Cannondale: The Pannier for "Suits"

Lets face it, when it comes to commuting, panniers are not a good substitute for a briefcase, and when it comes fitting the bike, a brief case is no substitute for panniers. Cannondale must be God because their new pannier is an answer to the corporate cyclecommuter's prayer.

From the handle on top, to the black fabric and the fold-away Rixen-Kaul clip system, it has a style that merges the funkiness of a classic gladstone bag with a pannier and a briefcase in a stylish whole greater than the parts. It will carry a 14" laptop, but don't go rock hopping with such a precious cargo, it's for work, not play, stick to the smooth paths and arrive fresh. I think this could actually make me switch from my aging Mountain Designs courier bag!
