    Hmm 6cm taller, 2 3/8" ... 3 below the hinge, 3 above,
    +3/-3 so bar tip still wont be
    hitting the deck, folded..

    Mini O bag .. I hope for a Maxy O bag.. Wet weather touring and shopping haul all .

    but there are Kludges on the Web showing
    how to alter the front Bag support to hang a Ortlieb rear pannier on it.
    One can probably do that for less than the $300 for the O job.

    Link? I just bought a mini velo w two threaded atachment bolts in the frame. Made a rack to fit a normal size rear pannier to it. I like to be able to use all the bags on all the bikes depending on what I need that day. A bit like the xtor swift rack discussed here some time back.

    modifying by re doing pop-rivets in the bag support frame ,
    and sawing off a few things..
