    Panniers on an ElecTrec

    Any one know of a pannier that will fit on the left side of an ElecTrec (over the motor?) I was originally looking at an Ortlieb, but the shortest one they make is 11 inches, and there is 8 1/2" (at best) between the top of the rack and the top of the motor on that side.

    I can put anything on the other side, but I'd rather not ride lopsided. I know about the rack bags with the fold out panniers, but they don't look useful for my purposes.

    I suppose I could build something that would extend the rack out sideways to clear the motor, but then I'd have to do it on the other side as well for balance, which would make things really wide. Then the bike wouldn't fit in my bike locker anymore.

    That bad huh? Nobody's got a clue? Maybe I'll cross post in one of the gear forums.

    A taller rack? You can get some with telescoping legs or multiple eyelets for different heights. That could buy you a few inches.

    Knog makes a one-piece style set of panniers called the Valore which doesn't come down far from the rack at all, but they haven't got a lot of storage room as a consequence.
