I'm living off campus this year and only using a bike for transport to save money. A minor oversight was getting art materials to campus each day. After purchasing my drawing tablet, I nearly killed myself taking it back to my apartment. I set it across the handlebars, and tried my best to still operate the brakes and pedal normally. I don't have a big enough bag to carry the thing, and I couldn't find one at the store for anything that resembled a decent price. However, through a combination of duck tape and a large plastic trash bag, I 'built' my own backpack that will work beautifully. This scores one more point for the awesomeness of duck tape!!
