Converting CAAD X Crossbike to Commuting.
Hey folks, last year I started commuting to work on my CaadX, I used a rear rack and a trunk bag by Arkle. THis year I thought I would be clever and purchase a set or rear Panniers to allow me to carry my clothing daily so I ordered a bug from Arkle. Well, its a beautiful bag however in it current configuration it is in the way of my pedal stroke. What are some options that would solve this issue? I do not mund sending this one back and getting a shorter bag, changing the rear rack, or other modifications... Just not the bike. Anyway, thank you to the collective brains of the group
A little info on the commute. I am a high school teacher, I need to be able to carry a laptop some days, I will leave shoes at work but will need to carry a pair of pants and a shirt + lunch. My commute is 15 miles one way in the rolling countryside.
