Today gave a new lease of life to my old Wilderness Equipment bicycle panniers. Replaced the old hook system which attached the bags to the pannier frame with modern Ortlieb type pannier clamps.

Far better system than the hooks which no matter what was done let the panniers fall off when bouncing along on rough tracks. Have a few cycle rides planned this year now that the summer heat has finally abated.

The WE's with an Ortlieb pannier behind them.

These Wilderness Equipment canvas panniers are 30 years old and are still in good order after all these years.

I bet you are looking forward to getting out on the pushy and camping . Up here in north qld the hot and humid weather doesn't start to drop off until around the start of may . Those panniers sure have stood the test of time .

Yes barra' will very soon be hitting the trails, long overdue. Very much want to see the results of the dreadful fires which swept through the bushland's I normally go.

Will be an interesting experience and shall put up track reports with plenty of photo's.
