Probably, another debatable question from my side.
When carrying items while riding, like water bottle, repair kits, pumps, or other stuffs that you might need, What is the best option.... to carry them?
- On your cycle at saddle bag, handlebar bags, or pannier bags or etc.
- or, On backpacks, like hydrant pack, or simple travel pack.
While loading on cycle, it will increase the weight of the bike, thus affect a lot of things, like speed, traction, more reactive on corners. Like while using pannier bags.. it will increase rear weight, making it difficult on uphill.
Also while loading on backpack, it will tire you down fast if its a big load, decreases your flexibility, agility & etc.
So what is right way to do it?
The type of ride I generally, go to are commuting, mountain biking, & trailing. And the items I generally carry are
Commuting:Water bottle(x2), Laptop (17"), books, copies, repair kits, hand pump, few other accessories.
Mountain Biking & Trailing:Water bottle(x2), repair kits, extra tubes, hand pumps, candybars & few other accessories
