I use a pannier to carry things to work, to avoid getting a sweaty back from a backpack. I've had my existing Tioga panniers for about seven years and in the last year one has started flopping round into the back wheel spokes after I go over a bump and bringing me to a rapid stop. It flops around in toward the rear wheel from behind the rearmost strut of the rack.
I know this is because the pannier structure is getting a bit floppy after many years and thousands of km, and I could solve it by buying new ones. However, being an ardent environmentalist that regards replacing as a last resort to only be applied when something is beyond mending, I would like to fix the problem with the existing pannier if possible.
Does anybody have any good ideas about how to stop the pannier flopping around into the wheel?
Thanks very much for any suggestions.
