Does Not Work With Thule Small Panniers
from Tucson, Arizona
Comments about Thule Pack 'n Pedal Side Frames:
I bought the whole line yards, front and rear racks, large and rear panniers and the whole set up was unstable and unsafe. Small panniers do not fit the rack even with this "extra" lowrider, Can not really believe they tested this before they sold me on it. Even with the lowrider attachment the small panniers do not connect with the magnet, which is the selling point of the whole system, they are way too high on the bike. I have toured Europe for seven years with Vaude panniers without a problem. These suck and not one should go with this system! #ripoff
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

GREAT ADDITION TO THE TOUR RACK
By TransAm Bob
from Irvine, CA
I bought the side frames to use with front panniers on my Thule Tour Rack. I bought these in order to have my front panniers ride lower than they would on the side rails of the rack. They will also keep your panniers away from the spokes, if your panniers have insufficient stiffening to keep their shape.The frames can be easily installed or removed in minutes. The quick-release style attachment to the rack tube is very secure.My Arkel bungee hooks could not attach to the frame, so I replaced them with different hooks from the hardware store. And, due to the thickness of the side frames, Ortleib panniers with a rotating anchor hook may need some creativity to secure the bottom of the pannier to the frame.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
