C*T in a Bike Shop

Queer/Multi-Ethnic/Cis-Female/Bicycle Mechanic--
Working at an undisclosed bike shop with some dudely Dudes


This bag was really intense to make. It has a full liner from an old banner and they kinda suck to work with. The bag features a padded zippered computer sleeve, Sternum and waist straps, roll top and large front/side pockets. Its for a friend who is taking in on many traveling adventures, she needed a big water proof, rugged bag and I am pretty sure I delivered. 

My friend Marina makes amazing bags: handlebar bags, backpacks, messengers, side bags, hip bags, this enormous custom travel bag… you name it. 

I’m moving to Dublin for 6mo-year in November, and I plan to do a lot of traveling around Europe. (Tattoo tour? Maybe?)

While I’m still in MA I’m going to be taking at least two day-long trips a month out to local-ish watering holes. I’ve only got this summer to experience a bit of North Eastern landscape.

I plan to take this bag every time, and to have it good and worn in on it’s maiden-out-of-country bike trip. (Irish Coast in the early winter? Maybe not.)

Full review coming once I get it!
