    hi guys,
    any racks, bags & mudguards you can recommend or maybe want to warn buying them? maybe some pointers?

    I think about buying a "tubus fly evo" as a rack and "vaude aqua back" or "ortlieb back roller" as bags.
    Ive got no clue about which mudguards to buy...

    Any ideas? ;)

    regards Sascha

    I am, I was originally searching for a specific bike pack, but decided to stick with the trusty backpacking pack I've used for many years, the thing just wont die. For training/exploring rides, I use a top tube mounted bag to hold the essentials and my phone. I dont use fenders as whatever I do, my eyes wont let me install any... :p

    Ortleib panniers are amazing, mine have done many miles without any hassles . The Rollers are really flexible for load size.
    Tubus racks have a great reputation but the Fly Evo is only for light loads. What are you planning to carry?
    When it comes to mudguards I swear by SKS.

    i want to use it for my ride to work maybe sometimes to get something from the supermarket but nothing special.
    Until now iam riding with a backpack but after a couple of kilometers my back is soaked.
    the 20kg carrying capacity of the fly evo should be enough.
    I should scale our weekly purchase at the supermarket to get a better feeling for the possible weight.
