Here's a picture of my 'fully-loaded' bike on the way back from a trip to Yosemite last year. Everything fits inside the panniers so loading/unloading the bike is very quick and convenient.
Thanks for the clarification. Those panniers look like they really maximize heel clearance and would be great on a road bike with short chain stays. BTW, I have fond memories or the newsprint Bike Warehouse catalogs.
