As I recall, there is the EXP and DXP sized MTX bags. The main part of each of these packs were nearly identical. Both have similar "side bags" (The DXP does have a small volume advantage.) However, the DXP has a bottle carrier on the back end of the pack. This additional feature is why I ended up choosing that particular pack. Hope this helps.. Either bag model should fit the bike sizes that are mentioned above. The racks that you will use for the trunk bags are adjustable for either size. My bike is a good deal larger than my wife's bike and both bags and racks fit each bike equally well.
As long as it is an MTX rack it should fit.
Can the trunk bag be used on a standard rack or do I have to buy the MTX rack. I already have a standard one from Blackburn Jul 7, 2014
There is a Topeak DXP version without the MTX system that can be used with any rack. Doesn't seem to be an exact feature-to-feature match (doesn't show the back water bottle holder, for example.) Shows up under the name Topeak Velcro Strap Version Dxp Trunk Bag with Rigid Molded Panels
Would a MacBook Pro (Height: 0.95 inch Width: 12.78 inches Depth: 8.94 inches ) fit in the top bag safely? Aug 21, 2014
No. It will sit diagonally inside wasting space. I would not do it but maybe others will.
I ride hills and do 35mph on rugged messed up asphalt. I don't want to worry about the bag. Will it handle these circumstances? Oakland out. Apr 13, 2015
The first time I used this bag it dropped after a slytly rugged path. I put on an extra attachment (a rubber band) and it is super secure now. It wouldn't drop even after a fall last week (I'm fine by the way!). So I'd recommend an extra attachment.
The hight of the panniers is 14"
I have a question on the MTX DXP bag this listing showes ( 14.5" x 8.5" x9.8" is this Length how long it is width & height how tall it is. Oct 23, 2014
Yes but the top has an extra zipper to make it expandable and the sides expand as well.
Is it the trunk bag or the front basket? if it is the trunk, does it include the bag rain cover? Jun 13, 2015
It's a rear trunk bag. There are two side bags that sadle the rack. You need to buy a Topeak rack. The rain cover does not come with the bag.
Any idea what the bungies attached to the bottom of the panniers are supposed to be used for! I can "wrap" them around the frame, but what purpose? Jun 2, 2015
That's to keep them from swinging outward, mostly if you turn quickly or have heavy items in them.
