How do you carry a frame while riding?

possible to get it securely on your back but high up? i've ridden with a few bags before, one being a badminton bag and due to it's length it's quite hard getting on and off the saddle and trying not to get the bag caught on the saddle.

Just strap it to your back - I have carried one like that - it was shorter (and lighter)than my golf clubs which I often carry on my bike

Jesus, anyone would think that this is some totally insane thing to do based on the above suggestions. Just wear the main triangle like a messenger/shoulder bag. It's a quick errand run not some extended countryside blast FFS - and trust me, when you've got a load of metal sticking out from your person, cars give you plenty of room.

I've carried one like that - a bit uncomfy but if it's not for very far - and you can ride one handed for periods when it's safe and bear the weight of the frame with the free hand.

I'd second that. I've done it with two frames - you have to go with a bit of extra care, and keep fiddling about with the frame position so it doesn't get in the way, but it isn't difficult. And you're right about the extra room...
