Re: WANTED: PANNIERS

They're all pairs but I recall 3 are 'joined pairs' and the other 2 pairs can be used separately ... if that makes sense. Yep, capacity would be roughly 20l per side or maybe a touch more. They're all Cordura type material so offer a degree of waterproofness but none are fully waterproof. I'd pack ...

Re: WANTED: PANNIERS

My son has an Alpkit 13l bar bag and a 2.7l Ortlieb saddle pack on his bike. Those work well and are not that pricey either. They are a lot lighter than racks and panniers. The Ortlieb pack works well on a younger person's bike as it has a bracket fitting under the saddle which holds it still and h...

Re: WANTED: PANNIERS

This may be a daft (and possibly insulting) question but...
you do have racks on the bikes?
No...sorry - I have nothing - am starting from scratch - are fittings universal?
Thanks for pointing out as well though! I am tired!!

Stu you are a star!! We are a family of 5 so up to 5 "pairs" would be amazing depending on how many you have!? Are they individuals or pairs etc..Just let me know what remuneration / details you need!? Would they fit on adult and child bikes alike? m
