The most frequently asked question is: Which pannier fits my recumbent? Not an easy question with the vast diversity of recumbents, but on this page we will try to help you as good as we can. At the bottom of this page we made a table with all pannier-recumbent combinations we know. If your recumbent is not in the list, or if you have questions, updates, ideas..., mail us! By finding new combinations you will will help other recumbent riders as well.
Side panniers general notes
1. Side panniers come in two versions, depending on the type of seat for which they are meant: a mesh- and a hard shell version. A hard shell seat is narrow, panniers will be suspended next to the seat, with the rear strap on the luggage rack. A mesh seat is wider, pannier for this type will end up under the seat, with the rear and middle strap on the luggage rack.
2. Side Panniers Racer don\'t need a luggage rack. All others do.
3. Most of the time a large pair of side panniers will not fit a low recumbent, because it will be so low that the bottom touches the ground (in curves).
Rear bag general notes
1. Rear bag types Solo and Universal are suspended freely from the seat and don\'t need a luggage rack. Keep in mind that luggage rack may even interfere with these bags.
2. Rear bag types Rack bag always need a rack. Always compare the length of your rack with the length of the bag to ensure a proper support of the bag.
3. Solo bags come in narrow and wide. Hard shell seat widths vary so much that we have to offer these two types to ensure a proper fitting. If the table does not give the required width, please mail us the circumference of your seat at 8 inches below the top and we will check which type you need.
