Good afternoon/morning to all. I have been doing the never ending quest for panniers just like so many of you have done in the past. We all know the popular ones that have been discussed so many times here.
During my search for information I found Vern Worldbeater Panniers (http://www.projectvnd.com/index.htm). His cost is similar to most of the top end models and seem very well made.
So, my question is have you ever seen these panniers in person and what kind of drawback do you see in them. Some people will say one drawback is that they cannot be removed quickly. I have contemplated this and have decided that I would like a set of panniers to stay with the bike at all times, crash, hotel night etc. This works for me but not for some and I understand this so no need to debate this part.
I have been emailing with Vern and he seems like a really good guy to work with, just like other posts that I have seen elsewhere on the net.
