- The best way to carry….
…a 17″ workstation on the bike!?
I’m changing locations in August and moving over the Yorkshire. I will be riding somewhere between 10 and 15 miles to get into our Leeds office and will be able to work from home on occasion.
I would prefer not to carry the monster laptop on my back so what recommendations do people have for a decent saddle bag or pannier? plus the usual work paraphernalia etc etcPosted 7 years agoGrahamSSubscribersoma_richMember
I have one of these I would sell for £40

I used a std. pannier (no pockets etc, just one big waterproof sack) and then my (at the time, 15″ MBP) laptop in a sleeve in that, and a bit of foam wedged in the bottom, and against the back for a bit of padding. Seemed to work ok for a year or so.
Pannier is totally waterproof too, which is handy. Pockets etc. in the pannier reduce capacity, and you can always chuck another bag in the pannier if you need them/it. Also one big pannier gives more flexability for unusual loads/shopping on the way home etc.
Get one with a good quick release mechanism though (Rixen and Kaul klik-fix is good). Mine’s an Altura waterproof thing they don’t make any more (cheap ortileb copy basically).

Been going strong 5 years or so, as has my partner’s identical one.
