Some new panniers from Carradice

a couple of years ago I bought a Carradry saddlebag from Carradice and really liked it so I decided for my birthday I would buy a set of panniers as well. This was to reduce the clutter of having bits bungee'd on the bike but I did not want big bags so I ordered a set of Carradry front panniers at 10L each. https://www.carradice.co.uk/bags/pan...-panniers-pair

They arrived a while ago and today I got around to setting things up.

First I needed a new rack and settled on an Axon Streamliner Road DLX https://www.axiomgear.com/products/r...iner-road-dlx/. I took my bike in to my favorite shop and made sure it fit and did not need the Disc version even though I have disc brakes.

Then I bolted the panniers together. They have a locking mechanism installed but you have to mount and screw in the rail hangers and right sized inserts for the rack (two sizes).
This is how they came.

And then on the bike.

I am glad those worked out for you. A few years ago I bought the rear Carradry bags for a trip that logistics got in the way and the trip did not happen, so I never used them. But, I found that the lower hook design on the Carradry bags would not work on my Tubus Logo rack. Thus I needed a different rack if I wanted to used them.

But the top rail for rack mounting appeared to be more than adequate and easily adjustable.

I bought the rear bags because I needed more volume than my Ortlieb Backrollers hold and the rear Carradry were about 20 to 25 percent larger. For my trip this year I am trying to figure out if I want to try the Carradry bags on a different rack or use my Ortliebs. Decisions.
