Freemonster Flap Pannier contents

I am always thinking what if I need this or that happens so I end up with a boatload of stuff I carry around with me. Always a multi bike tool, tire repair kit or 2 one or two tubes, a bicycle pump, tail light, headlight, rainjacket, rubber gloves, pad of paper pen some spare change. Then stuff seems to accumulate so I end up with rags and toilet paper magazine(momentum which I subscribe to) my reader, Cable lock. I usually havnf't much room for something I may buy so I am hoping to win this to give me more space and utility. Thankyou, Tim Gross

Sewing projects

I like to take hand sewing projects with me (I commute to work on my bike) to work on when I have some free moments. This bag would be a great project bag.

Holly 155 days ago

Markus 155 days ago

The Fremont Fairy Godmother

In summer I put on my wings and guide walking tours of the Fremont neighborhood as The Fremont Fairy Godmother. I usually bike the Burk-Gilman from my abode on the north end to Fremont. This bag would be perfect for carrying my magic wand, fairy dust and the keys to the Fremont rocket, as well as, other props that I use on the tour. The rest of the year it would serve to secure this fremonster's computer and lock on my 15 mile commute to work!

C Mariahn Scarborough 155 days ago

College Bound

I could really use this for college. I would keep my iPad2 in it.

Teddi Bear 155 days ago

All Day Long!!!

I'm a classroom teacher as well as a yoga teacher and I do everything on my bike. My old threadbare one-compartment panniers are great, especially for grocery shopping, but I sure could use a professional bag like this to carry my devices, supplies and clothes without having to dig around for it all. This looks great!!!

Deanna Fitzgerald 156 days ago

Picnics, day trips and camping supplies!

If I win the Detours Fremonster Flap Pannier it will carry my work gear on my daily bike commute, but on the weekends it will be stuffed with picnic supplies, day trip, or camping supplies. I'll also be sure to get some bike tools, a patch kit and a portable pump that will have a permanent home in the bag.

Marisa 156 days ago

A little of this, a little of that (or maybe a lot)

a change of clothes for work, a five-pound box of blueberries, library books, ice cream, swim gear, chocolate from the factory outlet. . .

Ross 156 days ago


I bike to work, I bike for fun-every day a different adventure! All adventures require supplies, a book, a snack, a change of clothes or ??!
Having a smart, stylish way to transport your favorite items on your bike just make journeys better! :)

Jean Ridgway 156 days ago

A fly rod and tackle

Living in the Philadelphia suburbs has increased my love for cycling! I find myself looking for ways and places to cycle and combine it with other hobbies, like fly fishing. I found the perfect bike trail next to the Perkiomen creek, which is excellent for trout fishing. I would use the pannier to carry all the gear needed for a perfect afternoon expedition.

Detours Fremonster Flap Pannier

this would be perfect to haul my stuff in

lisa mcfarland 156 days ago

multi purpose pannier

My wife is always complaining that she doesn't the room or the pockets for a tablet or a laptop and once she finds one, it isn't waterproof. This looks if would fit the bill. She would probably use it for uniform also, since it looks roomy enough.

Patrick Bowers 156 days ago

Beng K. 157 days ago

The Things I Carried

(who can resist a literary joke?) Anyway, I'm still looking for the best way to carry a six-pack of beer without all the jostling, but perhaps more than anything, this pannier would most likely carry a little bit of everything that gets me through - books, crafting materials, writing supplies, beer, food, and tchotkes. The better question is - what won't I carry in it? Probably my cats.

Claudia 157 days ago


Need a decent panier - mine has holes! - for yoga clothes, craft beer, and market fruits. Loosing my blueberries... :)

Heidi Kuhn 157 days ago

Filled with color

Going to paint somewhere would definitely require a nice pannier like this. All my paints and brushes would fit nicely, just barely, along with a small canvas. Going to take everything to the mountains and set up shop.

Claudia campos 157 days ago

Cat in the Bag

I would carry a cat in the Detours Fremonster Flap Pannier. I would name the cat Schrodinger. Of course I wouldn't really be sure if he or she was actually in the bag until I looked. Which I would do frequently.

Ralph Hollingsworth 157 days ago


The other day I realized something- I need balloons! Oh yeah! Carrying balloons and a small bottle of helium is the way to go. I'd keep the little weight in the pannier with the strings leading to the outside. Yes! Of course I'd have to keep a picnic blanket in there with me along with some sandwiches and a small sweater, but BALLOONS! are my new favorite thing. They're going everywhere... Maybe I'll haul around a birthday cake too.

Jess Lopez 157 days ago

change of clothes

Just the right size for keeping my change of clothes dry and neat while I bike it to work.

My Detour (bike) carries Detours bags

There are holes in my Detours dear contest oh contest. There are holes in my Detours they've carried so much. With what shall I fill them? Let's list all the stuff now. There's lunches and dinners. Clothing for kayaking. Bottles of Zinfandel, Chardonnay too.

