DIY O-Ring Strap
Our initial hack functions wonders not only for functionality (we all could use a longer strap from time to time!), but also to add a bit of flair. Personally I bought my speedy prior to the Speedy B was a factor, and even though I am unsure which I would have selected had the Speedy B been about currently, nothing at all beats the original.

Interior Bag Shapers
My favored hack of all, even though a lot additional sensible than exciting, are these extremely valuable bag shapers. I had my Speedy 25 packed away in storage for just about five years with out a single use. When I took my small lady out for a spin I was upset at how misshapen it was. I utilised to retailer it flattened out, and even though I’ve begun to retailer it super stuffed, it nonetheless does not hold its shape effectively at all. I am about to order a single of these for my bag also!
