Save yourselves while you can!

Leave me behind, there's no hope for me now!

Run! Run like the wind!

The moral of the story is, "buy cheap, pay twice".

Why? I bought a set of pannier bags for my town bike on EBay. They cost me £8! "Fantastic!", thought I, "what a bargain!"

I tried to use them yesterday.

They are sh1t. ;)

Thanks for that, the least you could do is tell us what make so we can avoid them....

Lol!

They cost £8 and say "made in China" ... go figure! They're all flappy and get caught in the spokes. I've fixed 'em though with a couple of slats of wood, four pop rivets, eight washers and a bit of Blue Peter ingenuity!

Unlucky X! You bought a set of the famous 'Pan Ya' N bags - you get in a right pickle when you try to use them.:wacko:

I'm sure I'd be able to somehow fix my big leather Railway man's bag onto my bike, complete with the bardic lamp on the bag's bracket instead, even if it was at the back displaying it's red gel!! :wacko:
