Very nice Guy! Any chance you could share some detailed photos on how you mounted the Rodark panniers? Did you make the mounts or use a mount that was commercially available in the past?

Thanks.

Paul

I made my own mount out of 4mmx25mm flat bar it is mounted at the top mudguard mount goes straight down and hooks over the bottom mudguard stay then goes under the panniers and is bolted front and back . There is a further fitting at the back mudguard bolt . Inside the pannier I made two toggle bar bolts that fix to bolts that hold the mudguard on . These I made out of stainless hex steel bar that are also drilled and tapped for the toggle bolts . Two toggle bar bolts in each pannier that removes them . Ill try and get a photo .

These are the best I can get you can see the two inner toggle bolts . The bracket goes down the back and under the panniers looped over the bottom stay . The bracket comes off with the panniers stays bolted to them . The two toggle bolts stay connected to the panniers and brackets . Very little can be seen when fitted and they take a minute to take the pair off .

Once you have got past the usual niggles, it will be interesting to hear your views on how you like riding the Square Four in comparison with the Gold Star.
