I was thinking about purchasing some ortlieb paniers too. Some of the bike-packer lites (not the plastic roll down ones). I am surprised at all the waterproof bashing going on. Are these paniers that claim to be water resistant really not worth it?
I am currently riding on a Cdale f400 and am wondering if it will even be possible to attach a front rack on it for some low riding front paniers. I think this might be the decider between paniers or a trailer.
What are some of you guys' thoughts/pros n cons of using a BOB or going with the full out panier job?
