I had a little fridge in my shop and every shared a regular fridge where I put my groceries I got when I grabbed lunch. then I would have to empty my bag in it then fill it back up when I left. so when it died over the weekend it was tine for a bigger one in my shop. so no more taking stuff out of my bag.

I think they're saying they have their own fridge now and can put the whole pannier in there instead of unloading lunch items every day. Kind of funny to have cold accessories but whatever works! I'm tempted to start ordering grocery stuff online and having it delivered to my office so that I don't have to schlep so much back and forth.

right there isn nothing else in the bag but ya a cold bag is a bit funny. I shop several Tims a week so it is going to be nice.

Glad you have a fridge at work but not sure how this shows how serious you are as a bike commuter.

spending 330.00 so you have a fridge big enough for your bag that you have food in several times a day is not serious?

More or less did that the other day. We had a team potluck and I signed up to bring chicken and waffles, but kept procrastinating until I found myself at the office at 10am with the potluck at 11:30. Nowhere really rideable at that point. Dang, guess I'm going to be a no show, but wait. Uber Eats, baby! 3 orders from the a nearby breakfast place, delivered right on time.

Here's to living in the future, where planning isn't really a thing.

Fridge? I bought a condo.

With a garage to put my whole bike in. I also live in it, as does my wife. But primarily it was purchased in a location amenable to commuting to work, with storage and workspace for keeping my commuter and backup commuter and double backup commuter running.

Heck, I moved halfway across the continent just to live in a place where I'm not the only weirdo riding a bike to work. Lots of us here.
