How do you like that Arkel Briefcase? [snip]

How do you like the briefcase fit?

On my Airborne I have to move the briefcase as far back as I can get it on my Topeak rack, for heel clearance, but then there's plenty. The Airborne has 43.5cm chainstays, I run 170mm cranks with size 44 shoes.

I'd suggest making a template.

Also, the briefcase extends above the top of the rack. This can be an issue with some rack trunks that are wider than the rack.

The only other issue is weight. It's not just heavy for a pannier, it's heavy for a briefcase.

But it's very well-made and very well laid out.
