    What kind of bags?


    Handlebar?

    Panniers?

    For shopping?



    The best out there IMHO are Ortlieb but they are pricy. But they will last you forever.

    Nashbar makes decent bags and a lot less expensive.

    And for small, convenient, cheap bags that go on a rack, Sunlite makes a nice bag.

    These are my favourites ... Acorn Bags | Traditional Bicycle Luggage

    Btw, you should be posting these questions in an actual biking sub-forum ... General Cycling perhaps.

    You don't need a cat... find someone in the neighborhood with one and get one of their buckets. That's what I did.

    Absolutely not. That's ridiculous. For groceries, he would need the $219 bag for his $100 bike.

    Don't know but they are a total pain to work with. Unless you come up with an ingenious idea to attach and detach them easily then you can't take them with you into the store. And would you really want to be seen taking kitty litter buckets into the grocery? Plus they don't collapse. Try to squeeze into a door or through bollards is near impossible.

    I reused old hardware from a thrashed set of panniers, but some hooks and plasti-dip would do just as well.

    I only use one at a time with a regular pannier on the other side, so the width isn't an issue with bollards or doors.

    And yes, I have taken mine into the store several times... you're already showing up at the store on a bicycle in America. It's not like you are going to get less weird from there.

    Walmart has the M-Wave Double "Day Tripper Pannier Bag for $24.20 It's big and covered. I can't tell for sure, but I suspect that's for a single pannier not a set of two, although the pictures show both panniers attached together. No idea of how long they will last.

    there is always wait till nashbar has a sail, or see what is floating around in their return section if you are bent on saving money. racks bags and systems are Blaqpaks | Handmade in Portland & Guaranteed for Life.

    and BagBot has a big list of bag make makers so you can look at stuff and get and idea of prices, and what they look like like on bikes.
