Oxford 1st time soft panniers

Post by salsarider79 » Tue Mar 13, 2012 12:35 pm

A bit of a pain to put on the first time, getting the straps the right length and stuff, and can be a bit of a pain when fitting or removing fully loaded, oh and the rain covers need bungee's to keep them on. Mine are one short before I found that out.

Other than that - fantastic. Loads of bungee points to strap things too, I use two of the small bungee's that come with them in an X shape over the seat to keep them in up. They expand out and are massive. I've carried a shopping trolley full of food on my bike using these.

As soft luggage goes, very good but not perfect.

I've got these too and they are very good for the price. I paid £35 for mine. My main gripe is that the waterproof covers let spray in from behind but some inner roll bags can solve that.

Never found that, TBH, but the waterproof covers are rubbish, I think we can agree on that.... :wink:
