The Perfect Bike Briefcase

11 Jan

Last October, when I was dressing for success for a meeting with the new CEO, I asked for your opinion: which bag I should choose to replace my unstylish briefcase pannier? The votes came in for the FastRider Black Charm Shopper, which I’d seen in the company’s online catalog, but couldn’t find for sale anywhere. When it wasn’t at the ultimate city bike shop in London, I almost gave up. And then, Eureka! I found it for sale online!

The shipping cost almost as much as the bag, but I had to have it. I ordered it in early December, which meant it didn’t arrive before I lost my job. But I don’t care. It’s lovely and I’m finding it useful for trips around town, like taking my laptop in to the Apple store. I even took it to Las Vegas for a conference and it worked like a charm.

How far would you go to get the perfect bag?

    Confused. Conference, in Vegas? Do you already have a new job? If so, did I somehow miss the announcement?
    Love the bag… :o)

      I was already slated to speak at a conference in Las Vegas before the layoff. I had even expensed the air and hotel. So I went and spoke anyway. My talk was more about industry trends and user scenarios so it wasn’t a problem. It was a great networking opportunity, but no new job for me yet.
