New wheeled carry bag

We have a new carry bag! The bags are of a heavy guage Oxford fabric and a bit of padding on the sides. They have two semi-recessed wheels and a rigid bottom so the bikes can be pulled behind you when not in use.

Please take a look at the attached photos and let me know what you think.

Seams sewn strong ? hot cut then double sewn with binding tape is a way to get it done.
hot cut won't fray , because the nylon melts together.

No, but it has two straps so it can be hung on the side of your rear rack.

I don't have a rear rack.

' think you should modify it, so it can be carried like a backpack.

There are no exposed edges to fray. They are all wrapped in trim or piping (inside and outside). It is beautifully made.

It will fit in a backpack, or you can use the shoulder strap to carry it.

It is 14" wide (but being flexible it can baloon out to about 18"), 27" high, and 34" long.
