Timbuk2 Artcrank Messenger Bag Rose1

After more than 25 years of contributing to the dialogue of urban cycling, Timbuk2 continues to produce thoughtful product like the bags available now.

Kicking off this discussion is a series of ArtCrank poster-themed messenger bags. The “Rose Home” and “The Long Way Home” bags possess the same functional elements of Timbuk2’s other cross strap messenger bags (side-entry Napoleon pocket, reflective points, etc.). Each model features its poster theme on the inside of the flap and have exterior bag details styled to match. See their other Spring offerings after the jump…

I *really* wish Timbuk2 would offer an intrepretation of rando handlebar bag. Vo’s didn’t last and there has to be another option than custom.

The magnetic seat bag is a neat idea. Love my Especial Raider backpack so far. Good stuff.
