I was recently mega curious as to where this elusive "panda" was in those photos tagged with the furry beast of bamboo.
Turns out, panda, for some reason I don't know, is term for photographing yourself, on your bike, usually no-hands riding. The more you're looking at the camera and not where you're going, the "cooler" you are.

What is a Panda on the Kogswell? I was looking at flickr and notice on Adam A. shots that there is a shot of a panda but I do not see it. What is it? The bag?

Towing this way may cause undue stress and wearing to the headset when the mounting
point is high. U could mount it to the 'no step' bar but then u will still have to deal with
wear on the forkends. The topic mentioned in the previous post adresses this wear issue.
