Now that I eventually have the Low rider Pannier frames fitted to the front forks on my Hybrid, my trailer is being used less & less
I have just got in from a 2 miles each way grocery run: 5 kgs of Potatoes, 2 kg Carrots, 2 Kg Sweet Potatoes, 1 Kg Parsnips, 1 Kg Leeks, 6 Kgs Plain flour, 1.7 kg Honey, 2 litres Milk, 2 litres Bleach, 1 litre Orange juice, 1 litre Red Grape juice, and various other smaller items. That's a little over 25 kgs spread between the two pannier bags, and is the largest and heaviest load that I have carried in them so far. Apart from the intial starting off, I did not experience any problems, in fact all of that weight concentrated around the centre of my bike's front wheel made cornering at speed safer: I had one dodgy moment on some wet and slippery leaves whilst negotiating the small roundabout at the bottom of the hill that I live on, and without the extra weight on the front of my bike, I would have probably ended up a bit of a bruised, bloody and embaressed mess in the gutter. All in all I am getting to like these low rider front panniers of mine a lot; roll on the spring and summer camping trips and short haul bike expeditions.
