Cyclechic's verdict

The Deluxe shopper combines 40's chic with modern day practicality. They are fantastically spacious, great for a trip to the supermarket or for work. Either go for the autumnal Cherry pine or summery Lemon Pine. The Deluxe Shopper is cycling's version of the oversized handbag.

Looks great. How does it attach the to pannier rack? Does it have hooks like the other panier bags in the shop? Thanks.

Hi ladies, thanks so much for your comments.

Fellow Caz - They are made out of pine, with a waterproof coating and the lining is a waterproof nylon.

Emma - There have three hooks on the back that slip on to the bicycles back rack. You can adjust them so it stays secure. I will have a pic of the back up soon.

Irene...thankx

I bought this bag and I love it, but I'm having trouble attaching it securely to my rack. Two of the three clips don't really hold on, they just hook over loosely, so it rattles a bit. Is there any way of adjusting them?

I have this bag - it's fab and I love it. So much better than my old one, which clipped to the front on my bike.

Lelu, You're right that two on the clip just hook over. But the middle one can easily be tightened to hold fast - simply turn the knob on top of the middle hook clockwise to tighten. When you want to remove the bag again, turn it anti-clockwise to loosen again.

There is on thing that would improve the bag - somewhere to attach a shoulder strap. I have improvised by attaching a shoulder strap to the hooks at the back when I need to carry it any distance.
