There is a seat post mount for a rack that the panniers attach to . Go to your dealer, they should have them in stock.

I have a Schwinn Broadway Hybrid bike that came with a great rack attached over the rear wheel behind the seat. Next month we're going to be taking a trip where the SunLite Panniers I bought will be a...

The manufacturer's website is alway a good place to start.

Since they make several models, well... go look for yourself.

Then call them up and ask where they hide the instructions for your panniers.

Sunlite Cycling
11925 SW 128th Street
Miami, FL 33186
(305) 238-1866

Generally, they hang or hook on the top of the rear rack and there are usually hooks on the inward surface intended to be securde to rigging points on the lower part of the rack legs. Some also have lashing straps for eliminating any sway or load shifting.

Or you could just call a Local Bike Shop and ask them.

Hi - I have a 3 bike Avenir bike rack - wondered how people kept their bikes safe on them if they left their vehicles ?

Chain all the bikes together with a large bike lock. If you can, chain it to your cars trailer hitch too.

Could a hardtail be used for touring, would it be able to carry reanonably heavy loads?

There is no reason to doubt the physycal load-bearing capacity of a bike that isn't built stupid-light to begin with. Your wheels should be strong enough for the added weight. Get some good road-worthy tires but keep the size large enough for rim protection.

You won't like how it feels if you stand and pedal but it can be done. I've toured on full suspension. I find a mountain bike set up for the road frees my eyes for scenery instead of scanning the pavement for pebbles and cracks.

Get a Blackburn or comparable rear rack and slap some panniers and a rack-pack on it. I'd also consider adding bar-ends for variety in your hand positions as the miles pile up. I even add an aero bar for the long descents of mountainous areas.

If you can find a front pannier or rack system that will work with your fork you might opt for that instead or in addition to the rear rack. Your weight distribution should not all be on the rear. I find front panniers slow the steering down in a pleasant way, making rider input smoother and resisting sudden swerves that can make you loose front traction.

Added weight is not the drag on the actual riding experience that it is on paper. Once you're in motion you tend to keep it, so it pays to rider smarter and plan for red lights by timing your arrival for the green so you don't have to invest all that energy into accelerating again. Tandem riders catch onto this in time for the same reasons. Loaded downhills are a thrill.

Test ride the loaded rig before your trip. Do some long hills just so you know how to adjust your effort. Have fun.

We bought some Schwinn panniers and have tried 3 different racks (2 Schwinn and one Bell). The panniers do not attach securely to any of the three. Is there a trick to this? The hooks on the panniers...

Most panniers have adjustable connectors for different racks. Schwinn may make a specific rack for your pannier. I recommend Ortlieb packs and Tubus racks.

Assembling Avenir Alloy Rear Pannier Rack I need assembling instructions. I bought it new but it came without instructions.

Avenir makes a wide variety of pannier products, from a simple metal rack that clamps to the seatpost
all the way to a full touring rig with three or more bags

I'm going to guess that you're talking about the simple metal rack, and the seatpost-clamp style. If you have a different product, post back with the model number (use the "add comment" link to the right) and I'll take a swag at the instructions for your product.

For the seatpost-clamp rack, the clamp is held on by four bolts. It's important that they be tightened evenly, and the only way to accomplish this is to tighten them each a little bit at a time.
Put the rack on the back of the seatpost, so the platform has plenty of space over the back tire. If you're mounting this on a full-suspension mountain bike, be sure to allow enough space for wheel travel.
There is a small square plate with bolt holes in the corners that will match the front end of the platform. This is called the mounting plate.
Put the mounting plate on the front of the seatpost, and thread in each of the four bolts. Don't tighten them yet, just make sure that the threads are seated and that the plate is even (not clamped down tight on one side and angled out on the other)
Tighten the bolts until the mounting plate and the platform are each touching the seatpost, and again make sure that the sides are even.

Now, tighten each bolt 1/2 turn at a time, going back and forth in an X pattern over all four bolts.
When you can no longer (easily) move the platform from side to side, you should stop tightening so you don't damage your seatpost from over clamping.

If your seatpost is too skinny to get a solid clamp, the rack should have come with some rubber shims that you can use to fille the extra space.

Again, if I just described the wrong product, post back with a comment here and include the model number, and I'll help you out.

Fasten car stereo to motorcycle

Ive seen many different ways of attaching stereos to bikes, the most successful of these were hidden from view & therefore difficult to access (to change discs etc). Most of the others were the cause of various types of damage to the bike, inflicted by opportunist thieves who fancy an easy steal (no car to break into!!)
Depending on the size of your units, the player may well fit under the rear panel (tail light housing) & the speakers will fit in the panniers. This will ensure that extra wiring is kept to a minimum; small holes can be drilled in the sides of the rear panel & the back of the panniers, for wires to the speakers
The speakers can be fitted to the inside of the drop-down lids or high inside the back of the panniers.
This would be mainly for entertainment when parked up.
For music on the move an MP3 player would be better, this could fit into any pocket or a docking bracket on the handlebars, sending music to your headphones via bluetooth.
With high end systems 'direct ipod control' gives you the power to control your ipod from your head unit or visa versa, JVC KDR models can also be controlled by an iphone, have a remote control unit included & detachable fascias

Ride safe
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)
