Default Commuting to Work or School on your Bike.

Saw a guy on the Interstate today with the cool Carbon backpack. Got us thinking.

For those who use their bike as primary transportation.... Yes some of us don't have cars.

Do you back pack ? Tank Bag ? or just walk around in our boots and gear all day.


What do you guys use to carry your daily essentials... lunch, sneakers, laptop etc?

I dont often commute to school but do to work. I use a tailbag to carry everything which has negatives and positives. I dont like using a backpack unless I have to because I dont like the strain on my back, however, the tail bag makes the bike a lot less sporty and look awkward. Oh well.

I use a tailbag. Sometimes i have to use the tailbag and.saddlebags. yeah, it definitely makes it less sporty. But i think it makes the bike look better to the police. Seem to have less problems when i use them.

I use my bike to commute to school/work more than I use my car.

I use a backpack and keep my gear with me.

I will be commuting to work often on my bike next summer, and since I hate the look of saddle bags, I'll be rocking a backpack. Need to look into a special one to protect my work laptop however

Default bags..

I commute to school all the time, and pretty much anywhere I go I need a backpack. Hate the FFFFFFF out of wearing it. Makes it so much more difficult to turn around and look, makes me want to be lazy and not get my aAASS off the seat.. Wish I didnt love my zx10 so much and could go with something that doesn't look dumb as hell with bags on it.. owell maybe when I get old.
