I just bought some yesterday, front and back, orteliebs back roller, with Q2 locking system...
The things are AMAZING for fit and simplicity of use...
The front and back bags fitted nicely onto both front and back racks... no ground clearence problems ( i dont think )on the lowrider front racks either. So you could buy rear racks, and put them on the front and back as far as i know... a more experienced tourer might say otherwise.
I still ended up buying the smaller bags for the front anyway, due to the fact that i run of the opinion that "The more space you have, the more space you will fill".. so with smaller bags.. its impossible for me to carry more weight.. :-) Probably the same reason some tourers only carry rear panniers..
Remember this is all opinions from a complete newbie, but i research a lot!!!
