mentioned that it could be used with small panniers. I suppose small means something between 12 and 15 liters on each side. I've looked all over and can't find anything small except for some 12-liter shoulder bags with rack hooks, which is not really what I have in mind: Like these http://www.cb-asahi.co.jp/item/05/00...174600005.html.
I would like real panniers, but am at a loss. Should I give up the search and make them myself, say from small back/ruck sacks? If any readers of this post know of where I might find small panniers, please give me a name or a brand. Other suggestions also welcome.
Carradice CarraDry front panniers come at a listed volume of 10 litres each (they're sold in pairs). That's about the smallest I've come across. Their other front panniers are about 28-30 litres per pair, so they might fit the bill too.
To err is human. To moo is bovine.
Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
Lone Peak P099's look like they'd fit that rack perfectly. They're about an inch wider than the rack but the hooks are an inch or two in from the sides. If you like them you can call Wayne at the touringstore, he ought to be able to let you know for sure about the fit. I bought a Tubus rack and a pair of P150s from him, he helped me with the fit over my disc brakes and my rack/bag compatability. Wayne's great.
