    Carrying keys?

    How do you guys carry your keys on the bike?

    I carry mine on a carabiner clipped to my D ring on my bag.

    I use one of those clip on keyring things, and clip to a belt loop.

    like this but metal.

    Well, I carry a house key and my kryptonite evo mini key, but was looking for ideas to speed up locking and unlocking.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    On both of my bags, I put a caribiner into the strap for a handy place to keep the keys. On my chrome bag, for example, it's right above the buckle, where the stabilizer strap would attach. That way I can get at them pretty easily.

    The only thing is that they jingle quite a bit when I'm going at a certain cadence. On one hand, the noise can be annoying, but it can also alert people that can't hear my bike.

    Oh, leaving without my bag has also caused me to lock myself out of my building twice.
