There's a better way to do this right? It's connected at 4 points, but how should I actually be attaching my backpack?
That Batavus Champion looks incredibly familiar.
Do you live in the Netherlands?
If so I think that was mine 2 owners before you. I sold it to a guy who sells bikes. He probably sold it to you then.
No sorry, I live in the US. I wish I lived in the Netherlands, or at least somewhere with a little bit better attitude towards bikes.
Here's another shot from when i had saddlebags on it
And more on how I managed to attach the backpack
Got one of these yesterday, so much better than strapping a bag down with bungies.
I fixed it up a bit, now its got two small bungees over the top going down to the rack with one threaded through the clips on the sides, and then the two bottom straps clipped together around the seat. Feels a lot more secure and doesn't take as long to pull off so that's good.
I've used one of those before and I liked them, but my objective here is just to transport my backpack everyday without having it over my shoulders because of how sweaty it makes my back. I own a set of saddlebags but I can't fit the backpack in them, and I need the bag throughout the day away from my bike. Hence the sorta ghetto solution, I'm trying to do something other than zip-tie a milk crate down and dump my bag in that.
