Set-up & Mounting Your Classic Garment Pannier


Rack Mounting Set-Up 

When you first receive your new pannier, take a minute to set it up properly for your rack. Follow the steps below to get a proper fit. Remember that the bag mounts with the reflective pattern facing to the back.

  1. Determine the best position for Vario Mounting Hooks, Lower Catch, and Center Lock for your rack

Set the pannier on your rack with the bag's reflective pattern facing to the back. Mount one side at a time to find the best positioning for the rack components.

    1. Slide Lower Catch (x2) to hook around the most functional rack side bar 

    The lower catch will slide all the way down on the track and should be tightened at the screw after finding the correct position in behind one of the side rails. The catch can be reversed if necessary to work with an alternate side rail.

      1. Check Vario Mounting Hooks

      Check Vario mounting hooks (x4) for proper fit with rack tube diameter. Hooks can be adjusted to fit 6 -16 mm rack thickness. The hooks should be tightened to the point where the mounting hooks make a “click” when snapped down on your rack.

      1. Make adjustments to Vario Mounting Hooks (x4) and tighten screw on Lower Catch (x2) to lock stationary

      Adjust all mounting hardware using a standard philips (+) screwdriver.

        Mounting Steps  

        1. With the reflective pattern facing the back, position the lower catch to hook around the side rails of your bike rack (on both sides)

        Slide the bottom in first and then follow down with the Vario Mounting Hooks.

          1. Snap mounting hooks down so they make a “click” on to the bike rack

          Components should fit snug and stay tight down on the rack.

            1. Engage center lock (reach in through the back)

            Turn center lock so it hooks underneath the main rack bar. This ensures the pannier stays locked on the rack and can not pop off.

            1. Ensure the pannier is securely mounted

            Both sides should sit flat. Both lower catches should be tightly hooked around the side rails. The mounting hooks should be completely snapped down and the center locks engaged.
