I am still trying to decide between a BOB or panniers for my cross country journey. I did some miles with a BOB for the first time today and found it to be quite easy to ride with. I'm curious what people who have toured with a BOB have experienced as far as mechanical or other problems. I don't want a debate about panniers v BOB, I just want to know what people have experienced for problems with a BOB, especially on long tours.
Thanks in advance.
Oh, and here is a picture of my bike with the BOB just for your pleasure.
