    Pannier with Scott bike

    Hi all. I've been using a backpack since I started commuting, which has worked just fine. Now that the cold morning weather has set in I'm running into a problem. I'm wearing a few upper layers and a jacket in the mornings, since it's been around 35F when I leave. However, when I come home it's been in the 60s or 70s. I have to cram all my clothes into my backpack, which makes for a heavy load on my back, more sweat, etc.

    So naturally I've been thinking about panniers. I have three questions:

    1 - Has anyone other there using panniers on a Scott CR1? I'm wondering about hitting my heels, etc.

    2 - If panniers will work with my bike, what are your suggestions? (brand, single/double, etc.)

    3 - Do most panniers come with a rack or do I need to get that separately?

    Thanks!

    Panniers come without a rack. For you the best solution would be the Tubus rack at the link above. I use one and love it. It's solid. Call Wayne at The Touring Store and ask him all your questions; he is extremely helpful and very knowledgeable on the subject of racks and panniers.

    He also has great prices on the products he sells.

    does the CR1 have any sort of place to attach a rack?
    At the Scott site, it looks like a Tri-racing bike. You might have to use a seat post rack
