Road CC

Topeak bill this as being "perfect for commuting, school and errands" but in reality it's better suited to day rides.

The Topeak is one in a range of quick fit trunk bags, designed for commuting, errands and touring, though you'd have be pretty small to fit everything into its 7ltr capacity - I couldn't even fit a shoe in there!
