Mission Workshop has released a nice medium size cargo backpack called “THE RAMBLER” aka the bastard child of their "VANDAL BACKPACK".. These look great, plus MADE IN AMERICA!! I would really love to try one out ;)
The Rambler has one weatherproof external compartment as well as a roll-top compartment that holds up to a 15'' laptop. This roll-top backpack is designed for the urban traveler who lives out of their bag. The Rambler expands from 1,000 cu. in. to 1,800 cu. in. to accommodate additional carrying capacity when needed. This advanced design allows the backpack to expand outward and is held together by side gussets. This expanded central compartment allows the cyclist to carry additional cargo when needed, when not in use the expansion seals flat and disappears.

There's a lot debate going on in the fixed gear blog 'o' sphere today (or in the streets). Go on any number of big name blogs to see what the talk is all about. I wanted to throw my two cents in after seeing this on Milano Fixed. I love tricks and have friends who rock at them, but this speaks about what stays true to me and track bikes... Keep Tarcking or keep going fast, just as long as you ride, that's all that really matters!
