Honestly never thought of myself as
A Suburban Nut!
When I got back into cycling, it hit me… I want a cool functional Sag Wagon of my own!
The idea behind Goldmember is that I wanted an original looking but modern performing Suburban. I have always liked they style and after finding this one that had been tucked in a barn on the farm for 20+ years, I just had to have it. She also has an alter Ego ‘Super Sag Wagon’ this is a term used by cyclists to describe the SAG (Support and Gear) vehicle that takes care of the cyclist and his bike while out on a ride or race.
