Bike Warehouse panniers

I've had these in a storage space for several years. They're not in great condition, but definitely usable. Are they worth selling?

Are all the zippers, clips, and springs working? What is the worst of them?

I'd expect you to get $25 to $40 out of them if fully functional.

if they don't sell, you can donate them to a co-op

OK, so near the break even point for shipping, given the rigid internal frame. That's kind of what I was expecting.

I thought about giving them to a local co-op, but I kind of hate the thought that they be bought by a person just looking for cheap bags who would literally be better off bolting a milk crate to a rack. I'd much rather see them end up with someone who actually wanted vintage panniers. Maybe that's silly, but when I bought them I was just looking for cheap bags and that quickly ended up with them making a four year trip to my attic after I bought something that better matched my needs.

I think all the zippers and such work. There's a small hole in one of them where a reflector used to be. The other one still has the reflector.

I'll post them in the C&V for trade thread and see if anyone is interested.

Those are Bike Warehouse branded Cannondale Overland panniers. If you're looking to sell them, I'd unscrew them from the frame and toss them in the washer, so they don't look so grungy.

Cross-list them in the touring forum sales thread.
