- 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.
