So far, we are travelling with panniers - 2 on the back-rack; each is about 5 kg. Plus a backpack for water and snacks. We do asphalt and xcountry 50-50
I do not like the way the bike behaves with this load: it is wobbly at low speed, it likes to rear in steep places.
Now I do consider to use a trailer instead.
what are your experiences? Do you prefer panniers or a trailer and why?
I am considering a topeak journey tx because it does seem to offer a good price/quality ratio for our shopping. Anybody else using that trailer? any optinions regarding this one?
I have thru-axles , 27.5" tyres and the trailer must cater to that without me fiddling too much.
All opinions welcome.
