for commuting, randonneuring, and touring

Philly-based Laplander makes these classic style panniers. While similar to Brooks' Brick Lane Roll-Up Panniers, Laplander's (more affordable version) are handmade in Philly from sturdy 14 oz. cotton duck canvas fabric with nice attention to details (check out the fabric on the black version for the inside posket!)... for sale at their Etsy store!
Stumbled upon them in Whole Living magazine (formally 'body+soul') who were included in the featured article... 'How to Ride a (Grown-Up) Bike: to Work, with Kids, and More'

flat pack bike basket @ ICFF

MIO, the Philly-based design company headed by brothers Isaac and Jaime Salm launched a new eye-catching product yesterday at ICFF combining their love of cycling and the ingenuity of perforated metal... the 'Pop-Up Bicycle Basket' is composed primarily of a single flat pack lazer-cut powder-coated sheet of steel which is easily transformed into a surprisingly sturdy front (or rear) basket. Expect to see it up on their website and for sale shortly... in the meantime you can check out MIO's booth at ICFF at the Javits Center - open to the trade through Monday and to the public on Tuesday, May 18th.

Isaac and Jaime, thanks for stopping by the Model Citizens opening last night!
