convertible pannier etsy picks

This shop has some very nice panniers, but I really love these convertible bags.Suited for riding in all weather with a waterproof liner and an extended roll-top closure, this bag offers front and side pockets for securing small items close at hand, water bottles or your bike lock as well as a large interior pocket with internal organizer. Not only does it secure to your bike rack as a pannier, once you reach your destination, or the train, you just pull out the straps, convert to a backpack and take it with you. ($225.00)

This bike rack, made form reclaimed wood, is designed to hold all types of bikes and still look good when the bike is away. Custom requests are possible, so you can have a little bit of wall art that functions beautifully too. ($85.00)

When you’re done riding you bike around town, you can reach for a drink in one of these lovely pint glasses. Choice of beverage is, of course, yours. ($35.00 for 4)
