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)

hip pouches

Does anyone know where to get a decent one that isnt just a phanny pack? I saw one that consisted of a pocket for a wallet and a multi tool with a bit of room for maybe a phone, and even had a u-lock holster on the strap. Sometimes the good ole ortlieb just isnt full enough to warrant wear.

hip pouches are just fanny packs with a cool name

call it a fanny pack, cause it's so stylistic.

i love how no matter if it is a hip bag, or a messenger bag, size is always demonstrated in beers it can hold

F*** the u-lock holster. It's all about fashion over function.
