    Saddlebags

    I am looking for a good saddlebag and there seem to be many choices out there and I was wondering if you guys know of any standouts. I'm looking for a medium to large size one. Maybe I'm thinking too much about this peice of gear? Thoughts Anyone?

    I like the topeak ones, the quick-release is strong and easy to use.

    I'd say to go for a medium-sized one. If you go too large, you'll find the bag coming loose from being too heavy, or hitting the inside of your legs when you pedal from being too wide. You can always put extra things that don't fit in the medium-sized one in your jersey pockets.
