Nice! Have you found any micro or mini panniers for that rack? I've been looking for some for one of my Tern's which has a front rack but so far not much luck (didn't want to pay the high price for Ortliebs). What do you think of the Moto-X tires? I was debating between 2 similar versions of the Riese and Muller I ordered (bike not here yet). One had Big Bens and the other the wider Moto-X. Opted for the Moto-X tires with some trepidation (thinking the Big Bens might be more efficient for city riding).
@Over50 I'm a big fan of Schwalbe's Super Moto-X tires. I have the lighter version on my Jeff Jone 29er, so the 27.5 model was a logical choice when it came time to get less aggressive tires for the IZIP.
Thule sent a pair of their large Shield panniers to be reviewed with the Pack 'n Pedal rack, but I suspect they'll be overkill for my commute. Most likely I'll end up using a pair of Ortlieb Sport-Packer Plus panniers.
