    my chrome bags are in the mail!

    well tonight I took the plunge, after about a month of debating wether or not to get a chrome bag and what size to get I splurged. I just bought 2 brand new chrome bags: one in their Metropolis size, and one in their Citizen size (aswell as a cell phone holster).

    I just couldnt decide which size was best for me so I ordered both to see how they fit, I'm soo excited though

    Ill post my thoughs (and pics) about both the bags when I get them.

    so if anyone was considering one of these bags but couldnt decide which would work best, just reply to the thread with what your going to put in it and I'll try my best to get a picture with those items in both bags.

    I really hope this helps some one

    Congratulations! I know how you feel as I just ordered a Brooks saddle, with a similar debating period. I hope the bags are exactly what you wanted!

    (And yes, you did help others. I know I read and re-read every Brooks thread I could find to help me decide so your threads have helped and will continue to help others in the future.)

    Sorry, but Reloads are better - for me and our economy.

    I'm going to the Chrome store in SF tomorrow to pick up a Citizen bag myself.

    Take a look at Ortlieb. They're looked upon as the Mercedes of bags over here.
    Donít know what they're like over there (pricing), but they sure work great with their one hand mounting dismounting system.
