    AFAIK, CC doesn't allow users to upload files as post attachments to their server with the "paper clip" button.

    I think that is the jist of why just the link shows up; it's based on what tags/attachment process is used. Database insertion (paper clip) or external reference using IMG tags (mountain button).

    I could totally stand corrected, of course!

    I just got this under-chair bag, and quit using my backpack. I don't know yet whether or not I like the new bag. I wanted to try it because I don't get into my backpack too often, and the stuff I tend to carry there is heavy, so the backpack was really affecting my balance going up steep hills with my MagicWheels (I also use a small bag up front and a catchall). I haven't tested it up a hill yet, though.

    My chair's cross bar prevents me from hanging the bag as high as I'd like. It won't fit above the bar under my solid seat pan. I'm considering getting a no-drop crossbar (per Stephen212) on my next chair. (I absolutely love having access to all the ideas available on CCC.)

    If you have four pictures to post and you want a picture to show up instead of a link, you will have to post one picture per message. You will have four messages or posts, one right after the other.

    All the best,

    You can Go Advanced, Manage Attachments,

    Attachment 50304

    Browse and Upload to up to four (I think) pics:

    Attachment 50305

    Then insert the pics into the message:

    Panthera just came out with a very nice backpack:


    A little pricey at $80 but it's well designed and made.
    I think you can purchase it from Triumphmobility.com

    I am using a Camelbak, those that you can buy from bicycle shops. I bought it without the bladder as I do not carry drinks inside the bag (which would also make it heavy).

    I like the Camelbak as it has many zippers & compartments. Plus its meant for outdoor use, hence it is extremely well made, robust and light. Its definitely more expensive, but I also feel bags made specifically for wheelchair users are way overpriced considering the cheap material used and its workmanship.

    With Camelbak, its made for cyclist and they are well made, weatherproof, light, uses good materials & very well engineered.

Went with the Sportaid bag for more than ten years, but it was so cheaply made the ziipers always failed even before the frabric shredded. The Quickie is rugged with great zippers but I need a more capacity.

    No WalMart's near me. I can hit up REI but I really like having something made for a chair. I don't have those long heavy padded straps digging into my back. Thanks for the tip though, I will check out the Camelback. They do make great stuff. I guess REI would have them and it's always fun going there :-)
    I have the sport aid front bag with Caths, tools, wallet phone etc... Very handy, removable from chair to chair and great if you want to go out without a real bag.
    At the back, I hang an old fashioned school bag or messenger bag on the hook of my freewheel...
    For my water bottle I attached a cf bike bottle on the front right tube... Water always in my sight, reminds me to keep hydrated (it is 42deg C where I am...)

    I use the same hook to hang my shopping bags. Dead handy.

    That's the bag I've been dying to get. Its available on eBay for $53 and free shipping. I definitely want it before I go back to school (whenever I get that to happen) because I think it's the best option for text books or a laptop.
