One hell of a man-satchel

This one’s for Big Jim at Fit Recovery, check out the size of this saddlebag! Do you think it ruins the lines of my sexy new bike? Haha!

Don’t worry, it’s not a permanent fixture. I’m going to start cycle commuting on a regular basis soon so I was in need of a sizable bag to transport my important stuff in (read: my lunch). Neither of my road bikes have any rack mounting points so I went for an Ortlieb saddle bag, in size large! It’ll take my food, spares and everything else I may need with room to spare.

To be totally honest I probably wont use this bike for commuting anyway. That duty will fall to my dependable workhorse Ribble 7046 road bike.

  2. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!|

  3. In Firefox I normally use right-click > “Open in new tab” when browsing web pages. This can also be done when clicking on a bookmark. . . Is there any way to get Firefox to do this automatically (by default) when left-clicking a bookmark instead of having to do the right click?.
