If you dont want stuff on your bars - and I get it, its in the way of gps mounts, lights, etc - a small frame bag tucked behind the head tube is really nice to have too.

I think a burrito bag with a decaleur is pretty great.

I continue to be amazed at Jan Heine's ability to troll this forum without participating in it

Don't underestimate the intoxication of a societal trend.

He'll probably tell you it's more aerodynamic too

Somewhat ironic comment in the thread, but I don't disagree. This bag isn't for the outdated stereotype René Herse customer, it's for the new market being sought - gravel and to a limited extent, bikepacking. Where the luggage and process of carrying such is always less than optimal but the riders make do because that's what's available to them.

The same thought process behind tire-width limited racing bikes - "23mm tires make my hands and backside hurt but that's what racing bikes have so that's what I'll use."

Strap on a burrito bag and it bounces all over and makes the handling feel weird when you really need it to feel intuitive but oh well that's just how it is.

Well given the absurdity of this thread, I’ll jump in to point to Eve and Kenny Shopsin’s (RIP) in NYC as clear category winner here—600 soups and a menu that went on page after page, just about everything you could think of in Western cuisine, exquisitely served up.

I could care less about the bag, but the Waylon reference is

Lord, I've seen the world with a five speed cassette
Looking at the back side of me
Ridin’ my bikes and one of his now and then
But I don't think René done 'em this way
No I don't think René done 'em this way
