About Pannier Racks
Bicycle racks give your bike versatility, it means you can go shopping, commute to work with a change of clothes, or go touring. It's safer and more comfortable to carry weight on the bike, rather than in a backpack. It keeps the centre of gravity low down and means less weight on your hands and bum. A good quality rack will support either a rack pack or, for larger loads, a pair of panniers. Racks which fit directly onto the frame are best, but for full suspension models, seat post mounted racks are also very effective. Disc brakes are also no longer a problem, with more and more brands making disc specific bicycle racks.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
So to answer your question, yes this should fit fine on most 29" wheel mountain bikes as the rack has plenty of clearance over the wheel, even with a mudguard - Just fitted one of these onto my Orbea AOS 700c urban bike with fat 35mm tires the other day so I know this from direct experience.
Be aware though you may have fitting issues if you have disc brakes or no mounting points.
See here for more info about wheel sizes and the confusion regarding the term 29" wheel.

The new improved COSMO is our top of the line stainless steel rear carrier. It now comes with wider and longer top space and protected rear light position! The back hooks of panniers are secured against sliding. The new COSMO has a maximum load of 40 kilos.
Can someone confirm if this newer version or the older one.
Source: I just received mine in the mail.
Yes they are indeed compatible.
Both panniers will fit most racks. QL2 is just easier to adjust, QL1 requires tools. Also QL2 is compatible with the optional (but not a serious security deterrent) anti-theft cable.
I now have to find a way of attaching it, which means I will have to source some longer mounting bolt and spacers to widen the rack to get around the stay tubes. I wish this rack came with longer bolts such as 20-22mm, as well as wider spacers to fit it. Annoying having to source my own.
The quick answer is most standard fitting panniers will fit. My personal preference is Ortlieb, although Carradice would also fit.
Do you have a specific pannier in mind?
I believe the Carradice Super C fit all regular racks, including the Tubus. Just out of interest.... why would you want to fit to the lower rung - is it for lowering the centre of gravity? Or are you concerned the panniers would interfere with a rack bag?
I have used the top rung of a rack like this and had a dry bag on top of the rack. It all fitted together nicely.
