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)

i'm in love with my r.e.load

i just put two 24-cases of bottled water in it and walked out of work.

heaviest load i think i've ever carried in my bag, but my deluxe swallowed up 48 bottles of water and could have held more if i could picked it up. crazy.

oh, and i'm still on a huge pumped up rush from the group buy that i bought today!

haha yeah, the beer test is tomorrrow night.
two cases of high life bottles... we need the caps for our coffee table.

i definitly could have fit a third in there and walked comfortably with it if i had been able to cinch it up tight... but i was taking it from work, two bottles would have been cool, two cases would have gotten me fired.

I've got a R.E.Load Courier (didn't wanna spring for the Deluxe) and love it the **** out of it. Enjoy the bag (saw it in the Custom Bag thread - nice!).

thank you, thank you. i love this bag so much. the one bad thing about it is that r.e.load forgot to sew in the pen slots, so i think i might take it by their shop sometime and see about getting them put in.

I heart my pen pockets. I think the one thing the bag needs is a second inside pocket.

pen slots are a lifesaver.

today I had a ton of fabric (8 66"x96" sheets folded),my sewing machine and extra thread and such in there and it could have closed without needing to use the buckles on the flap if I didn't toss in my hoodie.

I was given a reload deluxe in early 2001. It has been to four continents and abused on each, and the only wear is some fraying at the strap. Still waterproof.
