Although I don’t miss certain things about Philadelphia bike culture, one thing to miss is certainly the style. I’ve toted my Small Civilian Re-Load Bag with me all over Europe. Its acted as my carry-on luggage more than once, and I’ve never once regretted taking it with me somewhere.

One thing I could have lived without, is in cities where biking is less popular, the stares for having such a large back-pack bag. I don’t really care, but part of the fun of fashion is scoping out just how other people like you are rocking their style. I mean, everyone in Philly/NYC has a carabiner for their keys, you just don’t use anything else.

I just want to give ups to and my best friend Emily, who gifted me my custom beast.

mine is cuter.

She's hot.
