I don't like cycling with a rucksack and there are so many journeys where I end up trudging around with two panniers for ages and it gets annoying. I just wondered if anyone's tried this and noticed the bike feeling less stable, to a point where it's annoying. Also does it make much difference if it's at the back or front? I guess the front is safer in terms of people grabbing your stuff.
I may look at the Ortlieb Vario as an alternative - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ortlieb-Vario- ... B00SR7KVNE
That's a very expensive alternative
