Bike Jerks X Trash Bags: Finished Project

So here's the deal, after planning on doing this for months and me consistently flaking out (the man has the patience of a saint) Andy and I got together, I laid out my dream bag, and he stitched it up in time for my trip to NYC.

It's pretty damn cool that he took the time to make a truly custom bag. It really speaks to the awesomeness of doing business with local folks.

The top pouch is for my wallet, keys, etc. The bottom pouch is for tools. Both are waterproof.

The straps on the side are for cargo. I fairly often carry wheels, frames, or the dreaded pair of rims. These straps, which Andy has nicely hidden when not in use, should work great for all of those items.

Thanks so much Andy!!

I'm trying to get him to make more of these so there can be an actual Bike Jerks X Trash Bags major collabo thing happening. We'll see what he says.

Sweet bag. I am interested in how the waterproof material works out. The material looks similar to that on a Chrome bag and the only reason why I'm not a fan of it is that when my back sweats, it gets sucked inside and soaks anything made with paper.
