Panniers for Dahon Arclite rack on Speed D7?
I know the Arclite is a tiny rack, but I'm OK with that.
I'm hoping to find some panniers to fit.
Can you advise?
I tried various paniers on my vitesse and heelstrike appeared to be an issue- ended up getting this trunk bag instead http://www.nashbar.com/bikes//Produc...2_167702_-1___
how did you like this trunk bag ? is it big ? do you have pics installed on your dahon ?

Depends also on foot size.

Trunkbags are better for the Arclite. Most panniers, even smaller front ones, will result in heel strike. I use the MTX TrunkBag DXP.
I've mounted the Ortlieb Shuttle Bike on an ArcLite rack on a Helios. Large capacity and mounted as far back as possible there's no problem with heel strike -- but it's not great for handling. Next time would go for front-mounted panniers.

If you don't mind spending a bit more $$$, the Lone Peak rack pack is quite an excellent bag. http://thetouringstore.com/LONE%20PE.../RP700%20RACK%
I use mine on my Dahon Curve as well as on my touring rig, and love it. No heelstrike with 16" wheels!
Picture is attached- there's a reflective strip on the sides and back and it allows easy attaching of a planet bike superflash. Also comes with a bright yellow rain cover, a number of pockets, and a carrying strap. Nashbar generally has coupons or other good deals on this bag.
