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?

Bags, packs, things that hold things.... let's get a superlist going.

Let's get an exhaustive list going of the companies/people who make bags. I'm obsessed with them and the sub-culture seems to fit this forum well.

Here is an awesome custom bag made by another forum member. It's for sale, and if you like Mission Workshop bags I think you'll like the look of this one. Someone buy this bag! (Edit: bag has been sold, but he's working on more/different bags)

My new favorite little bag! Perfect for afternoon trips around town.

Weird are you from Portland? My friends have a bike company; they repair carbon fiber frames and the Blaq people work in the same building.

Oh. Well, to stay on topic, I have two of these things (a baby one and a big one): http://www.manhattanportage.com

Why are you obsessed with people/companies who make bags?

Don't know. Some guys dig shoes, or belts, or watches... I dig bags.

I almost bought that last week in black but then decided $40 is too much to spend on a fanny pack.

haha i got one at some random store in san francisco a while back for ten bucks. Hasn't steered me wrong and have been wearing it almost every day. SO damn useful, so much mobility without having to carry **** in my pockets.

I've also been looking at the Timbuk2 hemlock backpack. dont know whether or not to pick up the small or medium size.

I'm sure that a waistpack in San Francisco is much more "acceptable" than in Louisville KY. :/

I went with a small and it holds all of my **** just fine. Just look at some videos online to get a good idea of how big they are.

I have two bags from courierware; deluxe and super deluxe courier bag. I would highly recommend them to anyone. This is a great company. Check out their website: http://www.courierwareusa.com/.

I have had my deluxe for over eleven years. It was purchased when they still had a brick and mortar in Cambridge, MA. My super deluxe is about eight years old. Both bags look as if they were just purchased. These bags are function and form wrapped into one. They have been commuted with and used in a variety of ways; best airplane carry-on one can find, excellent diaper bag, good for the beach.

Contents have only gotten slightly damp once. This was during a torrential downpour in Pittsburgh, PA during a seven mile commute.

Since these qualify as 'things that hold things' and puts the beat down on any mess bag or backpack here you go.

I see what your concerned about now. Well, I live in san diego so I got some funny looks and comments with giggles attached when I first took it back here. Got used to being "that guy" though. Feels good to bust out some random object someone needs that I've got in the bag. The absolute best part is that there is NO **** IN MY POCKETS YEAHHHH

Cool, good lookin'. It was the most reasonably priced one out there but I'm a bit concerned since I read somewhere that it's not waterproof. Had me considering getting something by Chrome.

Just converted an old Army surplus gas mask bag to a rear bag on my beater. No pics yet, I will see what I can do.

Here is the bag:
