Hi pauljm...the Holan racks provide a very solid mounting system for the panniers, and are heavy duty enough (18mm tubing with 2mm wall thickness) to act as a crashbar for the rear of the bike if it decides to take a nap with the bags off. Another benefit is the interchangeability of panniers to different models of bikes, versus building a model-specific mount. If you trade bikes, just get the appropriate new rack and hang your panniers on it.
