4/3     Need some advice from tom or tom-clones.  I'm actually using my
        mountain bike in SF now and I bought some panniers but the metal
        loops that hook onto the back of the bike rack thing are so tiny as
        soon as I hit a pothole they fall off the bike.  What's a good one to
        get that has long loops so they won't fall off the bike? I don't know
        why this is so hard, in Europe the loops are about 2-3 inches long
        and much bigger so there is never an issue -eric
        \_ Generally panniers have some sort of elastic cord which attaches
           to the bottom of the rack and keeps them in place.  Yours don't
           have anything like that?  -tom
           \_ I was wondering how that worked -- thx tom very helpful -eric
              \_ losing weight helps too.
                 \_ Um, what? When they are empty they are most likely to
                    come off.
                    \_ oh, nevermind. I thought it was a case of the
                       thing (pannier) being too heavy hence they fall
                       off. Then again, I have no idea what a pannier is.
                       I hate bikers, and I hate the SF Mass Chaos, it's
                       making SF as unpleasant as LA to live in.
                       \_ Move.  Everyone will be happier.
                       \_ It is only once a month, how could it have that much
                          effect?

        \_ You can get a bike that cheap off of Craig's list but you will
           need to do some work on it before it will be safe. I bought a
