Re: Backpack/Pannier/Saddlebag?

I operate either a single pannier or a Carradice camper longflap depending on which bike I'm taking to work. The carradice sits behind my legs, and I can zip along very nicely. The pannier mounted drive side as others have said ensures I get given more room.

I bought a pair of front panniers.

I use them on the rear. I don't have a lot of stuff to carry and there is no chance of pannier suck or heel strike.

I have two bikes that I use them on, both are mounted on the right side.

I use a shopping bag inside them, so when I get to work I just pull the whole inner bag out and leave the pannier on the bike. The inner bag, routine makes it easier to do a last minute bike change.
