    I can't find MikeC's pics of the various motech tankbags. Can anyone who has one that isn't the Daypak II give me an idea of the internal dimensions?

    I am looking for one that wil take my netboock 30cm x 20cm (12" x 8")

    You might try looking here for the dimensions.

    Too wide a bag will interfere with your handlebars. A smaller top box may be a better solution. It will handle a medium pizza or a lovely apple tart as well.

    Happy hunting.

    I know from my daypack that the dimensions given can be a bit tricky, especially for those with side packs and things, plus the tank shape ones are even harder to work out, so if anyone has say an Engage or a City or Trial, then actual internal measurements would be really useful.

    I already have a topbox, I just like the convenience of the tankbag.

    I have a spare motech base, I might convert an old tankbag I have lying about to use it, but it's larger than I really want, so finding if motech have a small one that's still big enough would be great.

    Ask and you shall receive. :woohoo:

    The larger one is (I think) a "city" bag and I have just shoved my MacBook air 11" in it which is 30cm x 19cm x zilch. It just fits, but only just. It's a tight fit, one end goes down into the lower end nearest the seat and the other end is just under the lid at the front. You wouldn't be able to get much else in there with it shoved in like that, but it does fit in.

    Thanks!

    Looks like the City will be too small. Bummer. I suspect the Engage is about the same size as my old tankbag that I could convert.

    Time to get out the measuring sticks...
