    How to carry a laptop

    Hi,

    Sometimes i need to take my work laptop back home with me. I usually carry it on my back, and it ways about 4 Kg. The way back from work is a climb of about 280 meters, so i would like to strain my back as less as possible. Are there any solutions for safely mounting a laptop on the bike?

    Trailer is a bad move as are panniers. Hard drives do not handle vibrations well. If the head hits the disk its over. Your body is a wonderful shock absorber. Maybe try to find a bag that will let it sit lower on your back, and get a rack/pannier for the rest of your gear so that the only thing on your back is the laptop.

    Another idea. If you have a computer at home, maybe just buy a large solid state memory stick to move files with? In addition to being lighter, they can take quite a beating.

    Thanks for the responses, guys.
    I already have a comfortable back-pack that i currently use. Guess it is the best solution, and i will have to bear the weight.

    maybe a messagner bag would redistribute the weight the weight over a diff angel on the body, and maybe be more comfortable.
    I use messanger bags over backpacks for this reason.
