    that looks to me like a typical single-strap faux-messenger bag. it's also canvas, not cordura, which means it's not really waterproof. this bag isn't really intended for riding.

    $57.77 isn't that great of a deal. you can get a real timbuk2 in large for $50-60 lots of places online, and probably a whole lot less on eBay.

    The bag you love—now in soft cotton canvas—hauls your gear, rain or shine.

    * Bag is made of prewashed cotton canvas and features dual leather strap closures on front flap and an adjustable shoulder strap
    * Waterproof barrier liner helps keep contents dry
    * Features a large main compartment, zippered pocket with separate organizer pockets for small items and a cell phone pocket
    * Two external pockets under flap, one with a zippered closure, secure small items
    * Leather strap for attaching an LED light (sold separately)
    * Closeout

    Yeah, I'd think this would be a bit of a dilemma for me since I'm in the market for a new bag, but I think I'm just gonna get a Seagull black bag in one of the new sizes they have for '08. Nothing like a quality bag handmade in the US of A.

    why would timbuk2 market the bag with singlespeed in the title if it wasnt intended for riding?

    I live in socal and get rained on very little. regardless im sure alot of people spend more time riding in dry weather each year than wet so its a trade off. If you have the bag delivered to a REI store it cost 51.77 , if you find it cheaper anywhere else its more than likely gonna be used. i think you and your negativity need to think twice before posting.

    I don't know what these guys are talking about, that sounds like a pretty good deal to me. According to the first responder, you could have paid as much as $7.77 less (or 1.32 more, before shipping I assume)...so, big deal, who cares. My timbuk2 has lasted me for 6+ years of daily use. And as for it being faux-messenger...timbuk2 is was one of the first companies to produce messenger bags. Not sure how that makes them faux.

    REI lost my business in the last two years (and i was a member since 1979) with its whacked pricing and member 'discounts' ...

    my bike-related dollars go to small businesses with honest policies, not an overgrown, bloated corporation that has lost sight of its original mission and that is no longer a 'co-op'

    My friend has a Large Timbuk2. They seem fine for walking but their design is really outdated for cycling.
