I prefer a front rack / basket. I bike has to be able to work, as in possibly carrying stuff. I discovered that the basket / trays in those roto molded coolers makes for a great basket paired with a rack time front rack. Those trays / baskets are low profile being only 3.5 inches high and come in some smaller sizes and different shapes which is great in my eyes as I usually don't carry much but always carry at minimum a bagged bike lock. My fear on grocery bags or other plastic bags hanging on the bars is that one will split open and of course it will happen at the worst possible time. Yeti and Canyon coolers are 2 that have the baskets inside but there are many more brands out there.
