Absolutely stonking good deal, and cant believe free delivery as well! HOT HOT HOT!! Great find and share OP!!!!!

Nice find OP. Heat +1.

Nice - I have a Thule pannier bag for commuting but was looking for something cheap to add to the other side of the rack for balance and occasional shopping / 5-a-side kit etc.

Hot. Thanks OP

Save your money , absolute tosh mine didnt last the first ride before starting to fall apart.

Anyone got suggestions for *really* big panniers, while I'm here?

(Note that there's plenty of reports these aren't the claimed size in the reviews there.)

Really cool, ordered! Thanks OP!!!

Perfect timing. Thanks OP!

Thanks op, I've ordered but not expecting them to last very long as they use those hooks, which on my last bags snapped off 32292523-ksH4f.jpgi suppose depends on what they are made from, anyone know what the other hooks in my screenshot below are used for 32292523-8ZaKk.jpg

I use Ortlieb classic panniers for my daily commute. Not cheap but they are very well made and good design. I also have 100% confidence that they will keep my stuff dry.

I have the panniers from decathlon which convert into suitcase style wheeled luggage. They hold loads for £30. One of the biggest you could possibly get.

Ortlieb Back Roller Pro are huge, 70 litres for the pair. Though not cheap.
Or look at Vaude and Carradice, they have some quite big panniers (50 to 60 litres).

These look like a branded version of the cheap panniers SJS Cycles have been selling on e-bay for donkeys years, and via their site (currently 9.99 also). They certainly are 'delicate', poorly made from cheap fabric, but if you treat them with that in mind they are ludicrously good value at £5 each. I've used a pair for shopping and they've lasted over 2 years but the light fabric is now worn to holes.

The hooks are for clipping the bags to the lower points on the rack, to stop them jumping off, but the elastic provided is far too weak, I replaced with loops of light bungee cord and threw the hooks away.

Cheers - same size as the Ortlieb ones suggested above (which do look good; ta), but a good bit cheaper.

As it goes; I've wondered about converting pensioner-style shopping trolley things into bike panniers - lots of room and the structure to stop them going in my wheels - currently using some motor bike ones that are maybe 40l or a little bit more, but don't quite work on a push bike as a different design.

Will keep an eye on ebay for the Ortlieb ones too.

super newbie question...if I have a normal mountain bike, do i need something extra to attach these bags???

State's in UK but it's a Chinese seller! Hmmmm

I use the Crivit pannier bags. I bought them from Lidl three years ago ( £10.00 ) and use them at least twice a week i.e I remove them after each trip. They have a water proof bag contained in a zip pocket on the under side. Attached by clips and backed up by a Velcro strap. Inside they have a zip pocket and down each side a sleeve that will hold largish bottles etc. NB. I do most of my food shopping by bike so these sometimes hold quite heavy loads. I would have no hesitation in buying them again when and if these two pack up.

Yeah it hooks around the pannier rack and clips back onto the pannier. I have these and have not had any issues with them, although I don’t use them very often, hence why I bough a cheap pannier. If you need a set for daily use I’d spend some more money but if you use them once or twice a week they should lastyou a long time.

My not be in the UK right now - but at least if it comes to a return - should be a return to the UK.

There's another cheaper one of the same that offers to get to me the 50 miles or so from London in 2 weeks I see!

You'll need a rack (probably a thin one for those clips to mount to - maybe get the bags first and take one with you when you go rack shopping?). First check you bike has mounting points for a rack (most do but not all). Beware attachment hooks, etc which could get into the wheel and cause an accident!

I'd suggest reading the many poor reviews - not necessarily to put you off as these really do seem very cheap but so that you'll know the potential weak points. I suspect many of the clips have broken because the racks are too thick for them.

Be aware that if you fill these up with heavy stuff (eg groceries) the balance of your bike will be seriously affected and you may find yourself doing unintended wheelies!
