I mentioned before that I'm looking for some good quality panniers to take on this and future trips. Still am. Sound off if you hear of any.
I'll definitely be looking at this Swap Meet to see if any turn up.
My knee's still complaining about Sunday's ride. I stayed off it all week , but took a quick spin last night. I won't call what it did "hurting", more like "bothering", but it felt like any hammering with the left leg would change that description pretty quickly. I'll try again on Sunday and see what's up.
