Carl, the panniers look great. I have a few questions. Is the gauge of the aluminum Robust .125" (3.175mm) thickness on all sides or just the mounting surface? Can you explain how the puck mounting hardware works? Do I need to have a wrench to remove the panniers? Do you have any photos of the aluminum panniers mounted from the back and front to get an idea of bike width and look? Close up shots of the welds? What is the width of the lip for the lid seal? Trying to figure out what the actual maximum width of the case is? Is the tether connected with stainless hardware? Cost to buy a complete system: heavy duty rack ($250?), puck system ($60), and panniers ($495)?
