interungulate replied to the thread how much data a month do i need?.
" I've gone through 9.5 gigs this month (billing cycle restarts the 6th), but that's because I'm grandfathered into unlimited and want to make the most of it. I think if I needed to, I could go sub-2 gigs for sure. It should be enough for you too is what I'm saying :D "

" ok why don't you use whatever panniers you like for the bike part and borrow a backpack from your friends or ship one you already have to them? You don't have to carry it on the bike tour, right? "

True....but:

1. I have one on each already and they are color matched for each bike :thumb:
2. Moving contents takes 60 seconds until I forget to do it.

" Carlton did, in the fairly distant past, make some beautiful hand made road bicycles. Sadly, the name was bought out, along with the shop and, a few years later, the original Carlton ceased to be.

Since then, I have seen the Carlton name surface again, but this time on cheap mass produced and... "
