Replace a single Ortlieb Pannier

Hi folks, I have a single Ortlieb Back-Roller City after losing one during a ride. Is there a way to get just a single replacement?

They sell a shopper version as a single. It would not match what you have.
https://www.ortlieb.com/en_us/bike-shopper

If it was me, I would consider selling the single to a commuter that only wants one, then buy a pair.

Sometimes Sierra Trading Post has had good prices but limited selection. I just checked, none at this time.

Google "single pannier" or even "ortlieb back roller city single" and pick the shopping option. There are some options that would mix and match. There is also some Backroller singles listed, maybe not city, but probably pretty close. Also no real harm in mixing models.

If you really must have an exactly matching set. Buy a new set and sell the odd single. Some of the available singles are probably a fairly close match though. Certainly close enough that it wouldn't bother me.

Fortunately with Ortliebs, there is not a designated right and left.

Huh hard to tell if the item below is a single pannier or a pair. Since he state "opened retail packaging," and since the price would be quite high for one pannier, I would think the price is for a pair but I would ask before bidding.

I would suspect that with some patience the OP will be able to find a single matching pannier. Either that or just purchase a another pair and have a spare!

I'd be totally upset if I lost an Ortlieb on a ride! Stolen or fell off, either way I'd be upset with myself.
