    Darn, I wanted a Western Flyer to match my Aeronaut. :-(

    Wow—no blue, no red. Feels like a death in the family.

    I can't image what could replace them.

    I feel like you retired both of my jerseys in the last fortnight. So in future, I'll proudly inform anyone who asks that 'It's a Tom Bihn. You too can own one, but not in this phenomenal colour.'

    From the decision to keep the 'corporate' colours over those with flair, I assume that Black and Steel are the perennial sellers. However, with the introduction of Iberian and Ultraviolet people want bright interiors to contrast the more conservative exteriors. I'm curious what the next couple of months will bring.

    Wow! No more crimson? It's a fabulous color--distinctive and visible, yet low-key (there's a depth to Tom Bihn crimson that I haven't seen in other manufacturers). I bought a Western Flyer in Crimson so it would stand out from all the black bags (e.g., when the flight attendant moves bags between bins). And it works so well with my Iberian packing cube. They're very different shades of red, but they don't clash.

    crimson and Iberian

    I had the same sentiment on the two colors not clashing with my Crimson key strap and Iberian large Stuff Sack, they are different, but complement eachother nicely.

    Arg! Arg! I was about to order an Aeronaut and now I know that I couldn't get a matching Checkpoint Flyer later? Gah! Guess I'll be holding out. I'm sure you all know not everyone is living the gray and black life.

    The Tri-Star in Indigo/Solar is back in-stock. This is the last time it will be available, and we don't have many, so order soon if you'd like one.

    Don't worry: colors like Indigo are leaving to make way for new colors that we hope to introduce soon.
    Current Carry: Founder's Briefcase (every day carry), Small Cafe Bag (every day carry), Shop Bags (groceries, extra random stuff), Aeronaut 45 (travel), Synapse 19 (day hikes), Smart Alec (longer day hikes), Skookum Dog Road Duffel (Medium) (travel), Clear Organizer Wallet, Travel Stuff Sacks, Organizer Cubes

    I lament the loss of Crimson, but having been around the block with Tom Bihn retirements before, I trust that the new stuff will be really awesome.

    This just underlines what I have observed in the past: don't hesitate to buy a Bag/Color combo that grabs you. They don't stay around forever.

    Perhaps in the future there might be limited runs of classic bags, bags discussed in the forums, that have a built in appeal? Like for example... (you know it's coming) the classic Steel/Steel/Cayenne Imago.
    Bags: Super Ego (Black/indigo w/cork seatbelt); Aeronaut (Crimson/Steel); 2 Medium Cafe Bags (Navy/Cayenne, Linen/Olive), w/an Ultrasuede Shoulder Strap Wrap; Large Cafe Bag (Cocoa/Wasabi) w/Absolute Strap; Imago (sadly lost to hazmat); a Brain Cell w/ another Strap Wrap; and a Shop Bag (Steel). Accessories: Bunches and bunches.
    Wanted: Zephyr or Empire Builder.

    Hey guys,

    With everything we have in the works right now (lots of cool new things and updates!) we don't have the woman or man power to make sure we post an update every time a bag or color is being retired. I hope that's understandable. We're busy right now because, in large part, we strive to offer you many different colors, designs, and options (because we like that too!) When we're finished with some of the big projects we're working on and have added more staff, we'll try this again. I'll temporarily close this thread in a few days.

    OK maybe not fluorescent. But maybe a mauve would be awesome. Actually, violet would be great, too.
