    Could someone describe pannier "frames" or stiffeners to me? Are they a flat "board" (would
    plastic cutting boards work), the same size as the back of the pannier? Or just strips than run
    the width of the bag where the hooks/straps attach? Are there sides of a bottom to them? And how
    is the bag attached to the frame, and the frmae to the mounting system?

    I'm toying with building a set, from surplus Musette bags, and Arkel mounting hardware (already
    ordered). I'm just looking for something to use on day trips with the family (lunch/snacks/clothes
    for 4), and something to play engineer with :).

    Thanks! DP
