The sixty day adventure has been my first foray into the world of racks and panniers. In the past I've commuted with an awesome Chrome bag (which I still very much love). I knew this time around my commute would involve hauling my computer, textbooks, riding clothes, running clothes, extra shoes, and groceries. I knew I needed a space upgrade. Enter the dual pannier. A little more work than throwing on a backpack, but my panniers have these nice velcro straps which make strapping the bags to your rack virtually pain free. They also allow me to easily haul a good 20+ lbs of crap daily.
