Enzo Gucci reviews Krieg Cycling bag.
So far, from what I see, I approve of the bag on your bicycle.
Now, there are some things that could be done to improve this bag.
First of all, the zipper could be made out of gold. Not the color, the metal. This would provide a nice contrast of colors.
The bag also needs some carbon fiber accents. What purpose would this serve, you ask? Weight savings? Nope. Durability? Nope. Improved storage capacity? Wrong again.
Style. 100%. Some may say there is such thing as too much carbon fiber. They are probably Nascar fans who would prefer stainless steel, fiberglass and Coors Light. For us European riders, Carbon fiber is a fashion statement.
Lastly, and most importantly, this bag is missing the true show of style. Look at the most expensive (and best looking) parts, bikes and accessories in cycling. SIDI's $450USD Ergo shoes, Colnago's $10,000+USD Extreme Power Bike, Pinarello's top of the line frames... what do all of these share? The Italian Flag.
Thats right. When you want a product to go from good to incredible (and incredibly expensive) you put an Italian flag somewhere visible.
THAT is the main thing this bag is missing.
Otherwise, it's great. I know you're married, Lyle, but have you been experiencing increased attention from the opposit sex since installing this bag to your bicycle?
As a matter or fact, I have.
