You could roll it up and strap it to the frame.
Thanks for the quick answer. Strap it like with a velcro or something?
I haven't used it yet, but I plan to take it with me whenever there's a chance of rain or really cold or windy. I need it for solo training and group rides. I don't do MTB or commuting. Was this a wise choice? Or I should have opted for a softshell?
If it's only a chance of rain, most guys usually pack a super-light waterproof cheap rainjacket that can fit in a jersey pocket or even a tennis-ball container/water bottle.
This jacket is something to take when you know for SURE it will be raining most of the ride.
For simple cold wind it's better to take something that is just wind-resistant and treated with a water repellant... like polartec's wind-pro
Oh... That makes sense... Cause I've never seen anybody pack a jacket like this. I guess I'm gonna use it only in really bad weather.
I'm not familiar with Polartec's products, but I have also ordered these:
3 days ago I was out with 10° C wearing a short sleeved merino base layer + summer jersey + arm warmers. Well it wasn't enough. Not to mention my lycra shorts + leg warmers didn't do a thing to warm me. So I ordered this:
I just hope I can layer up or something so I can enjoy the winter rides. It was all good during the warm days. Now I feel the Flyte jacket was unnecessary since I don't plan to ride with rain

Well, the important thing is to keep your core warm. If you sweat out the clothes they'll be quite cool, so the trick is to keep body temperature in the appropriate zone by adjusting all the time and thus preventing the sweating. Anyways, all nice gear you've got, i'm sure you'll figure out the right combo!
Thanks a lot electrik! I'm just waiting for the new clothes to be shipped. Then I'm gonna try and see.
Again, thanks for your answers.
When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.
Not cheap, especially as you'll need a 'bagman' as well as the bag. However, they'll fit on pretty much any bike, including an out and out road bike. Sizes range from 10l bags up to 23l.

If you are in Greece, you might find it cheapest to buy from a local or UK supplier.
