Baggage thread.


Recommended Posts

I changed my mind. The bag is great for up to 20 lbs. The chest strap keeps it from wiggling and I have no problem taking turns to where I'm leaning completely off the bike so the pedals don't scrape. If you commute to school and have like five classes in one day and need to carry all your books at once, go with a backpack or a bus.

 

The timbuk2's only flaw as a cycling pack is there's no compartment for my U-lock, which i have to put in the main compartment as it jabs me in the back on rides. If you go with a timbuk2 messenger bag, it looks like the laptop bags have padding for your back, which may be good for bike locks. I end up locking it around the strap or through a pant belt loop where it's usually fine, but a place for it to be away from my back would be nice. I just realized too it's got a nice little spot for a taillight right above the logo on the bottom center, which is damn useful. You gotta get a shoulder strap pad too. That strap digs into you.

 

In all I'm actually happy with the bag.

it's expensive and dents easily?

@swif1they do look baller and if I had the bread I would cop. My main gripe is that they don’t expand.

I only use my backpack on rare occasions these days. I generally just use a green bag if im carrying paint and a bumbag to hold my mobile, coins etc. I tried using a messenger bag on a few occasions but it always seemed to uncomfortable for me.

For bombing I rock an olive green and black Jansport back from the middle school days. For loafing around campus I got a grey and red TransNine backpack from when I used to skateboard. I got some cheap messenger bag too but don't use it anymore. Also unless I'm carrying a lot of paint, I've just been using grocery bags lately.

Got the "build a bag" bag from timbuk2 today. I'm a little dissappointed. I dunno if it's because I tweaked my back at work today but messenger bags are the most improperly situated bags in the world for bicycle commuting. The fact you can roll it over and put stuff in it without taking the bag off your shoulder seems like a complete gimick in comparison to the ease and shoulder weight distribution of a normal backpack.

 

If you've got a messenger bag and love it for riding, please put your two-cents-worth in. Maybe i've got it cinched up wrong as well.

 

Chromebags are good messenger bags alot of $$ though.

So ive gone through a few bags since I started this thread

-timbuk 2. Light, entry level, and not the greatest quality in buckles and stitching.

-Chrome: good bag, seat belt buckle weirdness.

-Pac: $310 for the greatest most unbeatable lifetime bag ever. The bag itself is bomb proof and therefore heavy as fuck.

-Säg: only chance youll get one is if you go to Japan. Only bag ive ever tried that doesnt need the secondary strap because it just hugs your back without it. So dreamy.

-baily works: nice bag but limited colors and Ive never seen anyone use one while riding a bicycle.

-Zo: like em if you can find em.

You can get the Säg from a place in Maryland.
