Part of an old Brooks Tradition

These fit perfectly on the rear carrier of my Pashley Sovereign; and they look fabulous. They're perfect for carrying home the shopping, and when rolled up are quite compact. I think they are probably a bit over the top price wise; taking into account the responses from Brooks on here; that said - quality always tells out. I'm very happy!

Cycling gives me the chance to get away on my own. Cycling brings me independence. It allows me the freedom I need after a busy day. Having the opportunity to leave the house with no real objective is a fabulous thing and meeting up with friends couldn't be easier. I'm quite a sociable person, so the more chance I have to see my friends on a regular basis, helps me deal with the pressures of living in the city.

The Brooks cycle bags let me carry as little or as much as I need. As my career varies from day to day, unpredictability is one of the major issues I have to contend with and with the Brooks products, they help as they are versatile and tough. The panniers offer huge assistance as they fold neatly away, but also when full, don't appear to be over bearing or unstable. The basket is a great way to go through daily life and also when shopping, helps protect the environment, which I am also passionate about. The Camden shopping bag is stylish, flexible and practical, everything I need to help with a busy day. And when I am rushing around the city, comfort is key. The Brooks saddle fits perfectly and will only get better with age.

I have treated myself to a new Pashley Princess Sovereign 22.5" frame and to finish it off for casually riding around have installed a Brick Lane Roll-up panier, a black D saddle bag and a B190 saddle. It looks just magnificent and it is obviously is real quality kit. This will be a case of quality remembered when price forgotten. Compared to the price my daughters spend on handbags these bags are extremly well made and good value for money.

Great idea and generally work really well - spacious when unrolled and can be packed into a tote when rolled up. However, the bungee cord immediately stretched to the point of being useless and the bottom inside of the bad tends to hit the non-drive side of my 20'' wheels, and it can push against the gear cable on the drive side. I've had these panniers for years and would recommend, but the price is pretty steep. Also, there's no way I ever leave them on my bike, so it can be a bit of a faff taking them on and off everyday.

Having read the criticisms AFTER buying the panniers, we immediately inspected them and applied adhesive velcro to the spot where indeed a hole was wearing through due to rubbing. Next, we found that one of the closing strap was poorly stitched and was coming apart (see http://slowcycles.com/images/Brooks-bag.jpg). Living on an island, we have an extensive workshop including a moving foot commercial sewing machine, so we repaired the flaw before the strap was lost. After that we discovered the the eyehole bolts that hold the leather strap work loose and disappeared. So, realising we never role them up, we took one of the bolts from the underneath and used thread-locker fluid that hopefully will keep it in place. More recently, we went to an Army Surplus store in Auckland, and found a better made pair of panniers for NZ$18 each, whereas the Brooks sell for NZ$280.



Brooks gets high marks for classic style, and high marks for tradition. However, somewhere along the line it appears that the old fellows who uphold the tradition must have died off and been replaced by smart-arsed yuppies who charge high prices for poorly-made goods. I don't begrudge justified high prices; that's what Savile Row and Bristol Cars are about. But when the quality resembles something a Chinese factory would turn out for ten bucks wholesale, I am less than impressed. Still love your saddles, grips and leather bags though.

I think that these are a very aesthetically pleasing and conventional pannier set. HOWEVER, that being said, I think that the price tag is absolutely crazy for waxed cotton and a Brooks stamp. At that price, the entire thing should be made of leather AND they should have a vegan option for those in need. I mean, come on... Yes, they're conventional. Yes, they're gorgeous. But thats because they're simple, they're timeless. They've been around for ages and will be of ages to come. So why the high price tag for such simple panniers? The design isn't anything that takes crazy work. The materials aren't super expensive, and they aren't even resistant to all weather. I mean, they're still worth it because somehow Brooks are the only one I've found that have done something like this but still. Im almost inspired to learn to sew so I can make my own. Whoever is, probably makes bank. Until then, Ill continue to use the pair I paid for but Im just saying....

COMMENT > I bought a B67 saddle a few months back - fantastic saddle and really good value. So, now I'm in the market for a bag, and being so impressed with my Brooks saddle, here I am. Come on Brooks - you're making a mistake here. In spite of (or perhaps because of) your "survey of 200 people", your marketing team has let you down. The bag may be made to a high standard, but pricing it solely as part of your brand placement strategy is a bit daft. Many people pay over the odds for items because of the label, or what ownership of the item implies, but I bet the vast majority of Brooks saddle owners are intelligent, reasoning people - that is after all why they choose to ignore passing trends by using the tried and tested Brooks saddle.

You may attract a few fashion conscious yuppies in the City, but you're creating a big opportunity for someone to cater to the real requirements of the bulk of your customer base.

Now, there's an idea....
REPLY > What you started saying is interesting, although we don't agree with some of your statements. Anyway what's the idea? That we should sell the bag at a lower price? Or that we should remove the logo? The survey with 200 people has been done, and over 140 have voted for the "logo version" of the bag. That counts to 70% of the focus group. Of course the other 30% of the group would have preferred the version without the logo. You can't make everybody happy, this is the limit of democracy.

I got these Panniers about a year ago as a gift and am sorry to say I'm very disappointed. They are falling apart. First one of the pieces that hold them together while rolled up fell off before I even got them on my bike. Since I didn't plan on having on my bike rolled up I wasn't too concerned. Then after my first ride one of the straps that attach them to my rack started coming loose. I thought i could still use them and did for a few other short rides. Then tried them for a long ride (about 80 miles) and when I got home most of the straps were falling off and all of the attachment pegs had fallen off. Don't make the mistake of spending a lot of money on these bags if you plan on using them to carry things. They do look very pretty rolled up on the back of your bike though.

What a shame! It appears that Brooks' claim that it accepts and publishes both positive and critical opinion appears to be untrue.
