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)

Choose me a bag!

I'm looking into getting a messenger bag. I'm not a messenger, and am going to be needing to carry textbooks and perhaps one day a laptop. I have no idea where to start looking, so i thought i'd look here.
any ideas?

if you are looking for a bag with the ability to stand up to the elements and a lot of beating, and really want to shell out $150 dollars for one, then you've got a lot of options, and this thread has been done a hundred times before. i got a baileyworks superpro L back in december and have been singing their praises ever since. now i'm actually doing messenger work and i'm so glad to have it on my back. so that's my two cents. someone else will tell you chrome is better, someone will bring up reload and under the weather... what it comes down to for me is functionality, and of course, i have to rep the east coast. baileyworks is located in portsmouth, nh, so they get my vote forever.
