Yes, panheads would work as well. Carriage bolts were just the first that came to mind. The main reason I suggested it is that I've seen the effects of objects rubbing on each other while bouncing around in panniers. Again, great fabrication and inspiration.

I'm still in the fine tuning stage of everything, and will probably have different ideas when I actually put them to use. This is still very much a trial and error project at this point, but I sure have learned a lot. I'm sure I will make some tweaks still.

I'm already considering a top box....hmm..........
