunker , is there an on line shop for these ? My next visit will be December to Osaka, do you know of a shop/chain that might have them.
