Carrying things on your uni

How do you carry a small amout of stuff on your uni? I am thinking of my wallet,
keys, and maybe 3 juggling balls. I don’t want to bother with a backpack and I
don’t like fanny packs. Is there something I can mount under the seat that will
hold a few items?

How do you carry your house keys when you don’t have any pockets?

    I normally wear pants with pockets. I can't recall any problems
    with pants with deep pockets, other than chafing and that bulging,
    geeky look ;-)

    For performances I remember counting on the existance of at least one
    roadie or accompanying vehicle. Otherwise, I would use a small daypack.
    You could wear a moneybelt (a belt with an integral, hidden pouch), but
    that wouldn't hold the juggling balls. You could wear a belt with a
    standard backpacker's belt pouch attached, but since you don't like
    fanny packs, you might not like this solution, either.

    An option for keys is to put them on a chain around your neck; another
    option is a wrist chain; I do *not* recommend an ankle chain, for fear
    of unfornate interactions with your pedals or spokes. :-o

    Repost your last question on rec.nude for a more comprehensive
    response. :-)

I bought a small expanable pocket that attaches to the pole (velcro) and the
back of the seat (Elastic). It is designed to go under the seat of a normal
bike, however the elastic is normally used to attach wet weather riding gear.
Because of this the mini-pannier is best put upside down.

It doesn’t get in the way at all, no-matter what I’m doing. The only reason I
know it’s there is because of the sound of my keys rattling when I am jumping my
way up stairs.

Capacity: 3 juggling balls, keys, wallet, and a couple of muesli bars. But can
be expanded to hold more (Although then you start to notice the weight).

    May your tyre never go bald and your crank never bend.
