Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Hi Everyone, I am dead chuffed to now have my new rack fitted on my bike and the bag that started me off on this journey of learning. In the end, we decided to remove the lock on back wheel, attach tubus roundstays from rack to a new seat clamp and use the fitting shown on one of the posts, which fi...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Golly,
I just looked up Sheldon Brown’s website and found loads of interesting topics to read. What a clever and knowledgeable man and such a shame his life was cut short. I had better try and educate myself......never too old to learn!

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Does that mean I should have ordered a 29 inch rack going by the tyre size then? Tyre say WTB 1.75 29 . It’s all very confusing as I thought rack size meant size of wheel not complete with tyres. I have a lot to learn. Yes, you are right. I will return it for the correct one. If you could clarify if...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Hi again At last, My rack has arrived but unfortunately it is too short by about half an inch. It is supposed to be for a 26 inch wheel but will be too close to mudguard pushing it down on tyre - the ne t size up is supposed to be for. 28 inch wheel. Should I have bought that one I wonder. Does anyo...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

After waiting patiently for my rack to arrive, company told me there has been an error and it’s still in the warehouse in Germany! Looks like I will have to be even more patient!

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Checking on order, I see it is coming from Germany, so that’s the reason it’s slower. No worries though as gives me time to plan. I will probably be needing your wise heads again once I have it here. It will be a good feeling once it’s on and I can use my bag. It’s good to have all this advice and i...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Yes, I have the bag but am waiting for the rack to come. It was despatched a few days ago but hasn t yet arrived to DPD for delivery to me. I wish it would hurry up as I want to get on with it. Yesterday when I was out, my silkroad bag which is kept on the bike with Velcro straps, slipped to the sid...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Hi again Yes I agree about the lock. I have purchased a gold rated hip lock set. It’s the U lock, chain and z lock so I am now covered by my insurance should it get stolen when I am in a busier place than I normally am. Although pricey, I thought it was worth paying out on security. I can’t see that...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

I am starting to feel more positive about the job, due to all you clever people. Now I have started - I will have to finish. It’s strange how one can get fixated on an idea, or is that just me?
This is a brilliant forum, especially for those wanting to learn. Thanks a lot

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Hi This all makes interesting reading, though slightly daunting. I am hoping when the rack comes, my handy hubby may take on the challenge! The reflector is on the existing rack but the light is on the mudguard. Having spent a lot of time examining where things are joined etc, I can see that it will...

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

I have looked where the wires come from. They come out by the middle near the pedals and go straight up the underside of mudguards which are attached under the lock as well as the ends and top brackets. I will attempt to post some pics of bag and cycle.

Re: Fitting different pannier rack to ebike

Hi
It’s called the road master shopper and the capacity is 11 litres. I bought it through eBay and it was posted from a Germany. I have had it too long to send it back unfortunately.
