I'd already noticed that. However, it doesn't make me want to run out and buy a bike with saddle bags, etc.

Standard grocery list:

  • 1 bag milk
  • 1-2 loaves bread
  • apples
  • grapes
  • ground beef, maybe chicken if on sale
  • cereal
  • eggs
  • lettuce
  • vegetables (carrors, onion, etc)

I can't think of putting that kind of stuff into a basket or saddle bag. It'd be heavy, throw off the balance of the bike or get crushed in transit.

As has been said, I'll keep my biking to trails and less-used roads than main arteries in our fair City.

EDIT: not to mention that most bikes do not come with those accessories, thus adding an additional cost.
