Anyone here use a fanny pack? I like to keep my radio in mine when I'm biking
If I wanted people to laugh at me I'd wear spandex. I carry a satchel. It holds more and no one will ever ask "Hey is that a fanny pack?". No offense to you clearly.
Ummmm, no. The accepted way to carry stuff on a bike is either in a Camelbak, messenger bag, panniers, handlebar basket, rack, or jersey pockets. Fanny packs are totally unacceptable.
I'm not gonna dog you for wearing a fanny pack, but I will say that I was with a guy that was carrying one on a 60 mile ride, and he ditched it before mile 15. Said it was killing his back. Only problem was that it Camelbak fanny pack, and was holding his water. We had to stuff the bladder in his jacket pocket. He hasn't worn it since.
Fanny Pack. Kind of says it all doesn't it. Do you carry nutri grain bars and Band aids? Whatever happened to going around completely unprepared? I miss the good old days.
I sometimes use a fanny pack also so I can keep my pets with me when I ride
Hmmmm, do I really want to know?
I really want to know.
My cat would kill any pet small enough to fit in a fanny pack on sight.
You have an Attack cat huh? How did you train him. Is he armed?
It's a she. She was a stray that just showed up one day and adopted me and my gf. Being a stray that had to fend for herself, she kills anything smaller than her on sight.
Sounds like some one I know. My cats name is squeaky. She is squeaky and she came with my GF. No abandonment issues just mean.
I won a fanny pack at an alley cat in Columbus OH. Made by a fantastic local bag company there, seagull bags. Used the thing only a few times so far. I think the idea is that it causes less of a back sweat/pain thing than a traditional courier bag, yet carries the essentials (basically tube replacement logistics -- a purse sized volume) just fine.
In any case, my point is that this is passed of as quite the "hipster," if you will, item in these parts these days. Sure, ironically so, but hip none the less! And waterproof! With reflective accents!
Fanny pack doesn't work on my new primary steed. There is plenty of storage available on the bike itself, so no loss there.
I would imagine on bent rides it would cause some issues.
now i want a fanny pack, and NEED a helmet.....
I believe the preferred term is "lumbar pack"
Manpoint deduction for fanny packs & man purses !
It's a satchel. Indiana Jones has one.
