Which one, Giant loop or Ortlieb panniers
Thinking about taking advantage of the close out on the giant loop great basin bag, but have a few questions.
1. Understand they they are not waterproof, but will seam seal the tread holes. So the question is with only 2 magnetic fasteners on the zipper cover does rain make its way into the bag? Thinking I might sew/glue on Velcro to get it to better seal along its entire length.
2. Without any rear side racks on the bike, do they rub againist the rear plastic on the bike. If so was thinking about getting the side luggage racks on eBay.
3. Finally, any body have thoughts on the Ortlieb panniers?
