Not much happening here, but I can’t sleep and stumbled upon this new bag by Crumpler. They call it “Kill the Messenger”. It looks not bad, I fell in love with Crumpler somewhere around 2004/2005, had a lot of bags from them for many different purposes. After 3-4 years I lost interested in their gear because they switched to much to the trendy/fashion thing.
But this new messenger bag looks solid and quite interesting. Made with a Berlin Messenger called Christophe, don’t know him in person, but he at least wears a Maikätzchen V Shirt, which is pretty nice. I guess I was there aswell… but that’s another story.
I’m keen to check out the bag, when I get the chance.

Roads less traveled, that’s Rapha Continental. Our friends of ertzui films, the people who brought us fixed city, had the chance to make a Rapha Continental Movie and they did a great job capturing a region which is not often seen on road cycling or at least traveling maps.
A area in the Czech Republic bordered by Germany and Poland to the west and the north, and Austria in the south. An area that over the years has been annexed by wars, seen parts reclaimed and ultimately divided up into administrative regions.
