    carrying stuff without eyelets

    Hey, got a 1991 Trek 1200 and it has no place to mount a rack so I can carry stuff. I don't really need to carry alot. Just two things. I want to carry the little tire repair kit I got from walmart. Its a 6"X3" plastic case containing tire levers and patches. Also I would like to be able to carry a cable lock.

    That is all I need to carry with me.

    Can it be done?

    A beam rack would work. It connects to the seatpost. or get a large saddle bag.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Seat bag/wedge. Then pick up a handlebar bag (like a Cannondale) for your rides where you'll be taking off your jacket or carrying smaller items. You can then leave it at home when you don't need it. I use one on my Crit frame.

    I like chain reaction... $10 for a saddle bag. Too bad its in Euro. I was expected $30-50, but don't want to spend more than enough to get the job done without causing problems.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    Are you sure it has no eyelets? I rmember the Trek 1000, 1100, 1200 to be sort of 'road sport' bikes, and 1991 was before the current era of road bikes that are completely useless as utilitarian bikes. I recall flat aluminum dropouts that had plenty of room to have a rack mount hole drilled through it, so I can't imagine why in 1991 Trek would not make the bike more useful.
