    Yeah, I said I was 5'7". I don't have visibility issues. I thought I would, but... Then again, I don't care if I have to turn around to see. I have done that riding at 25+ mph, but that was in a lot...

    It does take some time to get the Miche to tighten properly, but then again I have a much better chainline than I had with sugino 65.
  5. Now, if I could just get my wife to stop driving....

    Now, if I could just get my wife to stop driving. The bag is worth it, and I don't regret the money I spent.

    And to be fair, the $300 was for the bag, hip belt, and the chrome accessory pouch.

    I am 5'7" and the length of the bag is a bit too long. It bothered me before I road, but while riding it doesn't bother me at all. The Rambler didn't seem any shorter. Eventually, I got use to the...

    And how would that help me with the task at hand? My wife needs a car seat and a stroller not a bike trailer. I had to get said stroller and car seat home. I hate cars, therefore Mission Workshop bag...

    I had a week of laundry for my wife and myself once. I was riding up this hill and passed a guy in full kit. He said to me, "are you really going to pass me with all that on your back?" I said to...

    Lifting my leg to get on the bike almost made me fall over.

    I had to ride up a 7% grade, that almost killed me. I was worried that I might not be able to peddle anymore. It was only 1/4 a mile though. With this load you can't just speed up before a hill,...
  16. Putting the Mission Workshop Vandal to the Test

    I have had my MW Vandal for about 6 months now, and really I can't think of any other backpack I would rather have. I figured I would give an example of the type of load I have carried with it. ...
