Tennis Bag Rack?

I am a sophmore in high school and bike to school daily. I have an 07 Kona Smoke. I am a tennis player and therefore need a huge bag to carry all my stuff. I need a rack or mount to help me out. Any suggestions?

Well, sonny, as an escapee from the C&V forum, I can say that when I played tennis in high school, it was with a wooden racket, and everyone had just one, and we carried them in our backpacks. But that's not what you asked.

I think your best bet will be a large front platform or cut-down basket that you can bungee your tennis bag on.

Ok thanks, that was mainly what I was thinking, but I just needed some reassurance.

You could carry a small child on this thang. It's expensive, but it's functional and bullet-proof.

Depending on exactly how big your bag is, I might consider using a Wike Golf Trailer to strap it to.

I would say try to pair down what you actually need to carry around with you, can't you leave some of your stuff in a locker?

As much as I usually like to promote putting cargo on the bike on racks and what-not, in this case if you need to carry things around with (say traveling to matches) then what about using a messenger bag as your tennis bag? The Chrome Kremlin or XL sized Timbuk2 should be able to fit anything you could possibly need for a day of tennis, and you would have the hippest bag at the meet.
