- Nov 14, 2008I've fallen on my bike, skinned knees and elbows, broken the occasional rib: and my laptop (in a backpack, not in my pannier) (in a padded sleeve) has always done well.
And when I've fallen, it's because I was stoopid.
To avoid falling, don't be stoopid.

Okay, I have a question on this: how does one approach carrying their
laptop in their bike pack?
I mean, the possibility of taking a tumble and trashing 700-800
dollars of equipment took me years to build up to worries me.
Helmets protect, skinned knees and elbows are bandagable and will
heal........ ......... but how does one reasonably take care of the lap
top when biking?
