After 8bits excellent ultralight list and desire to go to a rear bag and a handlebar bag I thought I'd post a few pictures of my new setup. I've gone to a larger handlebar bag so that I can fit my sleeping pad and cooking gear in it and eliminate the front rack. I've found that a Carradice Junior bag makes an excellent handlebar bag. The other thing that I've done is copy the Acorn Bags (www.acornbags.com) idea of having D-rings on the saddlebags so that a strap can be used to carry them off the bike. A couple of bucks on some webbing and 4 D-rings and an afternoon of rather amateurish stitching and I'm happy with the results. The D-rings make it easy to carry either bag around town and as I always take the handlebar bag with me when I leave the bike it's proved to be a useful bit of handicraft.
