Difference between front and rear panniers?
I purchased a nice pair of used Bach rear panniers for commuting and was thinking about getting something a little bigger for the back for touring and using the Bachs on the front. They mount with two hooks on the top and a springy hook on the bottom in a "Y" configuration.
So here's what I'm wondering since I can't find info on these panniers online...
....sometimes manufacturers say "rear only" or "front or rear" in their pannier descriptions. What is the difference between front and rear panniers (besides size, generally)? Is it fine to mount my Bachs and any smallish rear pannier on front rack? Thanks.
