The red roll of double sided 3M mounting
tape is an indoor/outdoor mounting tape. It can hold up to 50 lbs
before failing. However, it is expensive so I supplemented the
mounting of the foam with the regular 3M wall mount tape. The
regular stuff can hold up to 5 lbs. As you can tell, there is a
big difference in strength between the two mounting tapes. What
you see in the picture above is what is left after the mounting is
done. Be wary, the outdoor mounting tape is very sticky, and
works very well. It has a tendency to stay wherever you put
it. So be sure to put the tape in the right location the first
time around. It sticks too well if you ask me.
Here are the rough locations of where I put the mounting tape on the
of the pannier. The left side pannier has mounting tape applied
in a similar pattern.
