Thanks, Jon!

The pucks are great, the service was great, and they arrived really quickly.

Given the labor involved in producing them, I still can't believe the price!

thanks for the free upgrade!

jon,

i received the black pucks today to day to replace the white pucks i originally received.

the black pucks are definitely faster! and hence more fun!

seriously, it's nice having that extra clearance for my fingers when operating the hand nut.

the vintage limited edition white pucks are on their way back to you.

best,

darren

Ditto what everyone else is saying about these. Great price, service and make a great product even better! Brilliant! Thanks Jon.

If you have Touratech bags you really need to get these.

Thanks for all the great words... I am quite pleased that everyone feels they are a valuable addition to their Panniers .

Best regards,

Jon

Looks like I need 'em .... soon

I don't have the Touratech panniers yet - but I'm close to making a decision. Can I ask ... how does one remove the Touratech panniers? Is it such, that you open the lid, turn the knobs and remove said bag? If this is the case ... and the bags are stuffed, you gotta either move some stuff out of the bag or slide your hand in behind the stuff to turn the knob to remove the bag --- right?

Many Thanks

zw

Right... but not a problem, especially with Jon's pucks.

Are you interested in international goodwill?

I live in Canada and am interested in your pucks.

Can we make this happen?

zen whipper,

taking off the TT panniers is not a huge deal even when stuff is inside. you'd have to be packed to the brim with stuff for it to be a problem.

one thing i do is i have bungees on the inside of the lids of the panniers to hold lightweight stuff that i always have with me (first aid kit, extra gloves, wipes) so this stuff comes off the lid and there's room at the top of the box.

hope this helps.

Sure thing... I've PM'ed you.

I've sent these all around the world now. Scotland, Canada and now it looks like an order just came in from Singapore. What's funny is, I really haven't sold that many sets (under 20). Its just a diverse crowd.

I do think these pucks are worth every penny + in improving the pannier system.

btw: I put a posting about the pucks on the Touratech.de forum and they promptly removed it.
I guess they had issues.

Jon

I emailed a link to this thread to Touratech USA and they liked it.

Ahhh- creative use for the bungees and the lid! And thanks for the tips.

Jon,

After receiving my set, I also posted on the chain gang forum as they work great & I wanted to spread the word. They haven't deleted my post yet.
