State Bicycle Co. Wedge Frame Bag Test

I sort of inherited this fine-looking specimen of a frame bag when it didn’t fit on Thumbeena’s bike. I have to admit that I was a little baffled when it came to how to attach the Wedge to a regular double diamond frame, but eventually, I figured it out and I’ve taken it out into […]
