    Changed bags...

    I removed my old Trek bag from the Roubaix, similar to this:



    and replaced it with this:



    Not only does it look far better on the Roubaix, but I expect at least a 1 mph speed increase too, given less drag.

    The older bag fits nicely on the Cypress, and looks like it belongs there as well.

    Thought about making a similar reference, but thought someone would smack me upside the head. So, I went with an oblique reference to that great art film, Napolean Dynomite.

    Without the visual aids provided, we would have been left to ponder whether you meant...
    Golf...bags
    Sleeping...bags
    Grocery...bags
    Saddle...bags

    Well, you get the idea. Nice looking "bag", Gee! Personally, I prefer this one:

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!"

    I like this one, but white bikes are not worthy of such a fine bag.

    I've got the Velo Orange version of that bag. Also the VO front bag. Of course...I don't have any white bikes.

    A black bag on a white bike. Shouldn't you change your user name to "Fred"?

    Great looking bag. Far smarter than my specialised "Mini Wedge" that I got for the Boreas- and about twice the size. Only thing is- Knowing your Mechanicing skills- What are you going to put in it?
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Nah, the black bag nicely frames the white frame, so to speak. Hanging under a black saddle it looks perfect.

    Is that the Aero Survival Wedge that comes with a took kit? It's on sale at Performance for $24.99. According the their specs, it is 8 1/2 inches long and I'm wondering if it would look too big compared with the seat size.

    Nope, it is a stand alone bag. I paid about $18 for it. It's almost but not quite as wide as my seat.

    Digital Gee,
    I have a similar ToPeak Aerowedge on my Mountain Bike. Great bag.

    How do you like the stock seat on your Roubaix? I bought my Rx... for long distances but find the seat a limitation as a ride approaches the 100 mile mark. I have a Brooks B17 on the touring bike and it is great. I just ordered a Brooks Pro...Hope it is as good on the Rx as the B17 is on the Surly LHT.

    That is one seriously nose down saddle. Congratulations on the huge junk it must take to need to set it up like that.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    I love my stock saddle on the Roubaix. I have the same one on my other bike. So that's about 3,000 miles on the avatar.

    There are such a variety of wedge's about- but it should be just about large enough for what you need to carry. That Speciallised Mini I have will not hold a great deal- but thats why I have a Cycling jersey with pockets- for the extra. The trek one I bought is a bit larger- but has to be stuffed out with a chain cloth- which is never used as I don't have a white bike.
