    Chrome bag crisis

    I've been using my mini-metro for about a year and for the most part, I like it.
    However, it sucks at times when I need to haul a lot of stuff and can't really do it.

    I traded my friend my mini metro for his citizen but it appears the support strap next to the buckle is missing.

    I am a small dude, 5'8" and probably 130 pounds or so. So, unless the bag is fully loaded up with stuff, the bag slips off my shoulder.

    Anyone know how I can replace the strap?

    Thanks

    did you try contacting chrome? i'm sure they'd fix it for you. if you're looking to get it fixed right away (ie: don't want to wait), see if you can find a store that repairs backpacking equipment.

    I bet they would fix it for you.

    But wait, I thought Chrome bags had a lifetime warranty?

    shouldn't this be in the commuting forum as hipster purses are not an issue with a bicycle?

    I don't think you know what that means.

    Oh please don't pretend you haven't noticed the link between the fixie thing an the messenger bag thing...
    It should be in this SSFG simply because more people here are likely to give him a useful answer. I'm sure plenty people would answer in the commuter forum but I'm sure more people here have chrome bags.

    It's none of my business what other people think of me.

    I would actually like to see the answers a thread titled "Chrome bag crisis" would get in the Commuter forum. Might make for a fun reading.

    Have you tried just pulling the seat belt strap tighter? I've never really used/needed that support strap even with big loads since that does the trick for me and because I always keep it in that little velcro strap on top of the pad as pictured on their site....

    Hey skeletor, go cry about it in the clydes forum. Or better yet just take it to a sew shop and get a new clip kit, probably available at a craft store or something.
