Arkel Seatpacker 15
In the winter months riding a heavy bike with front and rear racks isn’t such a bad idea. I don’t particularly like front racks because on long rides I like the option of riding no-handed, and heavy front racks tend to make that impossible. So in the summer months it might be nice to use a cyclocross bike or road bike with an Arkel Seatpacker 15 (or 9)? I too ride a small frame. Not sure I’d recommend for rides less than 400K, but for the longer brevets this could be quite a nifty thing to have.
