Will your side racks also accept Happy Trail teton panniers? From the pictures it appears that they might be located too close to the rider's position and a leg could get caught.
The boxes do not have to be centered on the racks. You could move them back a couple of inches. The oval loop is 13.25" long. Hope this helps. -Tom
