Timbuk2 Especial Tres For Sale

Selling a Timbuk2 Especial Tres rolltop backpack I bought last summer that I just simply don't use anymore. It's just sitting around in my apartment and would rather it go to better use with someone else. The bag is perfect for someone who regularly commutes on bike and carries a lot with them, great traveling bag, for school, or just for someone who needs a lot of space in a bag. It's a very comfortable bag, even when fully loaded. Fits up to 40L but can be compressed down when you don't need…See More

"Hi Samuel, I've got this Fuji available for $300.  It's a 58cm, which is very likely to big for you, but feel free to contact me for a test ride.  A little to big is better than a little to small IMHO, but if you are going to…"
