Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

you are not going to get a straight answer. try searching for more info. people like different things... if you don't know the big names, use the search. then look at their sites. if you still have questions, come back here.

You turd, get a Bailey Works. Reload is for hipsters.

I like my sack, but I find it can only take 3-4 beers before it needs emptying.

that being said, I have a chrome backpack that I'm really not happy with. Wearing it for commuting really sucks as I didn't get the big enough one so even a pair of shoes makes it feel like its digging into my spine, not too mention trying to pick up beer with it on the way home.

MLProject - ask to have the "new" style strap pad accomodations made on your RELoad. Much nicer than that old strap pad. I hauled an old reload around for 4 years using the old strap pad. The new one is really kind on the shoulder:
http://reloadbags.com/bags/list.php?t=custom_stock&m=2
check out "Woven Civilian" and "Royal Deluxe"
I almost changed to a different bag for good...but then they caem out with this. Still love the RELoad...best there is.

pk - based on your avatar, I recommend a COKEBAG

i would probably go with the deluxe via shant's monstrosity that can hold enough beer to get you wasted for a week.

kyle.. i'd have to see a baileyworks in person to see if i like it.. .i think bikesmiths has them though so i can peep them there... they're way more coin though and i still need to buy your wheels

and for hipster points, that woven reload would go great with some nike woven HTMs...

If it's not Zo, it's faux.





..now that that's out of the way, my Reload feels pretty nice, too. I didn't like the way the chrome felt or the way it's shaped, though.

I dont think they are more than a Reload the size you would need.

Ten extra hip points if you accomplish this task before midnight!

4. teabag

The act squatting over an suspecting victim and placing one's scrotum in their oral orifice. The teabagged victim then awakens with a mouth full of pubic hair, not to mention two fatty nuts!

"HAHAHAHA Andy just got teabagged hardcore!"
"No way man!"
"Look, you can still see the pubes in his mouth!!"
Mmm ... pubes. What?
