GT Zum S2 and Panniers?

I'm just wondering if there are any options for panniers or even at minimal a rear rack for this bike? If so, any links or info on ideas would be appreciated.

I need something as I have a week off work soon and plan to do a little tour around parts of Scotland (my backdoor) and obviously would like to take camping gear and clothes etc...

Please don't tell me I'm all out of luck

I had to look up your bike, was not familiar with the Brand name, in the specs it says
fitted for standard rack mounting. So just about anything should work. I have this Topeak
version of Trunk Bag with Panniers, would be great for short touring trips. It is the MTX DXP largest size they make, not water proof though, but a cover is available.
I really like mine.

Well it has the top mounts but doesn't appear to have the lower mount, funny. It does have larger diameter holes (probably 1/4") near enough where the lower mounts should be so I guess I could make up a spacer or something and get a rack to fit without (hopefully) too much bother. Was just asking just in case anyone had tried on the Zum before. I do like the Topeak set you have there, unfortunately the store didn't have any in stock and everything else looked too small.

I see your point, probably just have to use your own bolts or something, just make sure
they will not rust...and like you said, maybe someone with the same issue will chime in...
