Eddie,Whilst I was using the NEO Xtrem for commuting duties I fitted a Topeak Super Tourist DX rack in conjunction with a Topeak MTX Trunk Bag EXP with Side Panniers.
It didn't really add any significant weight to the bike, was quick to install and remove, worked with the rear disc set up, and the slide on/off bag with side panniers was brilliant.
I have just been out and weighed the rack, and according to my scales, it weighs 875 grams (1.92Ibs)

I have been trying to find the right size of bag for my E3 Dash. Amazon is great but it doesn't show dimensions well.
I orderd this one first

It looked nice on Amazon and I thought it would do it for commuting. There no way to get an iPad Air in any place.

That is a good questions. I got my bike last week and the bags on Monday. Did have real life experience yet. I guess it depends on where you park and how safe the area is and what is in the bag. I will try to use my cable look for those moments if there is nothing of value in.I have a question: If/when you stop to run an errand, say in a store as an example, do you then take off all the bags from your bike and take them with you into the store? I realize for grocery panniers that's the way to do it, but what about trunk bags and other panniers? Remove them each time you have to make a stop that involves you being away from your bike for more than 5 min?
