Hello. I was looking for some advice on panniers.
I've been commuting a short distance (20-25 mins) at an easy pace for years. I used a backpack to carry workclothes and laptop, and could get to work without sweating.
Now the route starts off with a long hill, and I almost always end up with a sweat on my back under the pack, unless I go very slow or dress so lightly it's uncomfortable. Soooo...thinking panniers may help.
Anyhow, not to drone on too much, but any panniers that will fit an old steel road bike, and would have about 30-40L of space? The bike has some small eyelets that presently have fenders that will have to stay, as I live in the PNW...and it sometimes rains here. So I guess they should be waterproof to protect the computer, too.
Thanks a lot.
Edit to add: did a search, but couldn't narrow it down to less than 500 threads, and I gotta get to bed!
