fixing point for 'bungee' on pannier

Postby Specialized Needs » Tue Sep 23, 2008 08:26 am

Hi

Hope this place is suitable for asking this type of thing...

I bought a pannier, fixed it, safely stowed away the bits I couldn't work out what they were for, then bought a bungee strap for the pannier. I now realise that one (well, two) of the bits were brackets with holes for the hook of the bungee - but I've stored the bits away so safely that I can't find them :oops:

I can best descibe them as like bits of Meccano strut with a hole to attach to the fixing point by the rear wheel, and a larger hole for the bungee hook. Not the best description, but if I could find a picture, I'd probably be able to find the part!

Anyhow ... does anyone know where I can buy such a fixing? I suppose I could contact the pannier manufacturer, but thought I'd try here first (would need an extra set for my wife's pannier, anyhow).

You could get some meccano...

Failing that, contact your LBS or search the interweb for the manufacturer, you should be able to get some from them or an authorised reseller

Thanks L-i-T

Probably right - the manufacturer or reseller is likely to be best. Think a piece of proper Meccano would probably set me back more than the worth of my bike :D

Also, do you really need the fixing points? The great thing about bungees is that you can use them pretty much anywhere....