Nina Sabghir 157 days ago

Detours carries fun

I have absolutely worn out an older Detours bag. What do I carry? Food for several meals since I work 2 jobs. Library books. Changes of clothing especially if I go kayaking after work. My lock. My collapsing cane. Bottles of wine. Ultimately the bag carries fun.

Nina Sabghir 157 days ago

I've got some toting to do.

I was eyeing this bag at a shop recently. It'll hold all the neighbourhood cats I plan to "borrow"...um, or rather, all the stuffs that needs schlepping on my bicycle: books, food, life's bits and bobs, and a singular banana.

There are so many lovely reasons to ride, this being one of them. A great carry-all.

Queenie 157 days ago

New pannier in order

My poor old pannier has seen so many years of being stuffed and rained upon...and it has NO carrying strap. Time to retire it and get a new one! I always carry raingear, lock, small tool set, paper, pen, small first aid kit, bungees. Often add change of clothes, books, veggies from garden etc.

Pat Arbour-Reily 157 days ago

All kindza stuff

Mike 157 days ago


Monster indeed- this pannier looks like a beast. This would be a great carryall for trips with my daughter. The bike trailer just doesn't cut it sometimes; it is difficult to go inside a store or home and leave the trailer full of pinchable goodies. Pannier pour moi s'il vous plait.

Guy 157 days ago

Pannier Pour Moi!

Work Gear (and groceries)

I've been a fan of Detours for a while now, and the design of this bag is just great (especially the U-lock pocket). I'd love to use it as a work bag as I bike across town to various meetings on pedestrian safety, and maybe to grab some groceries on the way home.

Since I am retired, the things I could carry in the Detour Fremonster Flap Pannier are without end.

Win a Detours Fremonster Flap Pannier

would love to win this - it would be so perfect to tote stuff on my bike

lisa mcfarland 159 days ago

In all likelihood, groceries

I'd like to think this workaday pack would satisfy all of my commuting needs but I have no idea considering I've never heard of the company and, aside from seeing an array of zipper pulls protruding from the sides of the main flap, haven't a clue as to how the storage is laid out. At the very least, it appears to be fairly robust in appearance and I can always cram some volume of groceries in just about any bag so it's entirely possible that will be it's main duty: grocery hauling.

Pete Wallace 159 days ago

Work and play stuff

I would mostly be carrying my laptop, and notebook, but after hours we'd be hauling towels to the pool, and more.

All I can imagine...

...and it doesn't really matter would be in that lovely bag, it would look phantastic! I would carry veggies from the farmers market, to a picnic for the park, or a note book & ipad for the next bike club meeting. Eventually a six pack of beer!

Oh, how I'd love to have a fashionable pannier...

Ahhh I love my sporty panniers but sometimes, when I'm wearing that cute outfit, the pannier just doesn't go with the outfit! I'd love to take this out on the town with a cardigan for when it gets cooler, maybe a local craft beer or two to enjoy with friends and some beach picnic snacks. Perhaps it would fit my Ukulele!

No more backpack sweat marks!

It would hold my laptop, nalgenes, and a change of clothes for commuting to and fro! It would eliminate the sweat marks and strains from backpack lugging in the downtown phoenix heat! Great for BYOB restaurant bike trips as well.

The World

Not quite, but I will carry all sorts of wonderful things! My bicycle takes me everywhere I go; last week I traveled out for a nice country ride to deliver a pair of used cowboy boots - they made the journey in my backpack, but would have done splendidly in a pannier. Found objects such as geodes and foraged forest food seem to always travel home with me. Fresh produce from the farmers' market, library books, bike parts, dog treats, perfectly positioned milkshakes from Bloomington's Chocolate Moose (no spilling allowed) - it all comes and goes, somehow.

Momentum Mag Contents Blog Pannier Contest

I am a bike commuter in Las Vegas, NV, where the temperatures now routinely hit 100 degrees and higher during the summer months. Let's just say that's mighty toasty conditions to be cycling in to and from work, with these temperatures producing a mighty sweat. I need this pannier in the worst way to transport fresh pairs of underwear to use at work because not only would you make this bicycle commuter very happy with this gorgeous pannier you would also make hundreds of his co-workers quite happy as well since the aroma of sweaty underwear would no longer be in the air in the building.

If I had this pannier, I'd use it to haul my textbooks around campus and for my groceries, gym clothes and beach gear.

Farmer's market

Thursday's and Saturday's is our local farmers market. It's 4.2km one way so it's great exercise for me and the kids. This bag would be perfect!

Visiting Fremont with my Fremonster

I'd tote around my clothes, sunscreen, snacks, some bottles of body paint and paintbrushes in this pannier on my weekend trips to Seattle for the Summer Solstice Ride (which is so much fun!), the Body Pride Ride (also a blast), and the World Naked Bike Ride (also fun).
