Depends on the weight and how secure it is. Your personal experience
does not follow for everybody.

Centre of gravity raised.


And?

Proper science does. Nugent science doesn't.


Nugent cares little for the laws of Momentum (until he has to stop
unexpectedly, of course)

You can't stop Nugent !

Whenever I carried shopping or other goods in a rucksack while cycling, I
found the biggest problem was the inevitable shifting of the load.

Not only because it changed the balance but also because restoring its
position meant I would need to wriggle or writhe in a way which reduced
control.

Of course a cyclist should stop to do this but sometimes it would have to
be every 25 metres making a journey effectively impossible.

Childish.

Your lack of ability to argue on point speaks volumes about you.

Tell us again how raising your centre of gravity doesn't affect your
stability of balance when cycling.

Would it be just the same if a wardrobe were fastened to a roof rack on
an SUV?

You know that. We all know it. But for some people, what they don't want
to know cannot possibly be true and must be resisted no matter what.

I achieved the "impossible" every day for 15 years then!

We all have an idea of how that ended up.

And didn't you (at least) once drive across half a continent with an
unroadworthy vehicle because you couldn't be bothered paying to have it
repaired?

Are you saying that for 15 years you stopped every 25 metres while cycling?

I never needed to as my luggage, such as it was, never shifted in position as it was stored securely. You incorrectly stated that there must be an "inevitable shifting of the load", which was not true in my case.

I very much doubt even your "Scorpio powers" could secure typical groceries
in a rucksack so securely to prevent movement such that soft foods are not
damaged.

What you may mean is for 15 years you got away with it despite a sometimes
shifting load.

That's a problem with the backpack, not about carrying a load on your back.

Not only because it changed the balance but also because restoring its
position meant I would need to wriggle or writhe in a way which reduced
control.
Of course a cyclist should stop to do this but sometimes it would

have to
be every 25 metres making a journey effectively impossible.


Use a better backpack.
