According to local stats, about 8% of all reported bicycle accidents with a stated reason are caused by clothing, accessories or cargo getting caught in the moving parts of the bicycle.
The amount of shopping lost due to spokes ripping a bag open is unknown.
Hanging bags off the bar can be ever so tempting, but needs to be done with due concern unless you want to join one of the more avoidable parts of the accident statistics.
