Oxford Sprint luggage
on: May 19, 2013, 01:38:14 PM
I had these Oxford Sprint expandable's on a previous bike, and thought I would try them out on the CT for the Scotland trip. I reckon they look pretty good. What do ya think ?  :084:

It's difficult to see them, as the angle of the photo's not too good. Do you have any more photos?

It looks like they are close to the bike - although somehow I'm reminded of a bum bag  :431:

I think the Givi V35's will stay on my 'to buy' list instead.  :152:

I will have to get a better close up pic . As usual the overall beauty of the bike caught my eye and got more attention than the subject that I was aiming at  :164:.
They are 2x20 L, which we thought would give us enough extra ,without getting too bulky. They are snug to the bike , which should stop them from flapping like Elephant's ears  :007:
Btw, they can morph into a rucksack + 2 bumbags  :062:

Yes nice and neat and will keep you filtering!Biff
I have a similar Buffalo set but they hang badly and need extra strapping to keep them up as high as yours, they also mark the silver painted area around the grab handles...

Not a chance, they do slow the water though...
handy for cooking gear, plates etc which are not sensitive to wet.

But its the same with tank bags, SW motech included, you read all about the fab features and then somewhere in the middle it says "rain cover included",
why bother making a product from permeable material and then supplying a rain cover that blows off at 120klms. Did nobody tell them about Irish weather?
