What’s The Ideal Luggage Combination?
So remember my fixie bike around town?
It’s light and nimble and fun. So I need spoil all that by adding racks and luggage and stuff to it, to make it more shopping friendly. The question is, what’s the best combination? At the moment I’ve got a Carradice Nelson Longflap bag on the back, supported by the Bagman quickrelease thingamajig. This is fine for stacking up on a few essentials, or a run to The Cheap Booze Shop to stack up on Dutch Tramps’ Piss (which is sometimes essential).
No - I’m talking about those intermediate shopping trips. So what do I need for this?
- Rear rack onto which I can load the obligatory Ortleib pannier bags?
- Front touring rack for low-slung smaller bags?
- Front porteur rack, which I can strap a crate of beer big box of shopping to?
- Any combination of the above?
