Keeping things attached to a rear rack
I got a rear rack for my 2nd bike for christmas, and found that it's of the type that has a sprung arm to retain loads, rather than using a bungee as with the one on my commuter. The thing is, it doesn't seem to hold my bag at all well. I commute with a shoulder bag strapped to the rack (usually carrying a ring binder file as well as tools and lock etc) and it never seems to stay put on the rack.
How are these sprung things supposed to work? There must be some way to secure a load with it...
