I'm looking to add a bike rack to the back of my bike and also a bike bag to attach to it. I just want something where I can haul around books, a few groceries, dvd movies, and other typically "small" hauls, etc.
Any recommendations for either of these two items? Do I need one with a spring? (and what's the spring for anyways? to act as suspension would be my guess?). Are they all pretty much the same or are these items that fall in the category of "you get what you pay for"?
Just looking for advice on what to stay away from, what you guys would recommend, and any other useful info and experience you can share on this topic. Also, feel free to point me to other threads that might have already covered this topic as I was unable to find any using the search feature!
edit: Also, forgive me if I posted this in the wrong forum. This forum looked somewhat relevant and busy :-)
