Too much time on my hands while waiting for my 700 ! Have purchased a mirror, bell, lock, front wheel bag and a spoke tensor from Aliexpress. Looked at their panniers but couldn't tell about the quality. Glad I stuck with R1U. The panniers are of good quality, each side will accept a standard plastic grocery bag. Water resistant material. Both sides are attached meaning they will not separate. Not any problem. I believe this is better than 2 separate bags. Also this method allows you to use a cable lock to the rack to deter stealing. The attachment seems to be very secure and made specifically to fit R1U's rack. Now all I need is a bike to put all this stuff on 😷
