Incorrect. I mean, you can add 'designer' if you'd like, but 'drawstring' (pocketability) is more important.

Yeah, that would be very useful.

I do, but that's way more substantial than what I'm looking for. I want something light that I can fold in half, shove in a jersey pocket and not know it's there (until I need it). I really don't anticipate carrying more than a pound or so. Mostly, I haven't been driving as much lately, and I hate the idea of driving 15-20 miles round-trip just for some coffee beans, but I love the idea of swinging by the roaster on the tail end of a ride - fitting a 16oz bag of beans in a jersey pocket isn't easy.



I checked the shipping option - it's more than the cost of the bag. :lol:

I'll probably just tack on the least offensive option available the next time I place an order online. Maybe it'll even get me over the free shipping price hump. :o


I meant do the in store pickup, and select Williamsburg, Iíll grab it for ya and mail it to ya or hold it what ever you want. The in store shipping between stores should be free. Just a thought.

Ah, yeah, but we all know that I'm way too impatient for that. :o

I think you should go with the stylish top tube bag. Itís like a bike fanny pack on the front side. Plus with 30 trek stores in every city, I am sure one of them will have one in stock.

You bag will fit about 20% of a pound o' beans. I need to fit 100% of a pound o' beans. I wouldn't want to be undercaffeinated.

And please don't tell me you'd put anything but a minimal, sub-saddle, cyclo-scrotum, on a road bike!

Me, personally? Nope. Gravel bike? Sure, but then I'll also have to grow a gnarly beard and finally invest in some plaid jerseys.

Sorry. Maybe I should have said something more like clean and check the frame regularly especially if you've ridden in gritty/wet conditions.

NTD
This morning I bought what could be the last pair of auto tires I ever buy. One of the ones that came off is original to the car, that we've owned since March of '18, and we bought last year's model. It has some good life left, but I took it off because it's six years old, and living in a hot climate year round. The other, mismatched one, has good life left in it too, but it's a mismatched size. 195 instead of 185. They will both languish in case of an emergency need for a temporary tire.

I can get a # of beans in my middle back jersey pocket. You need to try (stretch) harder. :D

It's only anecdotal, but we are hearing of a big surge in covid19 cases locally today. I think the back-to-school experience is spreading the germs around, coupled with waning immunity.

Phooey.

We're dodging a bullet with Hurricane Ian. They say it was that cold front in the southeast US that pulled it North. Our gain will be western Cuba's loss. It has to go somewhere. Merida suffered its last devastating hurricane 20 years ago this week.

I find those bags to be as repulsive in appearance as the trendy handlebar burrito bags.

So a bento box vs burrito bag = sushi vs tex-mex??

Trsnrtr 09-26-22 03:17 PM

I agree but I come from a racing culture background where bags are to be as small as possible or use a jersey pocket. In my case, I'm too forgetful to use a jersey pocket so I use a small seat bag about the size of my dainty fist on both of my uprights. If it's chilly, I often carry an empty wide mouth water bottle to cram tights, arm warmers or anything else I can force in there. Where I live, a single 550ml water bottle will carry you to the next water stop on almost any ride. Makes that second water bottle cage a handy storage location.

Tell me how you really feel.

I actually had a water bottle case, made by black burn, but I go through too much water, and I donít like stopping. Ended up leaving it at a 7/11 when I swapped it out for a propel.

I find cycling- scrotum bags on the backside repulsive.

I find them only slightly more tolerable than the previously mentioned bags. On the road bike, everything goes in my jersey pockets.

Mrs. rjones28 got it last week. Two months out from her last bout.

rjones28 09-26-22 03:38 PM

I feel fine.

I was doing that but honestly hate the way it feels. Maybe I was bringing too much with me, but I donít see how. Tube, pump, tire levers, multi tool.

Multi tool doubles as a wallet.
