I have finally been allowed a locker! Have been commuting by bike for about 10 years and have just this year been told by male members of staff that they have a changing room with lockers and a wardrobe for hanging suits. Female members of staff have nothing! I complained and management have got very twitchy! As a first step, they have found some lockers and put them outside the ladies toilets. They are also talking about repurposing a small work room nearby as a female changing room! We'll see if this actually happens. (Out of a staff of 150ish, around 65% are female. I am the only woman who cycles)If you have lockers at work
Been there and done that, the the Ortlieb pannier I use with their back pack converter is the pannier I used with a rack for 8 years. The converter is designed well so I don't sweat, the agility of the bike and hand freedom/ ease at the other end outweighs sweat for me for an occasional once a week use but as you say each to their ownBetter a second of hassle than an hour of sweat IMO but each to their own.
If OP has a bike cage at work, like me, the bike needs handled in and out of the parking space. If there are many bikes in the cage, this can sometimes mean lifting the bike, because the panniers get stuck.What the flip is "lifting the bike into position"? Is it a cyclocross commute? Ride the bike, not carry it.
Sorry no, it was just a cheapy one from my little bike shop (one man band outfit) it didn't even have a label on when I bought it but John doesn't stock badly made stuff. There is a chance that he'd had it in stock for years though as the shop is very old fashioned.
That's what I'm looking for - old-fashioned I don't like the look of lots of the modern ones.Sorry no, it was just a cheapy one from my little bike shop (one man band outfit) it didn't even have a label on when I bought it but John doesn't stock badly made stuff.
