Commuting to work by bike is great. You’ll save money compared to the alternatives. Plus, you get to ride your bike, making it a win-win in our books.
But, let’s face it; most of the ways of actually carrying your work stuff aren’t exactly aero-looking. Your bike can be as aero as possible, but, if you have your work clothes and laptop in a huge backpack, could that be holding you back?
We wanted to find out, so we pitted the backpack vs a full bike packing setup vs panniers. If you’ve read this far before watching the video, comment with your predictions.
