    Cardboard Panniers?

    It would be better if they were made of Coroplast™:

    Packtasche bike carrier is made from cardboard

    But I like the idea. Grocery stores handing out cardboard panniers instead of Bags? Go for it.

    Thanks for the reminder. But I must give clear warning, nobody had better take those signs until AFTER the Election, or it would be serious BAD, they might rule the Election invalid.

    Fortunately , this year I think I can make a deal with the man who puts the signs up, and get a stack or two of Coroplast™ from him, after he takes them down, or at least I'll have "official permission" to take them down... we'll see.

    Yeah, I thought the panniers were from Austria, but it said "students from Austria", so the fact that they are next door is understandable.

    I just rode 13 miles on my mountain bike, with 60 psi in the tires, it was cloudy and drizzling, but at least it wasn't hot. I got weighed at 265#lbs today, which means I have to try harder to lose weight.
    With the current set of Coroplast Panniers, have you seen them?

    Coroplast is the main structural element of Carradice bar bag and the stiffener in Super C panniers. It lasts forever and then you can just replace it after an election. Ideal if you live someplace where elections happen rarely.

    Define "better". More durable and stronger in coroplast. More easily recycled or composted in cardboard.

    Prioities must be chosen. Choose wisely.

    The Whisk Broom is handy, after the Bike goes over broken glass (which is common here) and the chunk of glass is going click,click,click with each revolution of the wheel, the Broom can dislodge the glass before it goes all the way through the tire.

    All in the spirit of the post I was quoting ... I was wondering if anyone would notice.
