I'm able to ride to work again! My question is: when I rode before I could leave my clothes at work (I had a real office, now I'm in a cube so I used a daypack to carry the misc. stuff I needed. Now I'll need to bring clothes with me. I'm looking at larger (2,000cu in) backpacks & considering a messenger bag. I liked wearing a backpack beacuse it felt like a part of me and moved when I did. Messenger bags seem like they'd flop around and not move with me but would possibly hold more (I'm considering the Timuk2 pro messenger medium). I don't want to put a rack on the bike, I'd rather move my body rather than muscle a loaded bike around. What are your thoughts and experiences?
