One thing I struggled with was figuring out how to attach them to the bike. No instructions are included, but there is a little plastic bag with two metal clips attached to the tag - you'll need to attach these to either side of your bicycle's rear axle (just slip them under the screw that's already holding the axle to the wheel, and re-tighten). Make sure you attach them with the top loop hanging down. Then, when you put your panniers on your bike rack, just slip the metal triangles (attached to the strip of fabric on the underside of the panniers) over each clip. There is also a fabric strap on the front of the panniers that you can loop around your rack, clip, and tighten for extra security.
Hope this helps. Happy riding!
The manufacturer suggests these are good for weekend rides to B & B's. I have no doubt this is true. However, after seeing how well my girlfriend's held up and how useful and easy to get on and off they were, I bought myself a pair, and we used them to ride inn to inn for the length of the Katy Trail. 1500 Cubic Inches was just right. We probably could have included camping gear if we needed to, but it would have been tight. As it was, they are the perfect size.
Having been caught out in a serious three hour long thunderstorm, we can vouch for the fact they are water resistant, but not waterproof. Putting clothes in baggies is a must. But they were not billed as waterproof, so this was not much of a surprise.
For the price, I've not found a better made pair of panniers. I'm not sure how Banjo Brothers does it, I'm just happy that they do.
But about a week ago, I was riding in a breeze and heard an odd noise, and couldn't figure out why. Then, a couple of days ago, I found out what the noise was: the breeze blew one of the panniers into my rear spokes, both breaking my rear wheel reflector and tearing one side of the pannier. It does not seem to be made of a material that can be repaired. Therefore, the pannier can no longer be used.
I had also noticed that my heels would hit the bags as I pedaled.
I would return the panniers, but all the deductions for returning a damaged item make the effort to do so a useless undertaking.
