okay, i've been fathoming the thought of back rack baskets vs. panniers for a while now and i've come to the conclusion that i need to have a pannier. i'm a little embarrassed that i haven't been all the ball of this because i've learned the hard way. i mean, i try to utilize what i have, thus my favorite Shakespeare and Company tote bag to carry my daily items , i.e. school work and books in my front basket and only use the double panniers for groceries or other shopping because they're huge! now my work and book loads are beginning to get heavier and with the rain lately i need some water proofing. it's only practical that i've been on the lookout and found this pretty lemon delux shopper pannier on the bicycle muse (love this site!). has anyone used these before? i'm placing in an order for them because honestly, i've become that crazy bag lady. can you tell how much i love the color yellow?! it's so happy!
