It’s no secret the AM:PM PR crew loves its neighborhood. While we typically talk up the local bars and eateries, there are other less calorically detrimental businesses that we think are equally neat. Just up Clinton St. from our offices, perfectly positioned just off one of SE Portland’s main bike boulevards on 23rd and SE Clinton, is the factory showroom of North St. Bags – a really cool bike bag and accessory company.
A well-made bike bag could come in handy for some of us, Pat: I’m looking at you. Others of us just drink coffee delivered by bike. If any of you saddle up frequently, just know that North St. is producing some solid bike gear. The company’s website makes it easy to choose your own custom bag color combos, including the base color, trim and lining. It’s these kind of details that I’m a real sucker for. A handful of bike shops in town carry the bags, but ordering online allows you to be the architect of your perfect pack.
While the waterproof designs are ideal for serious all-weather cyclists (ie. not me), I’m contemplating picking one up for use on hikes, and other upcoming summer adventures. Check ‘em out, and let us know what you think.
