    I have the Topeak QR beam rack and use regular panniers on it to keep the center of gravity lower. Any good quality rack will give you great service and you will never want to use a backpack again...

    I'm ok with the single digits too but it's the below 0degF stuff that makes it hard. If I could use my snowmobile helmet, I could go much colder than that. But that would be pushing the limits and...
