On bike storage options with Creo SL

Just picked up a close out deal on a Turbo Creo SL comp and realizing that the storage methods I’m used to using on my other gravel bike won’t work… I typically use a small top tube bag that connects to the head tube and I can’t use that because the power controls would be covered. I also use a Keg storage unit in the under down tube bottle cage and the Creo doesn’t have cage bosses there, I assume because of the battery…

Any thoughts for other on bike storage options with these limitations?

Easiest is to buy a bum bag like the Osprey Savu 5 Lumbar Bike Hydration Pack. With most of these the hydration unit can be removed to provide more space for other items.

I use one of the Topeak saddle bags that mounts under the seat. I like that there is a quick release clamp so I can remove it in seconds from the bike. The medium size will hold a 700x30 tube, CO2 cartridge, and a multi-tool.

Handlebar mounted bags can greatly reduce stability when going down steep grades. I have experienced front wheel oscillation that was severe and put me at risk of a nasty spill. OK is you want to hold a small water bottle and a snack bar but still it would be my last choice.
