I've got an Novara Commuter pannier. It's fairly square, all though the side pouches dont go down to the bottom.
I've got the hooks set so the bag is as far back on the rack as it can be. I tried tipping the rack back a little more but since the corner of the bag basically sit right over the mounting bolt of the rack it doesn't really move it back at all. Basically my options are either a longer rack or a rack that sits farther back. I guess a rack that sits higher might also help but I don't really want to raise the bag up higher if I don't have to.
It would be nice if rack companies would include dimensionns so one would know how far back the rack extends from the center line of the wheel.
