How big is big enough?
Being on a budget, I'm thinking of going to DIY route for making some panniers. The question is, how big is big enough? The standards seem to be 35L and 42L. I'm sure one answer I'll get is it depends on the purpose of the bike, the length of the trip, and how much I pack. well I'd like to bike to be a long term traveler, possibly several years. And I do pack light, but I plan to camp, as hotels are a waste of money, especially with my portable Zodi shower (:. Ok, that's the only unnecesary I'll be toting, and I imagine it'll bungee onto the rear rack, with my tent and sleeping bag on the seat in front of it. Anyway, how big was big enough for you? And what are the dimentions of your panniers? Thanks a lot, safe travels.
