    I just saw an Icon in person, and there definitely isn't room for the flat down under bag (nor the type I have, which is same company but not flat).

    I think that you might be able to mount something like this tight up against the seat pan, there are some pre-drilled holes so you can attach it (maybe zip ties?)

    (this is just a quick example of a small bike bag that probably wouldn't swing around).

    When I carry stuff on my lap I try to put it between my legs. Helps stabilize my legs, and makes people less likely to grab (or even notice that something is there).

I put my catheters and phone in the larger pocket and keep my wallet and keys in the smaller pockets. If you ever get down to SJ/Gilroy, you can check mine out to see if you like it.
    Thanks for the feedback. I do think the bag would be great but I need to get my Icon and look around under the seatpan and see the frame, try to figure if I could use the flat pac WH180. I am so sick of my swinging under seat pouch. I can't find anything in it anyway. I want to make the chair sleeker than I've got my Tilite TR set up. Should have the new chair some time next week. Thanks for the help :-)

    Jgrant, not sure about getting into that bag but it's an idea, thanks. I also found this http://www.biketiresdirect.com/produ...dd-tire-bag-ii bag from the same company. I'll know better when I have the chair at my place. Who knows what my final solution will be :-) In the end, maybe I will need to go with what Jeff has. I definitely want to solve the problem of having to bend down to get things. That's been sucking for years. I want to mount something right under the seatpan if I can.

    GJ, thanks for the tip on the thread. I looked through it and didn't find a solution for me. I've been using an underseat pouch for 17 years and they've never really worked for me. I'm just now doing something about it. Getting a new chair I think is going to better and I want to make everything else I use with the chair better too. So sick of bending. So tired of digging in the dark with my fingers trying to find something. I'll figure something out I hope. I am so old I have decided everything just needs to be easier. Rough and tumble is a young man's game. I'm ready for my leisure suit .. well not quite ;-)
