    Question on Pack maybe?

    Hi everyone I have a Mountain Bike
    Diamond Back Response Sport

    and Its about a mile to school, and half mile to work
    I dont like backpacks when I ride but if I must I will...

    I am looking for something to go over the back tire to possibly hold my books if possible any ideas?


    I have seen some things but I need something sturdy due to I like to jump things like curbs and off 2 -3 foot walls and I do not know if the racks I have found will hold up to that? and do not want to spend 100+ for it to break...


    I dont care if it HAS to be top of the line long as it wont break if I jump off walls and embankments everyday...

    Thank you!

    Here's one solution (quick release bike racks) but a backpack is likely your only solution if you plan on 2-3 foot drop offs as well.

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Suck it up and get a Chrome. I've been in fights wearing it (not ideal), much less various urban cycling antics.

    commuting bags, pro's and cons.

    tad gear packs
    bombproof
    modular
    versatile
    can go from very small when unloaded to very large when loaded with groceries

    I prefer back packs for an even load on my shoulders but if you're looking for a messenger bag then

    pac designs ultimate oversize
    massive load carrying capacity
    totally waterproof
    bombproof
    the couriers' favorite

    No problem - I have one of the TAD gear bags. There are other options though - check the commuting bag thread that I linked.
