Blaze Panniers for Sale
on: February 18, 2016, 01:18:40 PM
I bought these panniers for my 2014 Crossrunner but I am now selling the bike and hence these panniers (I have bought a R1200RT with full luggage, so I no longer need the panniers.)

They are about £225 to buy new, depending on whether you buy from Germany or UK. Yours for £125 + postage. I will list on eBay in about a week's time.

I used them about four times. I haven't cleaned them, so you can see from the light dusting of road dirt that they have, indeed, been used for a few dry trips. I will give them a bit of a brush up before posting.

What I like about them:

    Not much "scaffolding" to spoil the look of the bike when the panniers are not fitted
    easy to install the fitments - just four bolts
    easy to throw over the panniers - takes about 20 seconds
    slim enough for filtering, when not expanded
    quite capacious when expanded
    waterproof inners - unused

What I am not so keen on, and you will have to make up your own mind, is:
    You can't lock them on
    the pillion has to sit on the straps - although they do lie flat.

PM me with any queries.

Thanks and see photos below.

Here is a Youtube clip about them.

I'm interested. 
Could you not fit them with the seat off and then the straps would be under the seat?  This would also make them more difficult to steal.

Si, yes, I did think of that too, but the seat won't lock down with the straps underneath.

On the plus side, one can simply take them off and sling them over one's shoulder, and walk away, which is not really possible with hard luggage.

So I think one has to consider how one will use them.  For example, taking one's laptop and lunch to work would be fine, but if you want to ride to Snowdon and leave your bike and panniers in the car park, you run the risk of losing them.

I have a 46L Givi topbox which can take the valuable stuff, so I can live with the inherent security issue of soft luggage panniers.
I'll take them off your hands if they are still for sale.  :002:

Finally got around to fitting the panniers and was delighted to discover that with a Top Sellerie seat the straps can be fitted under the seat.  :002:

Straightforward to fit and easy to remove the panniers when not needed.  Just need to keep the click-in sliders slightly lubricated so they don't stick.

Hi chaps

Does anyone have any views on the blaze panniers? I'm thinking of investing in a pair
