    Front rack/handlebar bag for Big Dummy?

    Anybody running a front rack with a handlebar bag on their Big Dummy? I'm planning to do some touring on my Dummy soon and would like a bag up front that I can access while I'm riding. I'm considering one of the small Nitto front racks and an Acorn Boxy Rando bag. Anyone have a similar setup, or any other handlebar bag setup? Details and pictures would be appreciated.

    I ride an XL Dummy with a long headtube, and I'm worried a rack-mounted bag might sit too low for me to effectively access while I'm riding. I also don't want to attach a bunch of weight to my handlebar, which is why I'm interested in the rack-mounted bags.

    Any and all contributions are appreciated!

    I just used one of the smaller Carradice bags on the Dummy. It didn't have the kind of access like you are looking for but it worked for storing stuff.

    I don't know, but Rivendell seems to have some pretty neat stuff.

    Personally, I would only go with the decaleur type of kit for a front handlebar bag/rack - makes it quick release and moduluar, for different bag set ups. Either that or one of those new integrated basket/handlebars that all seem to be coming out at the same time, and are all the rage this season.
