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)

SF - Freight Baggage/Travis Poh

He said that he was sponsoring a couple of races in the coming weeks (this was about 10 days ago or so) - and I've also heard that he has intermittent 'net access.

I'm getting all itchy to discuss bag options with him - should I call?

He's swamped, he's going to Japan, and he's always best reached by phone. Also, a very sweet guy.

Also, yeah, my sling is still for sale (to fund a freight backpack no less).

All -

Thanks for the replies. I haven't had a chance to make the call, but will tomorrow.

mcatano - I've actually checked out your For Sale Sling - however, due to a busted collar bone, I'm hunting for a backpack myself. 100% worth the wait, too, from the looks & comments others have made about his work.

I'm excited.

yep - your Flickr photo show was a big incentive. that, and reading jacobs comments on the bag. and a few other people who have posted teh infos here. and stuff.

if I could have one wish though, it'd be that there were a few more people using/posting some snapshots of his work.

Absntr - for picking colors, did you just refer to another website that displays the Codura choices?

I've seen enough of his bags to know what I wanted -- I ordered the bag shortly after I made a trip to SF and rode with and saw some friends out there. I also got to try the bag on so that helped a lot as well. I went with a simple colour choice though -- the black, the grey and the marigold, which is a richer yellow/gold than the yellow he has.

There's a PDF/image of his pseudo catalog which tells you stuff. It's sort of daunting since he doesn't have much stuff online -- fortunately, I know enough people with his stuff ans have seen enough of his bags to make a trusted call, so I understand your frustration.

You can also do a search on Flickr for freight baggage or travis poh and you should bring up some results.

You know, I promise that I've searched flickr at least 6.19 times for "freight baggage" "Freight Baggage" blah blah blah blah blah - and the only hits I was getting were from Absntr's photo collection, and now there they are.

I'll be d4/\/\n'd - so many nice looking bags.

Also - I've actually bookmarked that PDF image - its on page 3 of the Giant Bag thread here.
Pretty helpful stuff, although I think that his prices have change marginally since that was printed/published.

I've put a link to his gear on fyxomatosis.

Websites are so 90's. I suppose that makes them retro, no?

Go Travis, Go!
