    Poor Man's Big Dummy Bags

    I guess this doesn't have to just be for poor men, this could be an option regardless of gender and/or socioeconomic status. . .

    Anyway, I've been intrigued by the various posts showing the assorted custom bags people have had made to fill the various odd and empty spaces on and around the Big Dummy frame. So, out of curiosity (and cheapness), I took my Jandd Mountain Wedge III bag and hung it under my Dummy's stoker bars. I found that it fit almost as though it was meant to be there to begin with.

    While it's got nothing on the Porcelain Rocket stuff or the Carousel Designs stuff, it works and adds a little more space for stuff. . .

    Awesome!

    I'm digging the Poor Man's Hydration System there also!

    Random question....Is that an Athens Bicycle sticker on the secondary downtube-ish section?

    Yes, it is an Athens Bicycle sticker. I'm a "retired" employee and happy customer.

    I assume you're familiar with them? Either that or you have very very good eyesight to read that sticker. . .

    Ah, cool! I thought the sticker looked familiar and then thought through which shops I'd recognize frame stickers from.

    I've been in and out of Athens a bit...first for AmeriCorps, and then came back this Fall as a grad student.
