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)

Yeah, my Banjo Brothers bag makes my back sweat quite a bit in the summatime.

But it's so easy to keep clean!

I think this spring I may buy a slightly smaller bag made of Cordura, though, just because I never use the full capacity of my Bros. bag when I'm not in school.

The bags look ok (a few places here carry them), but that website is horrible. If it's such a warm, fuzzy made-by-hand kind of product why is the site so pseudo-corporate and creepy?

the bags FEEL great, nice and soft, but are favored by the rich, privileged, sorority seattle girls from california, which makes me like them less, for some reason. but theyre so nice and soft. i was just petting him, george. tell me about the rabbits.

They give me a reason to save all of the mountain tubes I change at the shop, although some dummy threw out the most recent collection box.

Because that's typically the market for all these recycled accessory products.

BTW, I have to wonder about the idea of a 100% waterproof bag made from recycled innertubes. So the tubes don't have any holes in them? If not, then why were they recycled?
