Request for under seat/wedge bag suggestions/tips/warnings
I'm thinking of adding an under seat storage solution to my swift.
I'm thinking through the pluses and minuses. of using backpacks, fannypacks with and without drink holders & under seat packs (wedge packs?)
I'm currently leaning towards an under seat storage solution.
Anybody have any tips, product recommendations (or product warnings), etc.
What's your favorite under seat solution (that doesn't need a tool to remove and doesn't mess with folding too much)
I currently don't have a bottle cage, so bags with a bottle holding solution migh be interesting.
Okay, let the tips and suggestions flow.
Resale price of custom Swift?
I'm considering selling my Swift, but am not sure what a fair price would be. My bike's a year old, and I got an offer for 50% of the new value - seems a little low to me. Given that it's custom, and happens to be exactly what the buyer wants (drop bars, hub gears) and which also happens not to be available off the shelf I'd say it's worth more. Ideas?
I'd have to say, I'm not selling because I'm disappointed with the Swift as such. I just hardly ride it anymore, it's so uncomfortable on the ****ty roads in San Francisco and I no longer need a folder on my commute. I almost always ride my 40 year old Raleigh town bike, it's so comfortable and low stress.
I guess the thing I like least about the Swift is it's poor fold. It's still huge when folded, and comes apart into an untidy bundle that can't stand on its own. If I were to buy another folder, it would probably be a Merc or Brompton.
