Homemade panniers

2004-05-13 21:54:59.278396+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

The suspended seatpost arrrived yesterday, we didn't go biking because Charlene was on call, and I've no idea if we're going to make it out today, but since we cleared 20 miles we're starting to think about potential overnights in west Marin. And it'd be cool to be able to do shopping with the tandem. That means we need some cargo capacity.


A trailer might happen, but that's extra rolling resistance, and I'll need some weight on the bike anyway because I need to do some starting and stopping drills that are better done without the stoker on the bike (but with equivalent weight), so somewhere in these links is a good place to start.

look at trail horse back country packing for ideas about panniers. i've seen some really nice nylon panniers in the "trail horse" magazine. there are a couple of cowboys with websites that sell/make them. you might be able to find some good ideas.

looking forward to seeing some tandem pictures :)

You might want to check out the Xtracycle for some ideas.
