These frames are intended to be basic and lightweight supports for our saddle bags. They are webbed and braced for maximum stiffness but weigh only 1.5 kg (plus bolts) for both, yep that's both sides. Add a pair of Avduro Pannierz and the whole luggage system comes in under 4.5kg!
As the weight of the bags is carried on the seat we only require the frames to stop the panniers flapping about or contacting the exhausts.
You'll see all sorts of comments out there in webland. A common comment is that our frames are too lightweight. Our approach is to make a frame that can take minor tumbles, be straightened with a pair of hands and a size nine after bigger ones, repaired in a cockies shed and protect the subframe of the bike by being somewhat "sacrificial". Andy Strapz pannier support sets weigh in the region of 2kg so we ain't making crash bars for the rear.
Supplied with all fittings and spacers required.
What an awesome product and customer service!!. Dropped in to the Andystrapz store to pickup my pannier frames. Andy says “why don’t we just install them, it will only take 15 minutes”. He opened the workshop door, gave me the required tools and helped me fit the pannier frames there and then. Pannier frames look the part, are built to do the job and you can’t beat the customer service. Highly recommend Andystrapz.
