    Local Grocery Pannier Bag

    We like to think that the true signs of a cycling aficionado aren't necessarily the most expensive parts or the most boutique gear, but the implementation of the smartest and most practical gear that makes bike life more enjoyable. The Blackburn Local Grocery Pannier is such an item. It's a tough, weatherproof, well-made cargo bag that looks good, attaches easily to a rear rack, is collapsible, and includes a fold-away shoulder strap. It's also compatible with Blackburn's ingenious Interlock rack system that allows you to lock items to the rack without immobilizing the bike.

    • Carry all your groceries home safely in this 16-liter pannier
    • Folds out of the way when you're not using it
    • Compatible with Blackburn's Interlock system, and all standard racks
    • Reflective print and side flash loops boost your visibility
    • Removable shoulder strap allows for use when you're off the bike
    • Bag secures on bike with a single key when used with Interlock racks

    Cool Bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I use this all the time and love it. Big enough but not too big!

    backpack holder/grocery getter...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Mounts easily on/off a cannondale rear rack on a Surly Ogre commuter/touring bike and is secure when attached (jumping curbs and whacking potholes doesn't dislodge it). It is not necessary to use the 'locking' blackburn rack (in photo)--it will go on virtually any pannier capable rack. That said--you're at the mercy of your fellow man if you don't use the locking rack...anybody could quickly take the pannier off an unattended bike. I can slip my messenger bag or small backpack in this when riding--getting them off my back and avoiding perspiration from their being on my back. The pannier will capably hold groceries and/or cans/bottles of your fav beverage. The pannier folds flat with velcro straps when not in use (on or off bike). I run a single pannier on one side--you only notice the lopsided weight when fully loaded and walking the bike (up stairs etc.,). I'm deducting a star because after 6 months of semi-regular use, I sense the velcro will eventually wear out rendering the folding feature useless (until replacing the velcro). Maybe a nylon (backpack style) buckle would be better than the velcro??? This has become a permanent fixture on my commuter bike and kudos to Utahn's...nobody's snatched it (yet). Final note--for potential users with smaller wheels/chainstays...you may get heel strike (when pedaling) if your setup is unable to get this pannier mounted sufficiently rear of the pedal area. This is not a defect in the pannier--mostly a product of a bike/rack not well suited to holding panniers. This pannier is rectangular (most efficient/useful for packing and folding) but as such, lacks the corner cutout out some panniers have helping to alleviate pedal strike possibility (if you have heel strike--find one of these). Many of your commuter bikes, touring bikes etc., have a rear end (wheelbase etc.,) made for stability and racks/panniers. You may be less successful modding an old mountain bike or road bike even if it has rack mounts...
