They look gorgeous. Finally understand why you had 2 lefts showing in an earlier post as I hadn't realised you were having the 2 made... Does the bag not catch on your knees when pedalling
No, nowhere near, the fat bike is 100mm BB which helps

Re: Before I send it back- Columbia OutDry Jacket

Outdry sizes are weird

My Outdry is a medium, its big on me and I can wear is over 2 layers with ease Ilin winter too
