Bike Panniers

When a bike rider does not like to carry a back pack while they are cycling, the next best alternative is to attach bike panniers. A bike pannier will take all of the weight off of the cyclist’s body because it can be clipped onto the racks on the bike. However, before you can take advantage of these and other benefits, the racks will have to be installed.

Installing a rack for the bike panniers

Installing a rack on the bike does not have to be a difficult task, since the rear post racks are normally attached to the seat post. Therefore, once the seat posts are identified on the bike, then you can use a clamp to hold various items in place. As a general rule, these types of racks are often used for small commutes and they have been designed to carry a minimum amount of weight or items.

If you want to carry items in more than one place on your bike, you can use both the front and rear racks. These are racks which have been attached over the front and rear wheels of the bike (places where the pannier bags can hang from). However, prior to installing the pannier racks, you should make sure that you have the best racks for the bike that you are riding. One of the best ways to find the right pannier racks is to carry out some research online and shop around to find the best ones. MyCycleShop is ideal for this as we have a great selection of racks and bags from trusted cycling retailers. Find product reviews and if you’re still not sure, you can always speak to the retailer direct to get their advice. Another tip that should be considered prior to installing these racks is how often you need to use them because it takes some time to install and remove the racks. For instance, in some cases, you may want to use them for infrequent and small commutes or they may be needed for long rides during the weekend.

Purchasing a Bike Pannier

 

When you purchase a bike pannier, you may find that one bag can be sufficient for your needs in order to get to your place of work and back home for instance. In these cases, look for bags that have been designed with side pockets and multiple compartments. All of these compartments will allow you to separate different items so you can find items and paperwork very easily. Waterproof panniers are also preferred to non-waterproof versions because they are bound to pick up water and moisture from the road whilst travelling. Although riding a bike does have its limitations when it comes to the practicalities of carrying extra items and belongings, panniers and racks are a great way to make the most of your commuting or touring.
