    Looks like they may be a reasonable route to go. Be nice to hear some reports on how well they work.

    I have not tried them yet, but I am very interested in them. I hope someone writes, because I love my cyclerack.

    They work. I think the the metal needs to be a bit thicker. I bent one on back in October. Here is a link to what i did with my panniers. https://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...__1#entry51487 If your going to be doing any off-roading with much weight on them i would suggest making som kind of brace just to keep them from swaying. Other than that they have been good so far.

    Resurrecting an old thread but I really like mine. I have a double Kolpin fuel can setup on one and a Pelican case on the other. I've been using it for commuting the last couple weeks and having a ball with it.

    I have them and find they work fine. It's a little wide. I'd suggest a solid crossmember setup instead of the strap.

    I really like the fact that they are locked on when I have my top case in place.

    i have a cycle rack and it is an awesome rack, and they have great customer service. however i also can vouch for tinman tim's work. i bought his panniers, i put 2000 miles on his and they worked great. he also was a big help and went above and beyond to get me set up.

    Old resurrection, but has anyone actually used the Cyclerack panniers they sell?

    These guys?



    They're expensive, but I'm considering. They're other stuff is good, and I don't mind paying if they're going to last forever.

    you said it. They're expensive, and in my opinion small. You're $, spend it how you want

    According to their website, they have a lifetime warranty which is pretty good for a set of panniers. I've holed a few cheapies over the years, and now want quality soft bags.

    Compared to soft bags from Andy Strapz, Giant Loop etc they're actually cheap.
