Thank you, I bought a tall rando bag.

I’ve been watching these restock threads for at least a year and they’ve mostly been black until today.

A year or so ago I tried for a tall rando, but by the time I entered my cc info they'd sold out. I ended up with a medium- which has been great, though a tall would fit better (and give me a little more room). Missed out on the grey/blue ones a couple months ago, but finally nabbed one this time around. They're really nicely made, and good looking bags.

I've got a medium saddle bag I've only used a few times if anybody is interested! It's very nice, I just like handlebar bags better.

I've just transplanted two self-starter oaks to where I hope they'll thrive but I won't need a bag for their acorns for a few years.

I bought one of the brown saddlebags from their last brown batch. They're nice bags and look good on these old bikes. I was pondering a large handlebar bag over the weekend, but they were gone when I checked.

Maybe not as nice as Acorn, but Spa Cycles has Carradice bags super cheap. The Zipped Roll is just $50 plus shipping.
