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)

Cleaning a Messenger Bag

Ok, first of all, I searched the threads under "cleaning cordura" and nothing came up. So Im asking it now...

How and what do you clean your bags with. Mine looks like its been sitting in poo for awhile. Any tips/advice/methods?

Mine can definitly use a good clean.

Thanks

I just throw it in the washer, wrap the buckle in a sock to keep the noise down

Bad karma to wash your bag.

Just let the rain clean it off.

that's my method...when it's really bad (grease stains) I use some soiLove and an old toothbrush beforehand.
