    Try going to your local bike shop. If they don't have them in stock they should be able to order them and have them in a few days.

    He's right it's made by Salsa, which is a QBP brand so most any bike shop should be able to order it.
    I just got one for my Trucker and I really like it. Keeps the bags low and is very lightweight.
