Topeak's Explorer Tubular Rack is a great add-on for carrying a trunk bag, pannier or anything else you want to strap onto your big-wheeled bike. It's made of tubular aluminum, fits most bikes with disc brakes, hauls up to 55 pounds and has a center strip that acts like a short fender. It's compatible with Topeak's QuickTrack bags and accessories (sold separately), too.
The mesh-sided Grocery Bag Pannier is the perfect bag for riding down to the store for light shopping trips. A standard paper grocery sack fits perfectly inside or, better still, the Grocery Bag Pannier can be thrown over your shoulder and carried inside the store with its 1.5" shoulder strap (included) for use as a shopping bag (use our pannier, save a tree)! Its symmetrical design and versatile, low-tech bungee mounting system allow it to be mounted on either side of your bike and make it easy to get the bag on and off your rack. There is a three-pocket daisy chain stitched at the bottom of the suspension system so that you can adjust the bag farther to the rear for greater heel clearance, or closer to the bike's center if you so desire. When not in use the bag can be folded up and secured out of your way by a pair of snaps on webbing tails. When you are ready to carry a load, be it groceries or briefcase, simply pop the snaps, attach the webbing tails to the snap heads on the back of the frame sheet to keep them out of your spokes, and load up. There is also an optional mesh hood for the Grocery Bag Pannier to help keep items from bouncing out on turbulent journeys (shown in taupe for photographic purposes; only available in black). The Grocery Bag Pannier has four new improvements to increase durability: stainless steel clamps, a plastic runner to decrease wear, a vinyl bumper, and a lap seam for the mesh. That said, this Pannier is a simple yet versatile addition to your cycling gear-you'll soon wonder what you ever did without it.
When we first introduced our Quick Release Bracket (QRB) we had a rash of requests for the bracket on our Grocery Bag Panniers. Before too long we came up with a smaller version that might not accommodate a week's worth of groceries but is perfect for a quick trip down to the corner market for a few necessities. We reduced the size from the pannier version to keep the bottom of the pack off the front wheel and narrowed the shoulder strap to 1", but we've retained the solid back and bottom sheets, airy front and side mesh panels, and snap-up foldaway convenience.
Jandd's Mountain 4 Handlebar Pack has 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material, an HDPE frame sheet,a foldaway map compartment and main, front and flat pockets. The Mountain 4 also has the Jandd QRB mount system and D-rings for an optional shoulder strap. The hideaway map flap is perfect for cyclists on the go who occasionally need to reference their location, but do not always need a map window fixed to the top of the pack. The map flap tucks behind the floating front pocket when not in use. The map is protected by marine-grade vinyl, guaranteed not to yellow for ten years.
Topeak's MTX TrunkBag EX is perfect for commuting and running errands on your bike. This great bag is constructed of 600-denier nylon with rigid molded panels and features a padded shoulder strap and carry handle for maximum convenience.

Added features include a reflective strip, a clip for a rear light and bungee cords on top.
For the serious cycle tourist, nothing completes the perfect setup like either of the Jandd Touring Handle Bar Pacs. These packs are mounted securely to the handlebars by Jandd's Quick Release Bracket, allowing the bags to be attached and detached instantly. When secured to the mounting brackets the Touring Pacs are extremely stable as the result of HDPE stiffener plates and a diagonal rod stock stiffener. The diagonal rod pivots allow these bags to be folded flat, a great convenience for storage or when packing for air travel. The Handle Pacs also have d-rings for optional shoulder straps or for storing in a closet. Chock full of useful features, the main compartment opens away from the rider to allow easy access on the go and sports an interior elastic strap on one side for securing an extra water bottle in an upright position. Side compression straps can be pulled tight to ensure stable load distribution, and the roomy mesh side pockets have been redesigned with an elastic strip at top to keep their contents from bouncing out on bumpy terrain. To locate your position in any weather, the Touring Pacs each come equipped with a marine-grade vinyl zippered map compartment on top, and a strip of 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material runs across the front of each bag. While the Touring I has a single flat pocket across the front, the Touring II has an additional front pocket with a separate flat front pocket, all with storm-flapped zippers. Whether complementing a set of touring panniers or used alone, either Touring Handle Bar Pac is an excellent way to carry gear with instant accessibility.
The Rear Rac Pac II is modeled after the Rac Pac I, with a roomy main compartment, a side opening pocket in the top flap, our secure five-point attachment system, 1/2" 4 lb. foam padding on all six sides, 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material across the back end with a section for attaching a clip-on light, and D-rings front and back for attaching an optional shoulder strap. In the more deluxe Rac Pac II we've increased the amount of space available for storage with the addition of two roomy side pockets, and the main compartment is an inch taller. By far the most ingenious addition to the bag is an expandable zip-open baffle, which allows the top of the bag to tilt up and increases the main compartment volume by 52%. With the baffle fully unzipped you can fit just about anything in this bag but the kitchen sink. We've also added a couple of hook and loop straps on one side of the Pac for ease in securing a tire pump. The material used in the Rac Pac II is Hydrothane-coated for superb water repellency, every possible seam is taped, and storm flaps protect every zipper to ensure that no moisture will get in unless you put it there yourself.

The Expedition Rack is the rack of choice for cyclists who require exceptional durability and expanded size, measuring a full three inches longer than our standard rack. Built from 3/8" 6061 aluminum stock, the Expedition Rack is intended to be used primarily with our Large Mountain and Expedition Panniers where additional rear clearance may be needed for large loads. However, the Expedition is also a good choice when more room is needed for carting the evenings firewood or portaging large containers of water. The secret to this racks tremendous strength is a third support strut which angles back 21 degrees from the main load bearing strut. In addition, the rear support strut offers a 6" long section for attaching the lower portion of your panniers suspension system to enable precise positioning of your load. All stress points are double-welded.

Styled after the Mini Mountain Pannier, the Economy Panniers have a single main compartment, heavy-duty storm-flapped zippers, 3M Scotchlite Reflective Material for greater visibility, and a double layer of material to strengthen the bottom.
