I started using a bicycle to commute to school and work everyday for the last 4 months but I realized that wearing a backpack wasn't super comfortable for riding.
So I invested in some functional and beautiful american hand-made panniers from Frost River. However, I am so scared to leave them locked up with my bike for fear they get stolen. The result is that I am not using the panniers anymore because taking them on and off is a hassle.
But I don't want to give up. And have decided to ask if anyone here can advise on how to secure my panniers so I can leave them locked with my bike without getting stolen.
Zip ties? But these can be cut. Sell them? And get some wald foldable baskets?
Open to suggestions! Thanks in advance
