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 […]

Baja Beach Adventure – Part 2

When we last left we were bedding down for the evening in a crazy windstorm. Well, the next morning wasn’t any different, we awoke to a solid 30mph wind out of the south. Upon packing up camp I noticed I had a rear flat so before we could head out I had to patch the tube. This […]
