Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First off, the orange and grey version is 5 STAR. The reason why the black is not is because kuat made it cheaper. Unfortunately, the chrome parts start to bubble and peel from being outside exposed to the elements after only a very short amount of time. 2-3 months in, living in southern California, started to show the finishing flaws of the black model. Certain areas or pieces start to rust, the chrome areas look like crap, and the rubber arch is now ground down the to the metal from pressing the ultegra rim brake on my road bike after numerous road trips north and west. A friend has had the gray and orange model 2 years longer than I have had the black version and his is still in superior cosmetic condition. Still the rack works well and I would rather have it over other brands.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Same thing happened to my bag last night Went to do a quick 22 mi evening ride on my roadie and noticed that the bag was hanging to one side. The clip broke on the right side of the area that is stamped onto the bag. Fizik needs to finally address this once and for all. Imagine all of the other broken bags out there that have been sold through other stores. I have the medium and it was filled with one tube, patch kit, and the lezyne dual air canister kit with ample room to hold much more. It lasted exactly one year.
