Very nice BP. Is that a Blue hi viz taper I see along the bottom of the side of the panniers?

Hi Robin,

Yes, that is just some left over tape I had in my toolbox for ages. I was rather disappointed that the paint protection kit does not have panels for the lower parts of the pannier covers. These areas are some of the first to touch the ground on a drop so I decided to use my own tape. It might just stop the worst of any gravel rash.

Nice one BP

I've only stripped the outer part of the panniers and a couple of areas on the top box.
Effective though seams to keep others off the arse end  :005: :005:

Here's my version - just wider stripes.
It certainly works, especially in the depths of winter commuting and in heavy rain.
Had the same on a Pan for years and I reckon it saved my bacon a few times.
