Is there a bag to use with this rack?

Hi,
I won a Specialized Tricross front and rear rack set on e-bay. The front rack is advertised as being able to carry a six-pack (which I will not need). I bid on it half heartedly to go with my Tricross, but if I can't find a bag to put on the front, I might not use it. Any suggestions? I could use some extra room for my commute.
Thanks,
Kevin

It's hard to recommend anything without a photo of your rack. However, Rivendell sells a number of different bags that mount on front racks.

Tricross rider here.
Keep the racks, buy yourself a bungee net or two, they come in about 12-13' square size, 4 or 6 vinyl coated hooks, available from any hardware store or motorcycle outfit- amazingly strong and versatile system. I hauled home bunch of groceries still in supermarket bags - impulse shopping stop - kept in place by these nets. Watermelon was riding in front!

Ride safe and have fun
