My new panniers

let me show you them...

shopping at Trader Joes




out riding...


I ordered them from DutchBikeSeattle. I rediscovered this site after reading the Let's Go Ride A Bike blog (link to the left). It is a FastRider brand that was imported from Holland. Great price, really great service and great freaking panniers that fit my wider European style rack.

yay! Another view (on the bike path waiting at a green light)


I got a new seat, new Schwalb heavy duty tires and new pannier bags. All I need now is a new basket and The Broad will be perfect.

Those are so cute! Glad I helped bring you two together :)

I'm thinking of buying the red and white polka dotted ones.

Love the 'dotty' style panniers. Your skirt and heels look great too!
I passed along your blog link to a journalist in your area wanting to do a special on chic riders in SoCal.
I hope she contacted you!!!You look spectacular!

V. cute -- How much do they weigh? Do they change the feel of yr ride?

Siel, they weigh only a few ounces. I cannot really feel a difference when they are empty. I carry a change of clothes every day and only feel real weight when I carry a spare pair of shoes. Or when I go shopping, especially when I carry 4 bottles of wine and groceries. whew...
