I knew Cubans made cigars, but not panniers.

Cuben fibre, it's a light v strong material originally developed for racing yachts. It's bees knees stuff in the MYOG world. The point of the bike is that I was getting frustrated that touring bikes generally aren't lighter than say 12-13Kg, and annoyed that so much is invested in racing bike technology, which is er wasted on racers, and just hand me downs get used in trekking bikes. So I set out to make a sub 9kg bike which had a bike rack, proper lighting, and good brakes for a load in the mountains. Still not quite reached the goal, was wondering if the magura rt8tt hydraulic racing brakes would fit onto the frame?
