New Panniers & Quick Fit/Release Racks now Painted & Measured
« on: February 13, 2017, 01:52:01 PM »
Ok heres a couple of pics of the finished job have to say for a habitual pannier hater I'm quite happy and I have enough paint left to paint the front mudguard so thats next weeks job.
Someone asked for measurements so here they are
Front bars to outside hand guards = 40 inches
Boxes outside to outside                = 36 inches
So 7 inches overall narrower

Blimey 3 photos 3 posts as each post will only accept 1 pic size

A width of 36 inches is very good indeed! I wonder how that compares to the OEM panniers?
