I'm looking to buy a pair of rear panniers in good condition. Preferably around 2500 in size. If you are looking to unload an old set, please reply to this posting.


Gear Talk / herbie 611 kickstand

Does anyone know where I can purchase a Herbie 611 rear mounted kickstand? They are made in Germany and are of the best quality, but I can't locate any retailers in the US. I know Minoura sells a similar one but it looks flimsy compared to the Herbie.

Gear Talk / Panniers - What Size?
« on: December 19, 2004, 01:41:02 am »
I've seen plenty of info on what brand pannier to buy but not much information on sizes? I am just starting out touring and plan on doing some short self supported tours this summer(3-4 days). I'm looking into sleeping bags, tents, etc. But what size panniers does anyone recommend to pack this stuff?

I picked up some old kirtland rear bags for a couple bucks that are 11"h x 5"w x 13"l with a large side pocket. Maybe 800 each. They look small when I compare to photos of packed bikes. I have not packed them yet. Should I look for larger rear bags and use these in the front?

I also ride an old Raleigh toruing bike with 27" wheels. You can find a wide variety of 27" tires an dwheels at

I bought the Michelin World Tours which are nice and big for loaded touring.
