The Panniers Are Here!
I just set them on the rack to get an idea how they will look on the Clubman. In opinion, they look cracking good! (Click pictures for embiggening.)
They are quite voluminous. I should have put the handlebar bag on, as well, to see how it visually balances the bike, fore and aft. Maybe I'll do that, tomorrow.
I am ultra-impressed with the quality of construction, and the heavy duty materials these bags are made of. I can see them lasting through decades of constant use. Weight-weenies should steer clear of them, though.
I will definitely be sourcing up some rims, this weekend, so that I can then size the spokes. I am very anxious, now, to get this bike on the road. Then, I will don my woolen knickers and sweater, pull up my knee socks and Bob's your uncle! British-style touring at it's finest.
