    Latest Load with my XPort...........

    I got a great deal on some new bike bags. They just came in yesterday.



    Bike Travel Bag, Bike Case, Bicycle Travel Case ? EVOC USA | Evoc Sports USA

    They finally got delivered to my work address. 24.4 lbs a piece.

    Loaded them up and rode on home...............

    Latest Load with my XPort...........-xport_load.jpg

    What I learned:
    - Loading something "high" like that makes the bike squirrely due to the high center of gravity.
    - Using bungee cords to anchor the load like that makes things worse because the load can swing around more there by shifting the load.

    I will be getting myself some lightweight tie down straps soon.
