    I cannot believe you're even asking. Obviously RafxEastpak.


    Also, the Timbuk2 messenger bag I have in medium holds a lot of stuff, and they have larger sizes.


    Messenger bags are so ghey.

    I must agree with Fran here.

    Ortlieb. Worked perfectly for me for two bike-messengering years. Machine washable. [​IMG]

    am I the only one who thinks those roll top things look hideous?

    I can't do messenger bags, they are rather gay.

    Ideally I'd drag a few Goyard steamer trunks behind me but that's slightly impractical.


    You're a dumbass. I have a Chrome bag and I think it is awesome. I've always had good luck with your standard fair from some place like REI or something. Get yourself a large internal frame or daypack-- whatever is the best price.

    Yes, but so are most other backpacks.

    Well, I guess it's either a backpack or a new LCD monitor. I'll probably go with the latter and use a shitty Jansport or something.

    I see you more with a LeSportsac. It would be oh-so-darling.

    Timbuk2 Lex Large or X Large. Both of them have serious hauling portage and are are built tough. I have the large Lex backpack. Good for an urban environment where a mountain pack is impractical or just too big.

    I mean really! Can't people just like, ugh, not need to carry so much stuff! [​IMG] dl


    If you have a week's worth of groceries and you're more a mile's walk from the store. Carrying home the stuff in both of your hands isn't really an appealing proposition. You may need to ferry more stuff than you think and extra cubic space always helps!

    Why? Not every one has access to a car or public transportation.

    I used to think having a manbag reflected on my sexuality. But with so much stuff nowadays, let's face it, us guys have more to carry than our fathers and grandfathers did.

    Like that one... you could carry everything but the kitchen sink! The question being, would you want to?

    Do you already have the bike picked out? IMHO, if you're going to be carrying grocery-sized loads, you might want to find a bike that can handle a basket or panniers, like some others have suggested. Riding a bike with anything more than a light load on your back sort of sucks.
