This rack has been very good...stable and sturdy.
deprotinator
This rack is far enough back from the rear axle that it keeps my panniers from hitting my heels while cycling.
F. Weller
If you want a rack and don't have proper mounting holes, this is one of only a few options.

Color Name: Black
This is Axiom's version of a standard Taiwanese rack. The rack itself is sturdy, and reasonably light for commuting. It is made of CroMoly tubing, and painted black. It is reasonably well triangulated, and therefore strong -- but only up to a point.

This rack is long. This model features a great deal of additional setback. Riders with large feet will be unlikely to experience heel-strike with this rack. It has a bracket for a standard bolt-on tail light, such as a DToplight, as every commuting rack should, but not all do. The tubing works fine with Klickfix pannier fasteners. It will probably work fine with coated hooks, too. It has a pump peg, which fits mini pumps only; I consider it decorative.

At about $40, I'd recommend it strongly.

Except.

The rack as only as good as its attachment to the bike. The attachments are not good.

Unlike more expensive Tubus Fly -- its likely model -- the Axiom attaches to the brake bridge not with a tube, but with flat stock. The flat stock bends under load. This allows your panniers to rock forward and down.
Then there are the steel spacers, also cut from flat stock, that set the rack so far back. Any load placed on the rack pushes down on the setbacks. The setbacks are long levers, which want to pivot on the single Allen bolt that holds the rack to each dropout; and they do. The result is that, with a standard commuting load of a laptop, tools, a clean shirt, and lunch, the rack will sag. Between this and the flexible attachment at the brake bridge, the rack is seldom in adjustment for long.

The long setback has the further effect of placing the unsprung weight of your bags far back on the bike, with unfortunate effects on handling, and discouraging effects on the hills.

Color Name: Silver Verified Purchase
I bought this rack because I found myself riding my "lightweight" bike more and more, as opposed to my tourer. My lightweight, for those who care, is an '85 Trek 560. Anyway, I have size 13 feet and wanted to still be able to use panniers, and the extensions on this rack made it possible. I have absolutely no heel strike issues. The rack is held in place by the rear brake bolt and the rear wheel skewer, so it needs no eyelets (and there are none on the 560). It's not quite as rigid as it might be (the posts are bolted to the extensions at the bottom, rather than being welded together, so there is a little flex) so if you have one heavily-weighted pannier, it could shift a little. But if you have a computer in one bag and a similar-weighted set of books in the other, no problem (at least for me, and at least so far--a few weeks). You can mount a light like a PB using the holes in the rear plate.

Three things you should know, however. The top is way too narrow for a rack trunk--it's maybe 2" wide. This is a pannier rack, not a full-on touring rack. Also, it's build with over-sized tubing, so you will need clips on your panniers than can deal with that (not all can). I had to get replacements for my MEC panniers. Finally, it may be simply too tight to allow the use of fenders. No problem in my case, since my tourer has fenders and I can ride that if it's a wet day, but if you have only one bike, be aware.

But all that being said, it's solid, it's quiet, and it lets me carry all my stuff to law school every day. I couldn't ask for more.

Color Name: Black
I had this rack installed at my local bike shop in Portland OR before I moved to Germany, and it looks great and streamlined, however, having had racks on previous bikes, I miss the larger platform, which was much more functional on a day-to-day basis, for carrying things like shoes, books, cakes, etc. I got over that.

But took the bike with me cycling and camping on Lake Constance a couple weeks ago. With a 10 lb load on the back (a tent and a little more), I went over a small bump in the road- the rack dropped and stopped the back tire. The design is such that 2 screws on the top of the rack are pointed down toward the tire with a very low clearance btwn the tire and the rack. Fortunately, I have very good tires. But I nearly had a heart attack when it happened.

I tightened up the connections and the quick release on the rear tire and set off the following morning for a ride around the lake. When I dropped off a small sort-of-curb, (the Germans leave a decent lip between the bike path and the road), the back tire stopped again. With NO LOAD at all.

The design with the moveable hinge attached to the quick release and the screws pointed toward the tire is terrible. I would not recommend this rack to anyone. It's unsafe.

Awful, awful purchase. In fact my one star rating is simply because I can't give it zero. I bought this rack due to it's rating of a whopping 110 pounds, but was sadly disappointed to find out that it folds like a piece of paper under less than 30. The extensions for heel clearance sound good in theory but fail miserably in practice. If this rack has any weight the extensions will sag and leave the platform sitting on, and subsequently stopping, your rear tire. What's worse is that the extension piece can't be removed so that you can put the two posts directly onto double eyelets because of spacing issues. Furthermore, and finally, the aluminum strips or crimps at the slightest bit of pressure. For example even tightening bolts is enough to wear away metal. I could go on, but I'd rather not relive this nightmare. In sum, this rack has caused me nothing but problems and I suggest avoiding it at all costs!
