Does this happen to you?
I go through it often... this morning was a hard choice since I need to buy soy milk after work (hence take my commuter with baskets) but really wanted to take my road bike which has no rack or baskets.
My road bike won me over today.
I use rack bags. But, if I did have a nice roadie and wanted to get it out, I'd consider a backpack if used rarely.
Besides, day like today, I'm sweaty all over!

I have racks on ALL my bikes but face a similar dilemna. My City Bike has been fitted with a crate on the rear so it usually gets hauling duty but if I'mcommuting any distance the old Schwinn road steel frame sure makes the 'roids hurt less than the City's alum frame (as well as the upright position forcing more pressure on me butt). I dropped off at the food store over the weekend on my roadie and realized I had no bungees so had to improvise with my cable, but made it alright (loafs of bread always have a crease like that don't they?).
