Ortlieb Backroller Classic Panniers for $100

I've been wanting to get a pair of these for a long time but were just too pricey. I even bid on a USED pair a few days ago on eBay that ended up selling for $125, so I know this is a good deal.

Probikekit.com with 10% off coupon TDFUSA (from the coupon forum here)

free shipping, $100 bucks

I haven't received them yet but I wanted to share the deal.

The Basil D'Azur Double Bag has 40L carrying capacity and is priced at $94.00.

The Ortlieb Backroller Classic Panniers have 24L carrying capacity and are priced at $100.00.

So you get more for less with Basil.

I was also consider the Basil options. However, just to correct you, the Ortlieb's are 40L per pair of bags, not 24L.

Also, I just saw that the Ortlieb's are on sale at REI too, in case anyone prefers buying from them.

Thanks for the heads up on the sale for REI I needed the front roller classic and it at a great price.
