Big old Grandma seat bag; try oneCory

The other day I was leafing through the Rivendell catalog and ordered one of those big canvas Carradice seat bags, the ones Grant says "look like a homemade pack for carrying coal." Huge stiff black thing, with glaring white leather straps, holds a Sunday Times, a sweater, tights, lunch, nine collie puppies and an entrenching tool, plus some crumpled paper to keep it from rattling around.
Had it on my commute bike for a couple of weeks, and it's solved all my problems except that nagging 10 extra pounds I can't seem to lose. If you're looking for a way to carry a lot of stuff, check it out. Looking dorky is good for your karma.

No matter how big your bag is, you will always fill it to capacity with "stuff" you deem important. To avoid carying too much "stuff" always go with the smaller bag, IMHO.

"looking dorky is good for your karma" that's nearly as brilliant as beavis (circa 1997), "i hate things that suck"
