I've got a mountain bike which is my only form of transport and I've fitted a topeak pannier rack which seams fairly good/strong.
I use my bike to get to St John ambulance duties quite a bit which tends to mean a lot of bulky kit as well as say to day transport/shopping. I also try and go camping with the bike in the summer and tend to fill the panniers and then some
basically I need some large panniers that are very waterproof but for most times I don't need easy access (small must have items get carried in my hydration pack or in the first aid rucksac that goes on th top of the rack)
I was thinking of the Karrimor EH20 Global Waterproof Panniers as they look a lot easier to clean then other panniers I've used but after reading 4pages of threads fter searching for Panniers I didn't notice them being mentioned. I'm i the UK and was wondering if it's that the panniers just aren't sold much elsewhere or if it's becasue they aren't very good
Claud butler urban 400 2007 model...!best bike i have ever had,why? i replaced the bars with flats..the seat with something more comfy.!and spent a month setting it up so i have the perfect cycling position,tweaks here there and everywhere.!
I have had karrimor iberian rear panniers for years now......still going strong and waterproof..!They are a good brand.!
