NEW Coated stainless steel pannier rack clip attachments

This bag is fitted with coated stainless steel clips designed to fit cycle rack tubing up to 12mm in diameter (most racks).


The hooks can be adjusted inwards (or outwards) if required. Please note, if using hooks on tubing thinner than 8mm, the hooks can be closed by 1 to 2mm with a pair of pliers to ensure hooks snap securely on to your luggage rack.


If your rack tubing is 8mm -12mm, the first couple of fits when new may be tight but the hook will adjust to fit your rack.


(NB If changing your rack from thicker to thinner tubing, the hooks will need to be adjusted inwards / tightened with a pair of pliers to fit)
