    A really small bag..

    Sorry if I am bit off kilter here. I am looking towards commuting and I have a road bike... I dont want to attach panniers because I will never need all of that space... I dont want to use my Jansport backpack primarily for sweat and size reasons... In short is there a bag I can somehow attach to the triangle of my bike or someplace else, which is small, space enough for a shirt and a wallet+cellphone, without having to take a backpack or panniers.. I would be open to a very small backpack too... I tried search but didnt turn up much.
    Thanks,
    -AJ...

    Get a rear rack and a top bag for it. it's what I use and works fine for limited volumes.
    It's either old age or I need more suspension...

    You could get a largish handlebar bag and some Carradice-style underseat bags may do the trick as well, but I think a frame bag may be just the thing for you.

    Ya, i would go for the larger underseat bag. They are usually pretty easy to remove.

    How about a BIG saddlebag? It should be big enough for your shirt also....

    A carradice SQR saddlebag with a quick-release mount would be ideal. They have much better volume/weight ratios than a rack+rack-top bag.

    Thanks for the opinions all... I am really liking the carradaice saddlebags/big seatbag.. The frame bag looks like a good fit too.. Something detachable is great between rides and commuting... I will post later as to what I end up getting...
