    Quick release paniers for Dahon Rack

    The eternal luggage problem! I was using a cheap pair of Front paniers on my rear rack. Too flimsy. (For any uk members - Halfords 25.00, don't waste your money.) I do think that small paniers will suit me, but before inversting in Ortliebs - does anyone know how quickly and easily I can take them off? I need to fold at least twice on my daily commute.

    You just lift them off by the handle, they release automatically.

    Yea, the webbing pulls the catch open..
    As my Bike Friday has a front rack, I used some short pieces of webbing,
    and by removing and re installing the mounting screws, piercing the strips of webbing,
    With those screws, I joined the 2 panniers together, for convenience.

    Two front rollers carry very well in one hand when you place the two handles together.

    They hook great onto supermarket trolleys too

    Folded bike in trolley, Front Rollers hooked on the trolley - that's another problem solved.

    I ordered the Ortliebs this morning. They are City Rollers, but fit the same way and are fine for what I need. My head said get a bright colour for the road, but I bought them in black, to avoid the worst of the stupid questions I'll get carrying them into work!

    Meyer Stores, here, have gone over to molded 'high impact' Plastics for the shopping trolles,
    the hooks dont hang over those edges.. Like the steel wire basket trolley.
