Since I'm not buying a tubular frame rack, I'm concerned that my ortlieb shopper panniers and their QL 2.1 connections simply won't be secure with it, and I'll be investing in new waterproof panniers or a trunk bag to haul my junk to and from the office.
Ok, best of luck with the Pletscher. You are right, there appears to be a back order of a few months on the silver Tortec. The shipping cost can also be a problem, however if you end up having to buy new panniers for the Pletscher, that may negate the cost savings. Madpogue is probably correct - I bet someone in C&V will know if the Ortliebs will work on that rack.
