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)

CHROME bag question ~ Do They Make the Kremlin in ALL WHITE?

I saw someone with an all white Chrome bag the other day and realized I must have one!

But the site only list a Metropolis in all white but NO Kremlin!

Do they or have they ever made a Kremlin in all white?

You know, I've never had one. I think I need a bowler hat & a monacle to enjoy one.

the real question is: how are you going to keep it all white?

The blood of the innocent, easy.



I mean, at least that's how I clean mine. YMMV.

i called timbuk2 about doing this once. i mean, ALL WHITE. not just white panneling.. they don't have the parts. most of their stock trimming, straps, and plastic pieces are only in black.

if chrome can pull it off, better scotch guard that bling ish. get the logo redone in swarvoski crystals

i emailed them a few months ago to ask about an all white bag, actually.

they said they couldn't/wouldn't make a bag in this color now, but it's a color they're considering offering in the not-too-distant future.

I can't imagine how nasty that's going to look in a few months. My bag is starting to look dirty and it's dark green....

Box Dog Bikes on 14th around valencia in SF that has a few custom-looking bags for sale. There weren't any patches or logos on the bags that I could see, but I think the price tag might've said "top bag" or something like that? Not sure... anyway, there's one in the window and it is all white. White cordura, white vinyl, white trim, white fasteners, white strapping. It looked pretty friggin' cool. They a had a few other colours as well, but the all-white one was the stand-out. $100, looked pretty well-made.

You could call them at 415-431-9627 and see if they'd ship it. Or at least find out who made it and see if you could get a similar one made for you.
