    Mechanicalron,
    Nice setup, would love to see a closeup on those panniers. What are the made from? Also the chain slap guard, is that DIY as well (a piece of leather glued to the stay)?
    Cheers!

    Hey thank you!
    I make them out of canvas and leather. A one time treatment of bezwax and neetsfoot oil wil make them weather proof for years and years! They can breathe so your damp stuf wont get smelly. The chain stay has leather over it that I sewed onto it. Need a special bag?

    Hi,
    Can you post some more photos of the bike and the panniers. If you have photos of the making process of the panniers, it will be great.

    Thanks,

    I use copper rivets, brass bukles, saddle leather and cotton canvas. This will last you a life time!

    Next, trash pick some good 100 year old Singers, ha ha!

    And whala!

    I use my old tires for fenders! ron.

    Those bags are beautiful. Would it be too much to ask to have you post the pattern you used?

    I had what I needed in my head and made a scetch on paper that looked like a 4 year old did. I just maped it out on the canvas with chalk and cut. On my 90 year old Singer I put a grid with masking tape 3/4" from the needle. Start sewing 3/4" from the top and 3/4" in from the side and stop sewing 3/4" short at the bottom. So if you want a 12" box cut your fabrick 13 and 1/2" and match the edge up with your grid tape. I should make a pattern and not just a sceth if I am going to make bags. The ones here are for my front racks and get HUGE and can expand big time. The three straps on the top are for my sleeping gear and not to mount. the bags mount standard to the rack. Sit on your bike and see what you can get away with at your heel/ feet and start there, ron.

    09 Randonee

    This morning was the maiden voyage for my new Randonee. I went 32 miles and enjoyed the ride - it felt good. I'm waiting for Tubus racks for front and rear (the Cosmo and the Nova) and I'll put my panniers on it and send an updated picture. I've put on SKS fenders, and I'll be swapping out the bottle cages. I'm looking to take it to Ireland in May for a 2 week tour.

    I don't have a definite route but I'm thinking my starting/stopping point will be Athlone as I have cousins there. From there, I'm thinking of heading up toward Achill Island, down to Galway, Berra peninsula, Cork, then back to Athlone. I've got two weeks, and was thinking of going the hostel route vs camping. Any and all suggestions would be most welcome. thanks!

    Alright well I just finished my first tour (3 days from Boston to New York during my spring break), so here's my touring rig as it stands now, though it is a work in progress.


    The bike: A pre-1993(has Suntour components) Bianchi Osprey Lugged Chromoly Framed MTB found last year on CL.

    Swapped out: saddle for Specialized Avatar, Tires for Schwalbe Marathon Plus 26x1.75, Brake Pads for Kool Stop Dual Compound black/salmon pads, bars for nashbar trekking.

    Added: Ergon grips, duct taped Magellan Meridian GPS, 3 water bottle cages, rear rack, 2 wald steel rear grocery baskets (that's right, I'm touring with these 7lb babies, though diy trashcan panniers are probably next), autozone reflective tape, planet bike hardcore fenders, blinkies.

    Last three days on a bike trip to Oregon from Northern Cal. Got rid of my back pack and tied all the gear I wanted to the rear rack with rope and bungee cords found along the way.
