Pannier boss

Repairs and alterations

  • This Ridgeback tourer had its fork modified to take a disc brake - the mount was brazed on to the front of the fork to counteract the forces from braking
  • The boss was brazed on to the rear seat stay to enable the pannier leg to clear the disc brake and to give sufficient strength to the pannier rack
