Mwave day tripper double pannier, 11 Feb. 2011
I assembled the pannier in less than 6 minutes. Although the plastic inserts seem a very tight, impossible fit initially, there is a technique for inserting them successfully. Each plastic piece ( 4 in total ) has 2 pockets inside the pannier for insertion. Don't force too far one corner into a pocket. Try to evenly push both corners in and slowly they do go in. Start with the top insert because you can see what you are doing. Then once inserted bend the plastic in the opposite direction ( inwards ) towards you. Take the bottom end and carefully nudge it into the slot at the base of the bag. This takes a little longer and may seem impossible at first, but keep on slowly pushing the plastic corners into the pocket evenly. Push down on the bended plastic for extra force. It should all go in without any tear to the fabric.
The pannier seems like a strong shopping bag even without the plastic inserts so I am not afraid of putting in weighty shopping. Hope this review is helpful.
