    I loved this bag. It was so beautiful and it made my bike look so great. After my first ride with it though, I nearly killed myself. The design? is terrible, for some reason, the bottom corners of the bag curve inward towards the spokes and get caught, thus almost causing an accident.

    I don’t think anything could help this design, i think it’s just too big of a square bag. Perhaps a metal skeleton to keep the edges from turning in towards the wheel.

    Also, I couldn’t figure out a way to permanently attach the bag so it wouldn’t get stolen, and it definitely was not easy to take on and off my bike with each stop. Plus the velcro connections at the bottom of the panniers didn’t seem logically designed and were next to impossible to connect.

    While I loved the look of these bags, I’m giving them four stars because they didn’t work out for my bike — they are VERY large and no matter how I positioned them on the rack, the bags hit my feet as I pedaled. They are quite roomy, they just don’t work on my Raleigh 21-speed.

    After reading the reviews, I wasn’t going to buy these. However, my sister gave them to me for my birthday and I am so happy she did. I have an Electra Townie that I’ve added the fenders and rack to. There is no way anything can get caught in the wheels. Because of the way the fenders are attached, it keeps the bags away from the wheels. I put my computer and library books in these and have never had a problem. My feet have never hit the bags. They fit perfectly and I love them! They are so cool.
