Attn Jonathan

In answer to your questions:

With a load* it rides pretty well over potholes - no shimmy.  Although the crater-sized ones will move it around a little, but it always re-centers itself.  And I'm able to lay it over on it's side without it moving much.  I already totally dig the convenience of it over panniers for grocery-getting.

*Load defined as:

  • A 2 lb ham
  • 1 lb of shrimp
  • 2 boxes scalloped potatoes
  • A 20 oz bottle of Safeway organic ketchup (as recommended by Joe T, a self-described ketchup snob)
  • A 28 oz bag of Trader Joe's frozen mashed potato "medallions" (if you haven't tried these yet, you are missing a modern miracle of science in terms of the convergence of flavor and convenience)
  • 6-pack of beer
  • Box of "little cutie" oranges
  • U-lock
  • Combo Cable lock (because I always forget the key to the U-lock)
  • Tape measure

I'm glad i'm not the only one that measures their ham right there at the store.

If you only knew how many times I've been kicked out of stores for measuring my ham. Glad the bag works good.

It always comes back to the cured meat with you guys, doesn't it.

I can't speak for the others, but if cured meat includes bacon, which it does, then yes.
