    Need Heavy Duty Panniers .....

    A friend is building me a custom eBike from a Yuba Sweet Curry .... I need extra heavy duty panniers that will carry at least 50 pounds each. Any suggestions ... ?

    I have Topeak DryBag panniers on all five of my ebikes. I have had zero problems over several thousand miles, although I have custom aluminum boxes in them.

    The Yuba Sweet Curry Cargo Bike is rated at 300 pounds rear cargo load. The guy who is customizing the bike for me decided to rebuild the wheel with a straight-lace pattern and heavy-duty spokes, in order to strengthen the wheel. The batteries (4 of them … LiFePo4, each weighing 20 pounds !!!) and the battery box will weigh around 90+ pounds !!!
    How water proof are they? Need to get panniers soon.

    This is the final Battery Box (had to redesign several times, because originally I was going to have only one battery, then, two, then three, and finally four, which will give me a range of around 120 miles without any pedaling.

    I would also hope this bike has a heluva stout rear wheel and axle. I'd also love to see one of these style bikes with Bafang Ultra motor.
