Bike, loaded up
Hmmm. Got the bike set up with briefcase and front panniers, stuffed with a bunch of towels and misc junk to approximate load I may be taking, and went for a couple rides this weekend. Works well, but the ride is certainly different! Without luggage, ride is kind of Miata-like... very nimble and zippy. With luggage... ride isn't exactly a Cadillac, but it is a lot more... stable. Did get high praise from a kid maybe about 9 years old, on a bike, as we rode by: "hey, that's coool!"
