    I'm looking to add capacity to my daily cruiser. I've seen some front mounted panniers. I don't like the look personally but aside from going to larger rear panniers and toppling over backwards how can I improve storage?
    Anybody ever use them? Any body have any other storage ideas?

    I kinda like the look of front one, and they can be mounted lower. But I have no idea how they affect handling.

    i personally prefer rear panniers. you can carry heaver loads, it doesn't effect your steering/handling as much & most importantly when i hit the brakes it helps to keep the rear wheel on the ground and improves the braking
