The current plan is to do the Southern Tier this fall with a friend. I am a recent graduate on a tight budget, and looking for a set of rear waterproof panniers that won't break the bank! Used, in somewhat good condition would be the best option (for me and the planet :)). Located in Sacramento, CA but willing to pay postage!
Not on Front Page
In case you do FB, there's a FB page of people selling used panniers. Search... Used panniers, I believe. Also, eBay.
