The Donkey Boxx pannier is a practical, low cost corrugated plastic box for your bicycle.
In the 90s, Mark Kohr of Berkeley California directed music videos for Cake (Going the Distance) and Green Day (Longview, Basket Case, When I Come Around, Good Riddance, Hitchin’ a Ride, etc). Today, he posts YouTube videos of customer testimonials for his amazingly practical Donkey Boxx bicycle boxes.
I spotted these old Bellwether panniers on the Ellen Fletcher Bike Boulevard in Palo Alto, California last week.
The rider (I want to write “Paul” but I don’t remember for sure) told me his dad bought these panniers back during the late 20th Century Bike Boom of the 1970s. It’s good to see them still in use like this.
Today, Bellwether is a brand of cycling apparel like shorts, tights, jackets and gloves.
