    I've been looking to get a B17 but unsure whether to go with the standard or narrow. My sit bones are at 110mm and I ride a 130mm saddle atm which is comfy. Will I suffer on a Narrow or should I just go with the standard and be done with it? I'm just worried the standard will be too wide and cause my cheeks to numb, but then again I guess overtime it will mold to my butt.

    ye great bit of kit. Don't use the full size bottom zip as I've got bottle cages mounted but still fits plenty of my essentials. Got caught in a very heavy downpour one day and the zips couldn't handle that type of weather but still solid regardless.

    Looking for bmx bars with a 5 inch rise and cross bar. Ideally not cut. Pic for reference.

    Camera bags can be a nice alternative. I picked up this Lowepro for £15.

    New bits

    -Front messenger rack from Ridewill.it. £38 delivered
    -Rear rack from eBay £10
    -Blackburn Outpost frame bag large from Tweeks £50
    -Cargo net and bungee cords from eBay £8

    Rear rack needed some diy’ing as the only frame mount is for a mudguard I assume on the underside of the frame in the centre. Easy fix just bent one of the mount arms to shape.

    Completely forgot about the amazing custom feed bag @Valentina made me a while back! I'll be testing this out properly in a few weeks but I love it. All the bags are beautifully made, customised to how you want them and she uses recycled inner tubes too! I went for the camo, purple, green and black to match the theme of the bike.

    Here's her website https://vpaintzupcycling.com/

    First test ride out today and feels great. Having to get used to a wider grip as I’m so used to my narrow bars on the fixed gear :).

    More bits to come: Decals, front + rear racks, frame bag (+ possibly a few others), bottle cages, mud guards

    Edit: Just got home and honestly I'm surprised at how smooth everything went. The highest gear (11-32) was actually nippy I wasn't expecting that. I haven't ridden a geared bike for many many years so it felt brilliant. The SLX shifter is super crisp and snappy and had no trouble moving through the gears. Only quibble is the brakes were a bit jumpy and squeaky.. @Tijs suppose that answers your question. Hoping after some wear they will settle down a bit
