Not too sure why it's not cool to wear a pack anymore. I've landed on my back after OTB and the pack has saved me damage more than a few times! I run a water bottle now too just to have a bit of energy drink for the long hot days.
I just bought a Source one as well. Seems okay.
I find most bike specific gloves expensive pieces of crap. I use Mechanix gloves from Home Dept and they last much longer and are way cheaper.
Funny how fork fenders are back in style again. That's it!!! I'm breaking out my old school T.H.E. fender!
What type of volume shoe is this? I bought a pair of 5.10 Impacts for this season but I'm finding them boxy and a bit too high volume for my foot.
Off topic but what pack do you use when you're hauling around a DSLR and lenses? I need a new pack for that.
