How can I secure my Velobin to my bicycle?
- Use a cable lock through the Velobin™ handle to your pannier rack or bicycle frame.
- Use a mesh lock (e.g. PacSafe) to lock the entire Velobin™ to your bicycle.
- Use cable ties (especially metal cable ties) to permanently fix your Velobin™ to your pannier rack. This offers good security, especially when used with lockable Velobins.
How tough are Velobins?
Are Velobins the same as BikeBins?
Sam Lowings invented the BikeBin in 2008. Velobin™ is the new name for BikeBin, and they have all the same parts. The biggest difference is the new plastic polymer used in the Velobin™ is even tougher and more resistant to impact and UV.
How waterproof are Velobins?
Even the best quality fabric panniers will leak eventually, but Velobins will never leak.
On fabric panniers, seams wear out, cracks develop in the waterproofing, and water will get in. Velobins will never tear or split, and are so waterproof you can carry water inside them. Your electronics and sleeping bag are safe and dry!
Do Velobins rattle?
Can I put stickers on a Velobin™?
