Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?
The cost of our products depends entirely on the size, type of material and the complexity. Therefore, it is difficult to give an indication without knowing the specifications. Would you like to get an idea for the price of your bag? Please, contact us with your information and tell us what you are looking for!
How do I send the measurements?
No more handmade cardboards and measuring every lengths. This is where magic meets technology. For a custom framebag, we only need the inner-length of the top tube and a perpendicular picture of the non-drive side of the frame.
With these data, we can construct a 3D model to work on your perfect bag.
How long does it take to make a (frame)bag?
In all cases, brainstorming and discussing about your custom bag takes 70% of the whole process. Once every detail has been double checked and confirmed and the payment has been received. We can expect to deliver your bag in 2-3 weeks.
However, we are both full time students and there will be occassions where the production time can be longer. We will inform you if that is the case.
Are the bags waterproof?
No. All the fabrics that we use are completely waterproof. However, once you start stitching the fabrics together, you are making micro holes inside the fabric for water to find it’s way in. To enhance the Water Resistance of the framebags, we use seam seal and raincovers to keep most of the water out. We do offer waterproof zippers, but in our honest opinions, we do not favor them for 3 reasons: They do not zip smoothly, the polyurethane coating wears out and it is expensive.
What material do you use?
At this moment, we are huge fans of X-PAC (VX-21).
We believe that X-PAC is the best fabric for your money and that is the reason why we always recommend that fabric.
For the walls of the framebag, we have a selection of Cordura Ripstop, X-PAC, Dyneema Reinforced and Full Dyneema.
For the belt, we use a much sturdier fabric ‘Cordura 1000(den)’.
For the laces, we use elastic Shockcord (4mm).
How did you learn to produce framebags?
I, Mickey, the producer of all the framebags, love to work with my hands. One of the reasons why I started to become a student in Industrial Engineering is that I want to design, develop and produce my own creations. The reason why we started CMG is that we were not satisfied about the price and quality of the framebags on the current market. I believed that I can do better. So I decided to watch a lot of Youtube tutorials and I looked into different products from various industries to get some inspiration. And 6 months later, CMG was born.
