Merry Bike Christmas: New Panniers!

Mr. Ding made it quite a merry Christmas with some bike gear waiting under the tree with my name on it.  He gave me a pair of these Detours brand panniers!!  I think they will look quite lovely on Oma!

Detours Toocan Grassy PanniersIt’s got a zippered top that flips open to the full width of the bag, handle/straps , a shoulder strap, a flat rubber base and a raincover tucked inside a zippered pocket. It’s got a reflective strip on the back and the side hooks that loop over the rack look sturdy too.  I’ll throw up some pictures later in the week when I’ve got them loaded up on Oma.

    I have the same set, mint condition to sell if anyone is interested.

    Let us know how these do after a few months. I thought about these but ended up getting a waterproof Basil pannier. This one looks very nice though.

      Will do! I really like those Basil panniers as well, so I’ll be curious how those work out for you.

    I have this same style Detours bag in a different pattern. It is incredibly sturdy and looks as new as the first day I attached it to my bike. I highly recommend this pannier.

    Very nice! They will look great on Oma, all black and elegant with some natural thrown in. They fit your style perfectly as well, I think. Funtional yet beautiful! Happy New Year!
