    Why do so many of these bikes have a massive bag on a front rack
    (instead of in the back / like with a regular rack above the back wheel).
    Is that just en vogue right now or do people prefer the handling?
    I never liked to have much weight in front of the bars, I have never been a professional / long distance / "touring" cyclist or whatever you call that so genuinely curious as to why people seem to prefer this kind of setup.
    Here in Berlin people who carry stuff usually have these bags you hang on both sides of the back wheel. Well, actually the majority of people I see just uses backpacks.

    Good stuff.
    Third to last is my favourite.

    And that curvy part of road with the benches.
    You did post a shoot of that before right?

    still worry I’ll have the same problem where they just don’t stay in

    ..google some pictures or youTube videos -
    the cable does not go straight down, but up, then behind the ear - so there's no pull on the earbuds like with normal ones, the first centimeters are bendable like a wire so you can sort of mold them to your ear. This works really well, and still works with thick sunglasses I've found.
    Also the earbuds have those foamy kind of tips that you squeeze before you insert them so they then expand again when in your ear (this is part of what blocks outside noise so well and it also helps with them not falling out as easily).
    Not gonna lie this all is a bit fiddly / unusual at first but sound quality is very good and they're comfy and don't fall out easily.

    I only went for different kinds of headphones as I have to talk to people a lot intermittendly, and actually they isolate outside noise so well it isn't really enough to pause the music as you'd still have trouble hearing somebody speaking to you with those earbuds in if they don't have quite a loud voice..

    If you're ok with earbuds that shield ambient noise very much then I'd say Shure SE215.
