Did a lot of search and came down to Ortlieb and the Topeak tourguide. Mixed reports on the topeak mount and apparently space is wasted with padding. My bar is 40 cem as measured from center of one hood to the other.
Is the Ortlieb really worth the extra money?
Wayne [touringstore.com] is putting together a set of racks and panniers for my wifes and my non touring road bikes for some light touring. If we like the concept of touring I guess the same stuff can be moved to regular touring bikes.
Again is ortlieb worth the extra money? The one advantage is that the new ones can be tilted back to increase the heel clearance.
Any other suggestions for handlebar bags?
