The pannier is as far back as it can go. Eh, to be fair to the bike, bag, and new rack, the bike's chain stay isn't really long and it's got no mounting holes, so I had to P-clamp it. Such is life.

Don't You Just Hate It When . . . .

You put on a new rack only to find out you now suffer from heel strike when you mount the pannier.

First Day Success!

Made it into the office! 5 miles one way, had some mechanical failure with the rear wheel, but made it otherwise safe and sound.

It was really fun. Can't wait to get home now.
