front loading vs rear loading
last week i rode to work with the load up front, this week i used my carradice nelson longflap saddle bag.
both felt okay to me, different, but not all that different.
out of the saddle climbing with the load up front seems to be a little easier, the bike does not sway side to side as much.
the carradice is super convenient, its like the trunk of a car...just chuck it in and go.
as far as handling goes they both do okay, but not as sweet as my XO-2 all loaded up, that bikes handling with a load is superb!
