    I got the finger from a trucker once. He yelled "commuting by bike?" and showed his thumb.

    I bought Panpack front panniers in part for that reason. I haven't brought them in planes as carry-on but have done so on trains and they make life easier. I'll probably get the rear panniers...

    My current lowest is 19" and it's all right but I'll probably go down to 17,6" when the chainrings need replacement.
