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?

I have the small one from Supergo. I got it on sale super cheap. It's not stylish, but it doesn't look bad.

I like the Timbuk2 ones I saw at my LBS. they are small, and come in purty colors for about 5 times what I spent for my black one with the reflective S

pedros... looks nice, and fits just enough without sticking out. I put a tube, crankbro pump and a topeak multitool plus extra tire irons... takes some doing but they sure fit in there.

In the past I have used an Army surplus ammo pouch. I attached it using an old innertube and some gaff tape. Just the right size and ******** indestructible.

Edit: Oh yeah, and it was about $2

If you need a good bit of room, I love the Jannd tubular tire bags. I think the TUFO bags are the same concept.

my gf gets grossed out riding behind people with under the seat bags dangling behind them... says they're vaguely testicular.

another +1 on the jandd. I've got 4 of their under seat bags ranging from the tiny toolkit bag to the Mountain Wedge 3 (the best way to do a tour w/o putting a rack on the bike.) Everything they make rocks.
