  1. Those are wonderful pics of rando bags. I’ve been enjoying your blogs for a couple of weeks now. Great topics!

  2. Thanks for the bag additions/updates! I’ve seen (and liked) the Acorn seatbags but not the front handlebar bags.

    The Inujirushi is my rare bird/Audbon/Scarlet ibis sighting.

    They aren’t quite as rare here in Oakland – especially when I used to stop by Jitensha every weekend just to stare at the wares. I stopped, since I felt bad only buying random fender hardware and the flat bars.

  4. Great compilation! I am searching for a rando bag now, looks like I’ll have to be patient and wait for Acorn to start taking orders again in a few weeks.
