It’s kind of funny, because this Deuter Speedlite 10l backpack, was the first I owned. But I had to go trough all the pain of testing the other options out.
When I started bikecommuting I rode with a 30l special-vented backpack. This was way to big and way to heavy, cause I took all this “just in case”-items with me. Then I moved on to a 27l Klickfix-backpack, which I attached to my seatpost. This setup got to much weight on the back of my bike, so it didn’t feel that sporty anymore. At last I tried this 10l backpack and now I love it. Here’s why:
1: It’s the lightest solution. 350g Backpack with no mounts on the bike.
2: It doesn’t affect the handling of my bike.
3: It’s so small, I really only take what
I need. There is no “what if” or “just in case” item. If something happens I have to be creative 🙂
4: It doesn’t destroy the look of my precious red steel bike.
5: No fear of a stolen bag, when I’m shopping for groceries or liquids while on a bikeride.
Which bag-option do you prefer?
