    messenger bag mojo

    i had some errands to run this afternoon (post office, groceries), so i wore my messenger bag when i went out riding. it's weird, but for some reason everything seemed to click: i was moving faster, the gear felt a lot easier (due to equipment probs, i've been running 46/13 for about 3 weeks now), i could skid more consistently. maybe the bag's got some mojo attached to it. i guess i'll wear it out all the time and see what happens. pass the koolaid and get me a "posenger" t-shirt, i'm finally here.

    actually strangely enough here on base we all march to class together and they sell these snazzy black messenger bags at the BX.....and everyone almost has them to carry their books in

    furthermore I really doubt most of them realize they are carrying messenger bags

    I don't have a messenger bag. I use a backpack with cool reflectors on it. I guess I can't be a posenger. I will be...someday.

    the bag is a custom made gogofaster. i don't think he makes any more. and i can't afford an ipod, 'cos i'm just a simple galley slave. it does have a stash pocket, tho.

    (edit: yeah, he's still making bags: gogofaster.com)

    You know, usually when I have a super killer day, I assume I must have eaten correctly the day before or something like that. Then I check the wind, 90% of the time I am getting pushed in the direction of my destination... Which means, yeah I suck...

    I was actually making a plea for a free bag. With a stash pocket. I need a place to stash stuff so I don't end up on Cops when they start filming here.

    Does a messenger solve the "back sweat" problem? I seriously think I'm getting too hot because with the backpack covering my back I'm losing a large space from which heat would normally radiate.

    It seems to help...of course, you've got the strap crossing your chest, too, so maybe it just relocates the sweat.

    I feel a lot more balanced with a messenger bag than a backpack; I think because I'm better able to adjust where the weight is sitting. My back and shoulders don't get as sore, either.

    What do you need to hide? I'm thinking of putting a couple really strong little magnets on the underside of my saddle to stash my fistload out of view...

    Well, nothing really. I like the security gained in just having a stash pocket available. Just in case I ever need to stash something. I think it might be fun to stash stuff like my key to my lock or a twinkie or something. Then you'll see me on "Cops" saying. "Dude, I don't know nothing about that Twinkie. I've never seen that Twinkie before in my life! Man, I'm just borrowing this bag I don't know nothing 'bout no damn Twinkies!" and then I'll try to run only to be nabbed by a donut eating cop because I can't run in spd's.

    I hear that Chrome bags have stash pockets. You should get one of those.
