How to Attach a Bicycle Pannier?

Comment attacher une sacoche de vélo ?

When cycling, the bicycle pannier is an essential accessory for safely transporting our personal belongings. However, properly attaching a bicycle pannier can sometimes be challenging. Here are various solutions to attach our bag and fully enjoy our bike excursions.

Several methods for a bicycle pannier

To fix a bicycle pannier, whether at the front or rear of the bike, several systems exist. They can be fixed or removable. It all depends on whether we want to attach the pannier to the handlebars, the luggage rack, the saddle… One of the oldest methods to attach a bicycle pannier is to use hooks and straps. We attach the hooks to the rear luggage rack of the bike and then adjust the straps to securely hold the pannier in place. Easy to install, this solution is nevertheless not very stable on rough terrains, and there is a risk of the pannier swinging when not properly fixed. Not aesthetically pleasing, this system may damage your beautiful bag, which is not really designed to be held this way.

The FARET plate

Maison FARET innovates with its “FARET” plate. This leather centerpiece, present on all models, allows attaching the bicycle pannier to several elements of the bike. The trick lies in the subtle notches that allow straps to slide in. The pannier can thus be attached according to the cyclist’s preference.
