 I want it all from my tires, super sticky, long life and a good ride. Unfortunately, that's not a reality, with tires there generally has to be some compromise. If you get a sticky tire you won’t get long life and vice versa. Those facts have not stopped me from looking for the holy grail [...]

Tail bags aren't the only item in Kriega's arsenal, though. I'll be putting the spotlight on their Urban WP Messenger Bag. I've been commuting almost daily [...]
