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)

Why to not let someone pack your Messenger Bag

I was hanging out at a friends house and one thing leads to another and we decided to smoke a little. I tell him to grab some from my bag, he does, gets what he needs and puts it back in my bag.

On the way home I stop by the grocery store to grab some hummus and bread. I go to lock up my bike, swinging my baileyworks superpro to my side, I grab my U-lock out of the front billow pocket where I keep it. Well apparently that is where my friend decided to put back my stuff. The action of pulling the lock out sends my stuff flying through the air in slow-mo like it was a friggin movie. My bowl shattered right at the entrance of the grocery store will all the people around...I left pretty quick.

Don't let your friends pack your bag, or don't smoke. The latter is probably the better advice.

who the hell rides with a glass pipe?

I can't even keep them around the house without breaking them, let alone travel with them.

Why I always just rolled joints, back in the day. Or rolled the tobacco out of a cigarette, filled the resulting tube with shake, and packed in a centimeter or so of the tobacco at the end with a pencil eraser. Suitable for travel, and all you have to do is rip off the filter...insta-bone!

But pot is for sucks.

I'm glad you both made this thread and name-dropped the type of bag you use.

I'm glad too. I really only mentioned the type of bag because not all bags have the same types of pockets.

This is one of the many reasons you should never go outside when you're stoned.

Bikes are bad, m'kay?

[EDIT] Unless you're at Glastonbury, or some inferior other festival. Roll on summer
