not that kind...
i am trying to figure out what the best way to schlep gear commuting is. used my poacher today and my back and neck got good andd tweaked. i guess i'll get some of those ones that can go over the back tire? i hate to taint my ride with such gaperish accessories, but being able to ride 20-25 miles everyday would be schweet.
any info on gaper bags would be appreciated.

If you have a LOT of gear to schlep back and forth, then go with a daypack setup, otherwise consider a messenger bag.
Manhattan Bags makes a good one: http://www.manhattanportage.com/product_list.asp?code=1
So does Timbuk2:

Panniers. They rock. Deuter makes some nice ones.

I've gotten away without backpack or paniers. Did the the first year with a cheap back pack and no bike cloths so looked like a homeless person on bike.
If you have to drive once a week or have spouse who works close to your work you can do what I do and only carry a frame bag enough for tube , small pump, tire wrench , extra gloves and a jacket. Once a week I do a dirty/clean cloths run by driving or through wife. So never have to carry on bike work cloths. Means that I have a dozen or so extra pairs of socks and under wear that I won't have otherwise. As long as you have a place to store your stuff at work it works pretty well.
