 We’re officially in the MTB news doldrums. Duffel bags and straps getting their own press releases lol. Can wait to read about custom logo socks and colored mips liners for the next few weeks.

 It makes a change from a CNC stem in a variety of anodised colours.

 It’s an ad. It’s posted by DHaRCO.

 @everythingsucks: Any brand can post. Pinkbike decides if the post they make gets put on the main feed. Im a big fan of trendy man purse type bags. So this post speaks to me.

 @SoftSoilSampler: Great, it's still an ad about a bag. Like it or hate it doesn't change that fact.

 @everythingsucks: so much not news, can't deny the reality of PB Outside, sad to see an era pass.

 @KK11: Irony of WalMart owning Backcountry.com now and selling insanely expensive knock off duffel bags hasn't gone unnoticed by me. They cost more than REI duffels.

Oh..and it's a perfect time for this ad to go up because Patagonia is actually selling their Black Hole Duffels at 40% off right.

 I try not to be so negative these days, but this really does fall into the category of "Who gives a flying f....."

 After reading PB every day since 2006, there's near zero reason to look at Pinkbike anymore. Hardly any real content, just reposted links to someone's video or press releases. Sad stuff.

 75% of Pinkbike content can be had 5 days earlier on Youtube

 if you've read Pinkbike since 2006... you'd be well aware that there just isn't shit to talk about mid January... same as it ever was.

For gawds sake, a damn duffel bag?

 @sanchofula: Again... same as it ever was. And since then, there's been 5 interesting articles posted. Seems like same old January to me.

 @islandforlife: True, but, this is the time to put out their own content with all the backing of the new owner. More shoot outs, lab tests, etc.....right?
  • 3 1
 you could always not click on the article. Or better yet, go film a video, review a cool product, make your own innovative product for us to talk about. Instead you complain.

 @yakimonti: Why? It's f*cking January, who gives a shit... readership is probably at it's lowest point right now. The team just did tons of stuff and need a break as well. This is probably when half the team is on vacation or coming back. Then it's time to implement the planning and resources for all the shit they want to do in 2023. They can't just snap their fingers and have content ready to go. I think sometimes people forget there are humans working on all of this and it's tons of work. Chill bro.

They've had the backing of a new owner for 17 months now, that's happened. They made the new shitty version of the Pinkbike Academy (that tanked), cut the Grim Doughnut (WTF?!) and made the amazing DH series. This is the new normal. They fired a lot of people, cut costs and are sucking in the ad revenue trying to make money. We'll see this year if the go tits up or not and possibly drag Pinkbike down with them. Though they did get a $150 million mainly from Sequoia Heritage in Feb '21... so we'll see if they're burned through that and if SH feels like they're performing well enough or not

 People use duffel bags... so yeah I get that this is a product that could have a press release. However, what is the point of spending money on a video, pushing a press release, advertising "custom" straps... but not showing the inside of the bag? Like not one shot or blurb on the actual functional aspects of the bag. Even in the video we had lots of jogging, small SUV parking, running through puddles, running over bridges, alluding to using a skate park... but no break down of how the bag is organized inside or a clear shot inside. How the bag is organized inside and how durable the outside is seems to be the two key points. I mean, unless you are someone who buys a bag because of the 90's neon leopard straps alone...

 Hahahaha, you'll be working in marketing soon.

 You clearly didn't read the informative press release. The bag has "all the features to keep your gear organised." And in regards to durability, its "super soft, weather-resistant fabric... looks the goods and can take a beating." This main point is so important they wrote it twice with only two other sentences in between!

I think the real answer to your question, though, is that Dharco knows that no one cares.
  • 10 1
 Dharco also has had blind designers in the pipeline for some time now.

 when will designers realize how inconvenient a single over-the-shoulder strap is for carrying a bag while simultaneously moving a bike around? Make. it. a. backpack. Fox seems to be the only company who gets this with their transition pack. its a no-brainer
  • 2 0
 Patagonia, REI, Bauer... All those companies make better, similarly priced, more robust duffel bags with backpack-style shoulder straps. I just snagged a Bauer duffel for $100 and it put my similarly priced Dakine duffel to shame.

 @corposello: But....but...but, its not bike branded. How will everyone know how cool I am and I poorly mountain bike if I don't whore myself out to the brands.

 Pro tip: sling that single strap over your head and then it stays firmly planted on your preferred shoulder, hands free!

 Albek have a pretty rad bag with back pack straps. albek.co/products/skytrail-51-duffle

 @VtVolk: wear it like a thong.

 Transition the strap across your body. Now you've got the bike on the opposite side.

And when you want to impress your mainstream (loser) corporate co-workers at the company sales event at a Hilton, position the bag against your butt. Grab the stem of your road bike in one hand, grab your dirty trail bike stem in the other. Roll both into the elevator.

 Wow. Such amazing. Will go good with my balenciagas and supreme headband. Maybe Gucci can collaborate so we can see nothing but city rats use it as a fashion statement and carry nothing but gum, loose change, receipts and a 5 year old mint that’s been rolling around. Oh shit lol sorry that’s just levy’s pockets.

 I had a bag. It was a regular black bag. It had a bright yellow liner so things inside were easier to find. I loved that bag.

 They've managed to tell us 3 times in one press release it can take a beating, but no real practical information more than it has an 'easy opening main compartment' - well that's the one box every bag I have ever owned has tick then!

 I just don't think there's enough duffle bag and strap choices. I mean, is this for DH, down country, enduro, xc, gravel, ebike, etc? Surely the ebike one would be 1/4" wider since, hey, heavier duty because ebikes??? Perhaps they should expand the range for each of those options Smile .

 I think if they added Kashima somewhere and made a custom pocket for your Pit Vipers, they may win over the cable routed through headset crowd...

 I will save 75%, and just buy the In-N-Out version. Only con, it will make you hungry after a ride.

 I gotta say, with every day that passes by, i am getting less and less inclined to read pinkbike articles. I clicked on this one purely because of the "what the f*ck" factor

 Keeps the sunlight out. Also works in reverse to keep the Dharc in.
