    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.
    have:ea50 flats, black, light, stiff.
    144 bcd 3/32" 49t sugino track chainring, possibly 75.

    want: risers, light, stiff, 1", black if that can be
    144 bcd 46t or 47t chainring any kind or width

    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.

    ". . .a striped jersey under his jacket; bared calves (outside the bicycle track); cap pushed back; feet in a false position on the pedals; a barking horn, a disorderly appearance, an always-dry tongue, and a definite fondness for wine merchants. . ."
