    http://www.w-base.com/onlinestore/ has Resistant bags, although I have no idea if they'll ship internationally. And you might be screwed if you can't read Japanese

    Or, there's only one of mine in the Seattle area

    Why would this be a joke. I want to get something a little more rare than what is all over the streets of Seattle.

    Sorry, but R.E.Load makes a mighty fine bag. So, if you're looking for something fresh, go custom. Or at least don't downgrade from R.E.Load.

    ^NICE go steal his plates and then you will have some street cred

    EDIT: I was thinking about it and it might be tough to find some NjS mounting hardware for that plate you are best going with 5 kashimax tt protectors

    The Kashimax TT protector isn't NJS stamped.

    I hear Japanese bags match your shoes better. I can't wait to get my $450 Japanese bag!! It's going to match my never worn Dunks perfectly. SICK!

    I like my Reload. It is custom. But my roommate wants to buy it from me, as he needs a bag. So i figured I'd try to get something Japanes cuz i like the design of those bags which I've seen coming out of Japan. Can anyone give info on the SAG bags?

    I like Bagaboo. Not Japanese but you can get a completely custom bag; send in your own design and they'll print it or pick from a few they have or pay to have one of their artists do up a nice design for ya.

    The guys over at fixedgeargallery did a review of a few bags and Bagaboo got high remarks.

    For the ultimate in custom, and you can guarantee that no one else will have one exactly like it, make your own.

    in seattle, even riding a fixed gear is rare. all the college kids see things on craigslist such as... *10 SPEED FOR SALE 20$ MAKES GREAT FIXIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
    and then they either ride them as the same bike or take the derailleurs off to make a half-a$$ singlespeed.
    anyway, dont worry about what bag you get so much, as long as its not a timbuk2. EVERYONE has those. even if they dont ride a bike.
