Pannier Bike Bag
- Product Review (submitted on August 26, 2011):
I ordered these panniers to use for around town and for bike camping, but unfortunately I decided to return them. The set I received were smaller than the dimensions listed in the description so that the capacity of each side was 20-23% smaller than the 1638 cubic inches listed. There is no rigid backing inside or out so that unless each side is stuffed, the lower corners on the inside will turn in and brush against the spokes. And if not stuffed, straps may catch in spokes unless secured. Also, attaching the lower part of the bag to my bike rack (a Topeak) was awkward and there were no directions included as to how to do it.
I was disappointed because I really like the overall design, sturdiness and look of these panniers, but for the cost they just aren't practical - will watch to see if there are any design improvements.
