Rack to specifically carry backpack, in the US - found one in another country
I recently ran across this from someone who apparently uses is to carry their camera bag on their bike -
When I was going to school I always wished I could find a rack that was specifically designed to let me carry my backpack on my bike, other than trying to tie a milk crate to my regular bike rack.
Has anyone seen something like this in the US?
Check this out:
It can be used as a pannier on a regular rack or like a trunk bag on their Arkel Randonneur Rack.
hey, thanks for replying. That is very interesting.
Still curious if anyone has seen a rack for a generic backpack before...I know in school that Arkel bag would *not* have been big enough for all my stuff, lol.

If you get one let me know how it works out. Might be useful on my errand bike.

This is really the first strapping system that I've been completely happy with for my backpack so far.
If you do get the klickfix, please report back on how you like it. I was eyeing one of them a few months back, but never did pull the trigger.
