    Looking for inexpensive < $50 clippable bike trunk bag

    I want to get a trunk bag for my bike. I would like to be able to do some light grocery shopping and commute to work with a change of clothes and lunch. I want it to be a bag that will clip onto the rack so it will be secure and quick and easy to get off. Does this mean I need to get the same brand bag and rack? Or do they make some bags or racks that are interchangable for clipping? I would like to spend no more than $50 for the bag.
    Thanks!
    Mike

    Not sure where your located but Google around for bike swap meets or a reg swap meet. Those bags seem to always be at those places. Check out sales as well. Good luck.

    I have an Ortlieb that is in excellent condition that I'd sell for that (plus shipping). I seem to remember it going for around $130 new, but I don't use it anymore (went to a seat bag). I could not find a picture of it on the web, but if you are interested I will take one and forward it to you via email (just PM me with an email or PM me and I'll give you my email address).
    On the move!

    I haven't used that, but I like my Avenir wedge bag. I move it from bike to bike.
    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?
