- I’m super happy with it! Review by Denis
The switchback and Randonneur have arrived and I’m riding with it to work daily. I’m super happy with it as it has the perfect size to commute with a Laptop, Suit and Lunch. I was looking for a pannier rack for racing bikes for weeks until I found your product. All others either do not offer enough stability or just don’t look good on a road bike. Ever since my accident a few months ago that left me with two broken vertebrae (because when I fell, I landed on my backpack), I don’t want to wear a backpack while riding a bike anymore. Your product is just perfect.

- Great Pack Review by Rev. Dr. B
A couple months ago I order the Randonneur Rack with the switchback 2.0. Just recently returned from a 3-day 200plus mile bike trip and the equipment worked wonderfully. The rack was easy to assemble and the pack was easy to slide on and off. The material was sturdy, the zippers and such seemed very well put together. If you were going for a long trip or really needed more stuff, you may want to think about a bigger pack, or perhaps even to get two. I was simply riding during the days and staying in a hotel at night, and just needed some bare necessities. Thus, this combo worked really well together. I also bought the rain cover and held it down with a 3 dollar bungee chord. It added about 12 pounds or so to the bike, of course I had it stuffed to the gills. All in all, very well satisfied with all of the Arkel products.
