Urban Commuter Expo: Nice Pannier!

We met a nice fella at the expo that showed us his nice home made panniers. It’s a wonderful idea that doesn’t cost more than a bucket of detergent.

He basically took some old detergent buckets (rectangular shaped) and cut the handles bent them and latched it onto the rack.

The lip of the bucket keeps them secure.

The owner said that its pretty easy to remove but it won’t come off when he’s got load in it.

We thought it was a pretty brilliant idea…and he recycled his trash. We even joked with him about painting it to match his bike and get some bullet hole stickers on the side to add some character.
