Best purchase I have made. Lots of space and super sleek and no bluging

Haven't had it long, but love it!  So much space and it fits in so well.  Very easy to use, so much better than the velcro flaps.

 Amen I hated the velcro flap. That problem is fixed now and so much happier

Thanks for posting this, I'm making my Christmas list. Where do you put your race number?

Since we have the same bike...I know if I got one it would look sharp.

What all can you put in it and where do you put your number? My seat post isn't long enough to put it there.

How's the recover going?

I too am happy with my DSW bento box. I wouldn't describe it as super-spacious, but it gets the job done quite well, and looks pretty mean in addition. I typically carry in it CO2, some nutrition, and emergency cash/credit cards. It is made of high quality materials.

Anyone have the DSW box made for the Speed Concept?  Opinion?

It definitely holds 3 Powerbars plus 3-4 gels without bulging. I haven't needed to hold more, or even that much really. Haven't tried spare parts or tools yet.

Number depends on the exact size of the sticker or placard given out. Sometimes across that trapezoidal joint at the seat tube base, other times taped firmly in place on the top tube. Taped well enough that it doesn't flap around, otherwise it'll cut my legs.

I love mine as well - as others have said, it is much more stable than the old style velcro/mesh netting box I have used the past several years.

Yowzers...I was thinking the same thing.  All that money on sexy go-fast bits and that position has the rider sitting up like a giant sail.  Please do yoga or whatever it takes to get down a bit!

really?  all that aero and you're using a round bottle on the frame?

I think I've got an idea for you to put on your christmas list.

I have a DSW Speekpack 480SC on my Trek Speed Concept. Highly recommended.
