I've spent the last few days rerigging the Long Haul Trucker for a little winter touring, and added on a few little accessories I thought some of you might find useful somehow on your own rigs.
1) Snackbag/stuffbag for quick grabs. I took a climber's chalkbag I had in the closet (never used for chalk, thankfully!) and laced it to one of the bag loops on my Brooks. Here's pics of it with a 20 oz water bottle, then with a can of almonds with the bag open, then cinched shut. It's pile lined and I think it will do double duty as a cold drink holder / snakbag/ quick grab pouch.
2) The krypto mini attachment along with the dog-n-driver spray mount, tuck up nice between the seat tube and seat stays on the non drive side.
3) camera clip carabiner for real 'on the fly' pics. Also for clipping gloves, little bags from conveinence stores, etc etc.. I'm not risking an expensive camera mounted anywhere on the bike while riding, I 'll use cheap disposables for the necessary on the fly quick snaps. I can shoot over my handlebag without unclipping the camera, just holding it up at the end of the leash gives enough point and shoot. I don't use the viewfinder in these instances and still get pretty good framing.
