    Is that an old Nashbar touring frame? Buddy of mine has one of those. His is nice, but a little odd.

    Thanks! I'm leaning toward that as well now.
    @RidingMatthew. He has an Arkel Trail Rider trunk bag. $114 online. It's a pretty cool bag. I'm considering getting one for my bike as well. I haven't decided yet though.

    thanks @Seano Hermano I got an email the same day from Adventure Cycling with that bag on there. Looks like very nice bag for the top of a rack.

    That's a really wide minimum rack width for the Arkel, 3.15"? My rack is only ~2.5" wide at the top where it'd mount, so I guess it wouldn't work for me.

    Sorry, those old (~1984) Nashbar touring frames are actually quite well made (rebadged Japanese make IIRC), but the geometry seems a little weird. (26" wheels, but the fork seems mismatched).

    Nice bike!

    Looks to me like the new iteration of the Nashbar Daytrekker (11L capacity). I used to commute with the previous version, which was even smaller at 7.9L. But perfect if all you have to carry is shirt, socks and underwear, and lunch, and you don't want to haul giant cross-country panniers around everywhere.

    Now though I have switched to a kittier, for waterproofness, decoratable surface area, and fredliness.

    Nashbar frame bag and Nashbar DayTrekker panniers. I wanted something smaller for the summer when I'm not carrying as much. I usually put my work clothes on one side and my lunch and maybe a jacket on the other side. This fall I'll switch back over to some larger panniers. This is my first time using a frame bag and I really like it. It's great for my phone, wallet, keys, and maybe a small snack.

    Here's one of my bikes I use for my 11 mile round trip to work. It's a Xootr Swift w/a set of custom built wheels rockin' WTB rims and a NuVinci hub. The tires are Schwalbe Big Apple 20X2.0's.

    Xootr Swift + NuVinci Hub.jpg

    And here's my Puma Nevis W/an Origin8 Classique CargoUnit Front Basket and a Nexus 8 speed hub. I swapped out the riser stem for a Truvativ Hussefelt Stem, so it's been updated since this last pic.

    Thanks buddy. The best part is when your coworkers suddenly notice it under the desk and are like "What the heck? How long has that been there?".

    Still a work in progress, by took my first little stroll with the new seat tonight, now I understand why they cost so much........ Just need to get the appropriate seat bag and matching handlebar bag, a front rack, and make the switch to metal fenders...........
