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)

bigger bag. xl baileyworks here, using the straps to hold two vertically stacked 24-packs works great. part of me wonders if i could get a third with those compression straps....i've carried other **** with them.

now that i think of it, i've never tried three stacked upright in the bag, but i'm starting to think that if the compression straps worked, i could maybe get 4 in it. i should test these theories some weekend.

I'm so glad you've posted this because I was going to post the same question yesterday. I own no car and PA's beer laws are ridiculous. You can buy entire cases for twice the price of the same beer as a 6-pack here because of the stupid taxes and whatnot. But all the dispensaries in Philly are too far from my apartment to walk back and forth and I don't know how to work with that much liquid on my bike.

one of the projects i have been planning is to build a beercycle out of an old peugeot ue-8 i have laying around. Im going to use one of those flat rear mounted luggage/crate racks and fasten a large overhanging crate to it using plastic tie-wraps. bungee cords are to hold the beer in the crate, which is big enough to hold any case of beer.

I used to have no problem fitting two 6 packs of bottles in my simple jansport back pack, card board and everything. True, the zipper is tough to pull, but it all fits. I think I carried a loaf a bread in there once too.

If you're going for a case, simple answer is a rack. I dont' think I'd want a case of bottles or cans strapped to my back.

thats what im saying. i live in philly as well and while i can go out to numerus corner korean dellies and pay 30 bucks for 12 beers the 2 local despenseries seem just far enough walking with a case isnt easy.(unless i get myself an old lady shoping cart?).

the obvious answer is to stop drinking beer and just stick to liquer.

Alcohol gives people magical powers. It's true. It's in the Bible or something...
