    thanks! also just realised kit list is something personal but I keep wondering if I'll be able to do this physique wise but also money/time wise. Probably should start riding my bike more and reading more interwebz.

    Shouldn't have started following this thread/dotwatching.

    I'm a shit rider but anyone willing to share his kit list on here? Going to start looking for other blogs but want to get some rough idea of cost if I want to commit myself to something like this..

    thanks!

    Have ordered some raccmer stuff and it seems to run truer to European sizes aka I can get my fat belly in a Large. Pretty decent jersey for 11.45 euro's!

    Thanks for the info! Running a carradice with the sqr block now but as I don't have to carry the laptop anymore it's way too big and saggy.

    Work clothes, don't mather that much, I just roll them up now and they are pretty decent while arriving at work.

    Jup, so the restrap seemed handy for the rain gear as it had bungy cords on which I could hang the jacket.

    front rack and panniers seem sturdier and less swingy tho. It's my commuting/tourer/winter bike so I guess the front rack wouldn't slow me down that much as I'm already slow :p

    Goddamn instagram and all the bikepacking hype.

    Hey guys,

    New to this and looking for a handlebar bar for commuting (60 km per day) only ( for now).

    Have finally worked out how to get my boss to agree I don't have to drag my laptop from and to work so I can finally ditch the big saddlebag.

    Want to get something smaller for up front.

    Ideally it would be a harnass with a drybag so I can unclip it at work, take it into the locker room and upstairs.

    Would need to be able to pack lunch, clothes, towel, and some rain gear.

    Have been looking at stuff online and the restrap one looks awesome but a bit overkill for commuting?

    Also, can someone tell me I'm being an idiot because this bike actually has eyelets for a front rack so I might just go for paniers?

    Saw two bike cops give a scolding to a driver parked on the bike lane. Nice start of the day.

    What a prick. Good on you for handling that situation so calm, I'd have lost it.
