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)

What's in my bag?

The weather is getting warm in some places and some people are buying bags.
We keep getting post on how much can a bag hold.
Here is a group on flickr about "whats in my bag" people giving ideas about what different messenger bags can hold.

http://www.flickr.com/groups/19253565@N00/pool/

and also add the tag for a visual idea, I am sure you will find the bag you are looking for since there are more than 40k pictures.

http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=whats%20in%20my%20bag

typing "whats in my chrome bag" still leaves you more than 150 pics,

That's a month of groceries and supplies?! It looks more like a week.

I think I could have carried more, but Walgreen's had a limit to the number of cans you could buy during their BOGO sale.
