    Got some new stuff!

    Today I went to the local shop and picked a Scott Taal helmet. I also got the Park tools chain cleaner kit for less than Amazon, got some lube for the chain and a seat post clamp that will hopefully fit, so that I can get away from that allen head clamp.

    I also got the VP Vice pedals in the mail Monday that I will be throwing on tomorrow as well as the Crank brothers multi-tool, and rockshox fork pump.

    Finally getting all the essentials rounded up! All I've got left that I really need is just a spare tube and a good mini pump to put on the bike. I'm also looking at snagging up a better camelbak, likely the Mule.

    Sounds like Xmas in April! I have the mule and I love it. More than enough room for anything I'd want to carry on a 2-3 hr ride. Plenty of water storage. Make sure you get the updated mule. It's got a better back design and several new added features that make it worth getting over the old version.

    I like Ospreys bags a lot. Their helmet system is a great bonus and their bag designs are top notch especially the bags with the tool pouch.

    Raptor is great for most, if you have a full face helmet though the zealot has an awesome feature to hold your helmet without flopping around.

    I have a zealot and I love the bag, good main pocket, great tool pouch, good design on your back, fits snugly with a good amount of weight and doesn't make itself known while you're riding.

    Their magnetic clip is great as well.

    I also have their Radial pack for riding to work, just to completely hijack your thread .

    It is quite a bit larger than the hydration packs but it can hold my work clothes, water, tools, laptop, cables (I am a DOCSIS engineer so lots of cables) and a few other goodies comfortably. The pack stays on tight and has a nice cutout where it rides just above your neck so you can hold a position. The back padding is also suspended so it does not touch your back and keeps you completely cool.

    If you want something a little larger than the Mule they have two size options in the Radial. Before these packs I had a mule for a few years and loved it, I just ripped it to shreds and decided to go a different route.

    Best pack I have ever had, Dakine. I've had them all but this one is the only one I would recommend. I have about 7 years and multiple bladders but the bag is still as good as new.

    I've never had a Dakine. I do have a geiggerrig and it's been doing well since I purchased it but it would not work as well for biking with the way it sits. I do like Ospreys focus on the use in their design.

    What do you like about the Dakine? I generally replace the bladders in all my bags with Platypus systems, just a preference.
