The benefits of cycling for transport also brings the problem of working out how to carry groceries, laptops and the rest of your stuff. This smart bag from Freitag could be the solution.
The new Freitag F60 Joan — named, if you must know, for the Mad Men character — is a two-for-one bag that'll make women wonder why they ever bothered with saddlebags or over-the-shoulder handbags. When you're on two feet, the bag looks like any other large purse, except it has the company's trademark vinyl sheen made from upcycled materials. When it's time to hop on your bike, the bag has two straps on the back so you can firmly attach it to your handlebars and ride away. The F60 Joan also expands and contracts to fit the needs of your load, and you can even strap items to the exterior. Isn't it wonderful when everything's snugly in its place? The F60 Joan costs $US210. [Freitag via Core77]
