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 have the Barney Rustle Blanket bag from Crumpler and it's pretty decent. It's big enough to hold the stuff I bring to work (a hoodie, lunch, DS, U-lock, etc.) without being overbearingly big and silly looking when it's empty. I like the reflective stripe on the bottom. It feels like a sturdy bag, so I'm hoping it lasts for years.

The only complaint I have about it is that there's no external U-lock pocket, but that's pretty minor.

thats a cool idea, but how do they make money or does the beer go to charity?

my dorm had a box for canned goods to go in, thing you wouldnt need any more because we are all going home for the summer. So of course it had things like corn, soups, and easy mac. but kids also put the few cans of beer they had left over and didnt want mom and dad find on the ride back home. lol

Why do you need to make money when your money goes towards beer anyways? Just cut out the middle step and liquidate some old inventory while you're at it. Brilliant.

So i did this one saturday. Picked up a complete seed and a barney rustle. I don't know that i'd pay retail for the bags, but at the cost of the beers, I'm quite happy. They dont appear to be as sturdy as my reload deluxe but for carting my necessities to work or having a smaller bag for longer rides, they'll be great.

Also there was an article about it in the nytimes
It says that they donate a number of the cases to local art house openings and what not. So yeah i think that's a pretty good benefit to the community so i'm happy.
