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.
