I do mainly lightweight tours and credit card trips so I don't typically need panniers. My preference has been a rear rack trunk bag, but a front rack randonneur bag is about the same size.
I'll probably have to build up a low trail rando bike with a big-ish front bag to see for myself, but I'm wondering if others have tried both extremes and have developed a preference.
I am mildly annoyed by front bags for no good reason other than I'm used to seeing the front wheel/hub/tire --and find it an almost meditative experience seeing them spin.
Who prefers front bags?
