Does anyone want to share a pair of waterproof panniers?

    I need a waterproof pannier. But I don't want two.

    The DHB ones are pretty good, but come in a pair for around £60.

    I only need one. It's a long shot, but if there's anyone else out there also in need of a single, waterproof pannier for £30, let me know.

    hmmm... I might give you a tenner for one.
    But wouldn't having only one unbalance your bike a bit - or have you already got one?

    I'll sell you one for £50 Bonj. For anyone else it would be half what it cost me for the pair.

    Using a single pannier does not noticeably unbalance a bike.

    no chance! then you'd actually be making a profit, what with your £20 wiggle discount voucher. Cheeky sod.

    The voucher has gone on the items I ordered last week. The panniers come later.

    Slightly OT....

    Altura do single panniers.

    The Fusion Dryline and Urban ranges are certainly availably singly in a 20 litre size.

    I've seen those. Thanks.

    I may go for that. But I've overdone it on the bike spending over the last few weeks and need some of my buys to look a bit less new before I get anything else.

    "Oh no, love. I've had that for ages" doesn't really work when the tags are still on.

    Yes, thanks. I wanted waterproof though. I can't be done with faffing around with raincovers.

    Have you seen the DHB panniers? I bought some and they went straight back, IMO poorly designed and made imitations of the Ortlieb/Vaude type. I’d rather spend a little more for the real thing. They’re also pretty big, 20L each, if you need to carry that much stuff I think you’d be better off with a pair of 25L front panniers, unless you need to carry a large item. Something like the Vaudes
