Rear rack for Nashbar panniers?
« on: December 03, 2013, 07:46:06 am »
I'm starting out on the low budget touring. Ordered Nashbars waterproof panniers and was wondering if anyone else is using these and if so what rear rack works good with them? I've read here that sometimes panniers and rack don't match up so well and thought I would check here for some recommendations. I was thinking about the Topeak Supertourist Rack with sidebar, has anyone tried it?

Thanks

Jack

I have the Nashbar ATB panniers.  One big bag with a pull string top closure and a flap/pocket over the top.  One side pocket on the outside.  Probably similar to the waterproof Nashbar panniers in design.  Just different material used to construct them.  The attachment mechanism is two hooks on top and a bungee cord and hook at the bottom.  Also probably the same as yours.  I use a Blackburn Expedition rear rack.  And currently use a Nashbar front lowrider rack.  Have used a Blackburn lowrider rack in the past.

Have you look at the Surly rear rack I have two of them on my other bicycles and love them they do cost a little but well worth it to me.About 135 dollards.
