640 Got the pannier frames, now what lugguage ?
« on: July 30, 2012, 01:08:41 pm »
Hi guys

We're planning a trip shortly so I'm in desperate need of some sort of packing arrangement on the bike.

Attached are a pic of the bike with the pannier frame on, so what luggage would you guys suggest & why ?

At the moment I'm thingking of soft bags, tried the Oxfort ones but they don't seem to fit ?

Please bear in mind that cost are somewhat of a factor...... ::)

Thanks !

Wolfman!

Just got myself a set - they are the really awesome!
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Hi Thysman

An option - along with Enduristan - for you to think about - is Flying Brick system luggage (2 detachable bags).
The whole system bag is likely a little long for a 640; however the bag is designed to be split into two, so you could choose the smaller bag for shorter trips, or the bigger bag for longer trips (basically a 60/40 combo).

I have attached a picture; otherwise www.flyingbrick.co.za

Cool that you've got some 'free' panniers in exchange for Red heart Rum (though I prefer the 'Captain' meself!)

Thanks for spreading the word - mighl shortly have a distributor (of sorts) in Bloemfontein - will provide details when deal inked.

Cheers! (literally and figuratively!)

very happy, took a tumble a few times and no tears.

i totally submerged them in my pool for about 40 seconds (effort to clean em) and was surprised to see they were still dry on the inside!

the best is i picked em up for around R2500... so you dont break the bank when you take a dive.. and when space is a issue gooi cable ties around them to flatten em up..
