New Panniers!

As mentioned in a previous post, I designed some custom laser cut & formed pannier brackets for my PacRack Pannier rack.

The bike came with some side loading pelican cases that had less than secure mounting. I knew I wanted top loaders & didnt want the same hokey mounting system.

The laser cut parts came in on Friday was able to get my new pelican 1440 top loaders all mounted up this weekend!

The adapter plates are 10gaugue 304 stainless & require no paint or finishing & I used all stainless hardware. They aren't quick release per-se. Rather, they are secured internally by a thumb knob. Remove the knob & they can be lifted off cleanly and easily. These cases are giant, and will be great for adventuring. I also got a set of 1400 top loader cases too, smaller & better for around town.

Trial 500mile run this coming weekend... Wew!

Let me know what you guys think!
