Help!! I'm addicted to bags I can't help myself(21 posts)

Help!! I'm addicted to bags I can't help myselfDjudd

Saddlebags, wedges big and small, rack packs, I love them all and varied paraphelnalia that come with them. I have four bikes and each bike as two bags except the commuter which has four bags of its' own. I have three Carradice saddlebags and am pining for a fourth (the Maybeck), wedges...I have a couple minis and a Carradice Super C. I have the Performance extra large rack trunk. I could go on. The real trouble is I want more, the new Rivendell panniers look inviting, Mountainsmith makes a fanny pack that could be a treat. I can't stop. I know I'm weak but bike bags have thier own allure, when they function correctly they are an invaluable part of a good ride and most are cool to look at. Am I alone in this addiction? c'mon time to 'fess up
Yes. All alone. (nm)TFerguson

In fact, I don't own a single bag and haven't for at least a few years. I do, however, have the world's largest collection of the little black rubber bands that usually come with inner tubes.
You could move up to 'full size'... Bungees!rwbadley

Motorcycle touring used to mean a homemade rack and a dozen bungees.

Just think, a rear bike rack loaded with items for weeks worth of cycling held together with stretchy rubber thingies. I get excited just thinkin' about it...
Yup. Prolly all alone...baylor

but destined to ride a coast-to-coast tour self supported, I suppose, and that ain't all bad.

unfortunately, backless dresses remove any possibility of storage pockets.

FOUR Carradice bags? That's just weird, man. I draw the line at three, plus a Baggins Hobo Bag (my current favorite), a Candy Bar Bag and I'm thinking about a Banana Bag. Plus some day packs, a cool Mountainsmith Day Cruiser fanny, a half-dozen little wedgies I don't use since I got the LowSaddle Longflap and a few more.
Check out the Hobo, though. That's a great bag.
And you seem so normal otherwise! nmPdxMark

Got a garden hose hanger just loaded with 'em - all descriptions, some just slightly used. Virtually all of them are good riding tires, except I'll never re-mount the Armadillos. Just got the TdF Pro Race, and even thinking about that makes me want to order some this now. Fingers hover unpredictably over keyboard...
Bags? Hate 'em.
