The allure of the Chrome_20 holiday pop-up hub proved too strong for me, and I grabbed some stuff including the Barrage Cargo backpack. Been using it everyday, and so far have been really happy with it. Planning on doing a full video review, but now here’s a little video of me unpacking all kinds of holiday mess before last week’s Echo Park Bike Posse annual caroling ride. This thing is really sturdy, comfortable, and it holds a ton. Barrage Cargo Packpack at Chrome Industries
Chrome Industries has been hosting a bunch of cool events to celebrate their Los Angeles holiday pop up hub. The shop is next door to Orange20 bikes, and Edson Palucha, who works at o20, hosted this race last week as part of his FOOseries. It was all uphill fixed gear brakeless sprints in Elysian Park. I couldn’t make it out (I was busy gearing up for a holiday caroling ride that night), but it looked like a lot of fun.

For my wallet. I’ve had my eye on one of their solid bike messenger-quality backpacks for a while now. Better go check my balance. Opening party this Friday night, located right next door to Orange20 on Melrose. There’s also a mess of races and bike events to go with the shop, check ’em out here.
