    small rack/pannier-esque setup on my 29er

    Still waiting for some pannier hardware to modify the goggle cases.

    It's great. I highly recommend it. Easily adjustable. No pogo effect.

    All done. Rack, cases and hardware came out to about $65. Setup is super-sturdy.

    Once the bungee breaks in, I'll trim the excess. One can be used as a trunk bag.


    Found a few mounting brackets in the garage that fit perfect. And they're black.


    Here is the modification all finished. Gonna add a PB tail light on the rear.

    What are the bags you`re using? They look a little like camera/video cases.

    Also, a suggestion for mounting DIY luggage. I`ve got a few bags that I screwed Lone Peak pannier clips onto. They have a small hook that rotates around a tube to lock on and are available for either 5/16 (8mm) tubing or 3/8 (10mm) They do cost more than the rubber coated clips you have there, but still not too bad. I bought them from thetouringstore.com for $20 per four clips plus a few bucks in postage IIRC. They aren`t listed on the website, but if you call or email he`ll ship you some.

    I have to say again that I love the idea of the rear mounting for Nashbar mini rack!

    They are goggle cases. This is my 1st attempt in modifying any bag/case. So far, it's good. I'm open to changes. I'll check those clips you mentioned. Thanks.

    Cool, but I wouldn't use it. For the same reasons I didn't get any Nitto mini racks. Price and the need for p-clips.

    Yeah, that is cool. You`re right that it`s expensive- looks like $75 MSRP. I think it`s much prettier than the N-bar rack, but you can`t beat $10! P-clips might not be needed though. Maybe they offer legs to mount the same rack to canti studs?
