I liked the frame bag from the link. I am thinking about commuting. I take two laptops to work. I have a backpack, but the frame bag would be more comfortable.

I downloaded the catalog. Love the single/duo and also the 14 speed hub. Maybe I should get fenders for my hybrid rather than buying one of these for commuting.

I didn't see prices in the catalog but believe they will be ultra expensive giving me reason to stick with my hybrid for commuting.

If you have to ask............................

Fenders for current bike would be more cost-effective.

Yeah, it's the copper frame.

Some guys buy a Harley or rv when they retire, I got that.

I'll be home in a couple days and see if it has arrived.

Yup, but that's not the frame he's getting. He's getting the copper colored TerraFerma one shown in post 6

It's a 650b randonneur frame, but since I don't use bar bags or front racks, the front wheel isn't kicked out as
far. Tires are Grand Bois 40c, my wife already has a 650b with grand Bois tires. Smooth.

Ultegra 9 brifters, XT rear der, rando handlebars. Just a nice bike for long rides.

I dropped it off at the bike shop today.

The frame was roughly $2500, I try to avoid thinking about how much this costs.
