I mixed up the type of seat bag
It's a Timbuk2,

It's held up pretty well and it Velcos off/on.
My camera and keys fit right in.
It seems to hold securely but now that I've said that....
Sorry I missed your post yesterday.

Are you using Velocity Chukkers, or a deeper wheel?
Thanks for the comment. It's so great that the 'Liner frame is chrome.
It was kinda the start of having everything else be metallic too.
I could never ride with the big gearing and the hipster bars.
I'm keeping the gearing the same but swapping in the fat back tire.
So I'll probably finish with the the VeloOrange Porteurs.
I've seen them on a couple of other builds.
They're 19" wide so I can crank on them up hills (or just getting across the street from 0 mph)
I had to go look for "chukkers"
They look really nice for a wide tire.
After today, I thought mine were "Deep Vs" but I was told today (LBS mech) that's "Deep V" is a "brand".
Coasties calls them Super Deep Vs and where a Velocity can take a 48mm presta stem (lbs mech again), these need 60mm Presta.
They're rather narrow but so are mtn bike rims these days.
Not sure who makes the rims for sure.
But found out today that you have to get the tube and tire on just right.
Blew the fat back tube so i now have more on order.
I'm pushing the limits of the tire/tube combo for these rims.
If I get it just right, then it will work fine.

Thanks Bud. The wheels are kinda unique that they give more shiny metal
where normally you wouldn't see it on this type of bike.
They ride good and solid.
Glad to see yours up and running too. Looking good!
I'm going to get a video of mine eventually...

The wheels WITH that frame MAKE this build. Awesome ride!!!!
Thanks for the comments and compliment. I agree the frame/wheel combo matches.
Dumb luck pays off again.
I've seen some other bikes with a frame and the wide rims matching and I really like that too.
Since I'm waiting for more tubes, I will put another pic from yesterday.
I couldn't get it in the sunshine so no full glare
The river is so awesome!
