    Kilo TT: handlebar bag vs. Rack/trunk bag vs. backpack??

    I've been wanting to keep my Kilo Stripper pretty much bare bones. I use a messenger bag for my daily commute. But I've been doing longer rambles and need some other storage. Has anyone tried a handlebar bag on the Kilo? Does it effect the ride quality? How about rear racks?

    I tried a frame bag but don't like it at all, but maybe I didn't give it a chance, either.
    Best regards - steve

    If you can fit it in your messenger bag, I would just keep using that. It's versatile for on and off the bike and it keeps your gear close when you're off the bike grabbing lunch or taking a break or whatever.

    If you need a rack, I'd suggest a rear rack with a pannier bag. Preferably something removable that you can take off whenever you're not using it. That's sort of what I'm looking into now for my Masi Uno.

    How much stuff are you actually carrying?

    I like my Chrome Kardiel Shank but its essentially a glorified fanny pack.
