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 can fit five and a half six packs, three cans of Sparks, two tallboys, a pen, two tire levers, a mini pump, a patchkit, and a circa 2002 digicam into a medium sized Timbuk2
I thought I was going to bust a tire riding back from the bodega.

That's a lot more comfortable with a Chrome Kremlin... Plus you can fit a full size bottle of whiskey...

Bag makers should standardize on the 6PC measurement instead of the more abstract CI.

I think we can all agree that it is easier to visualize the 6 Pack Capacity of a given bag instead of how many Cubic Inches it can hold.

i think that the bailey works site tells you the maximum beer capacity of any given bag...but i can't get the site to work for some reason...

The 6-pack representation never works for me because I don't know if regular, tall boy, or king cans are being used as the unit of measurement.

I'm going to spend some time and work this out. 6PC will be the standard some day, I know it

Take your bag CI measurement, or bag dimensions and find out how many six packs it holds.

Currently it calculates a six pack of cans, I will be upgrading the tool later to allow for cans / bottles. If someone can get me a height/width/depth measurement for a sixer of bottles that would be awesome.

Down with CI, up with 6PC!

I think you multiplied by 5, but if you're just allowing for one road soda, carry on.
