    feet clipping panniers

    guys i have just got my new panniers and im wondering what can be done to stop my foot clipping the back on the pedal stroke.

    I think i have them as far back as they can go does it matter if they point down slightly

    i think the problem is i have size 12 feet

    Do the panniers have a heel cutout profile?
    The rack should generally be level but you may get some more clearance if you tilt it up a bit or raise it up. Some racks have a longer platform for more reaward placement of the panniers.
    Post a pic of your setup if you can.

    This why most touring bikes have slightly longer chainstays. Also, it looks like the bike could be a little small for you. How tall are you and what size is the bike?
