    Out of the loop

    Its been a while since I posted on here. In between moving from Hawaii to the Bay and working to much and riding motorcycles and skateboarding, I haven't rode a bicycle in a little while. But now I've moved to Atlanta and there is a velodrome only a few miles away.

    So besides getting a new bike,




    What messenger bag should i get?
    Im Here.

    Forget the bag. You should be asking what tires you need to replace the ones that are dry rotted.

    No, the messenger bag definitely comes first.

    I'd get a Timbuk2 if I were you. They're kind of hard to find though.

    i have a timbuk2 and a chrome. i like the chrome a lot better - hugs your body better and the fact that the chrome is mossy oak let me exercise the inner redneck in me.

    Don't bother with a Timbuk. The ones from the Gap are much better.

    Also, what is the "black bag" or whatever mentioned in your post and on the site? I didn't see any information about it.
