Good quality rack overall.

This is a nice rack (always like saying that!) but the stays (legs) are too short to fit my bike - a Giant Cypress DX hybrid with 700mm tires. I ordered 2 of these, one black for my daughter's 26" Schwinn, and one silver for my Giant.

The rack is very lightweight but very strong, and it looks nice on the 26" bike, but because the stays are about 1" too short, it hits the tire on the 700cm bike. The stay length is advertised as 354mm, but it's more like 348mm to the bottom of the rack - it's simply too short to fit a 700mm diameter tire.

If you have a 26" bike, I can recommend this rack without hesitation, but it's too short to clear larger tires. I gave it 5 stars because it is a very good product, just doesn't work with my bike.

I bought this rack at a local bike shop and am very happy with the purchase. It is very light and is rated to hold 40kg/88lbs. This is significantly better than what I found at Dick's which was very heavy and mounted to the seat-post, didn't hold nearly as much weight, and was more expensive. They only sell the seat-post mounted racks at Dick's, I assume because the installation can be slightly tricky for this type.

You'll notice the mounting brackets in the picture.. check to see if your bike has holes for all four screws. Mine did not, but the bike shop I went to gave me some extra hardware to properly mount this rack to my bike.

This is very beautiful. Its as light as they say, and its quite strong. The surprise is that its so good looking. Its pretty enough for the cruiser, light enough for the road bike (Giant OCR), and strong enough for the tour bike. Amazing!

I recently bought a '94 model Trek 730 from my local bike shop to commute on. I prefer my other (newer, comfy fat tires) bike, but my work has 'balked' about me bringing it inside in the last few months...so I needed a "dedicated commuter bike", that I could leave outside locked up. (no way I am locking up and leaving my $1000 fat tire jewel! I don't care how good a lock I could have bought!)

I took some black duct tape and covered all the bikes graphics, flat-black painted some Planet Bike full fenders, and then I mounted this rack. My goal was to make the bike look as "plain as possible" - dark green and flat black.

I chose this rack as the card that came with it shows 60 KG. that's a TON more carrying ability than most of the other racks I found on line or at the local shop.

The Trek is a 700cc bike - it mounted perfectly, even over the fenders I already had on there. The old Trek has braz-on's for both - separtately - so maybe that helps as I used the lower ones for the fenders and the higher ones for the Axiom Transit Rack.

Zip-tie-ing a milk crate is simple and fast (and cheap) and I don't mind burning a few zip-ties every time I want to throw the milk crate on. A Banjo Brothers market pannier fits great...and I've modded an old skateboard deck to zip tie onto this rack too. Why? because...small kids, even my wife can hop on for a ride - 60KG! that's a rack!

I love how my Trek has become a true work-horse since the rack was added. The fenders make it perfect to commute...but the rack makes it able to 'work.' So far I've not tried a full case of water bottles on it...but I've gotten that milk crate pretty full - with the pannier bag also on the rack...at least 75 pounds of groceries on this rack. No worries, no rattles, no problems.

I wanted simple, bomp-proof, and able to carry a person - even if I had to add a board for them to sit on....and I got it all with this rack. very happy with it.

Rack came a little bend. It fit ok to hybrid bike with 700 wheel.
I even used it to give ride to the kids (about 60lb).
it does not have a spring or something to hold panniers, or something to keep big rack bag, but one can put them anyway using rubbers or hooks or belts.

Installing a bike rack should only take 20 minutes but I had to spend a few hours to get this one to fit on my bike. For reference, my bike is a 58cm Jamis quest sport road bike. The first difficulty was securing the lower stays. The vertical supports on the rack are about two inches narrower than the spacing between my lower eyelets. I had no choice but to forcibly spread the metal legs to get them in place. Doing this was somewhat clumsy since I had to keep the metal legs apart, hold the rack in place and screw the bolts into the eyelets all at once. The next challenge was fastening the top of the rack to the frame. The problem here was that the rack barely cleared my brake calipers. See those two shiny flat metal rods sticking out from the top of the rack? Those are what secure the rack to the frame. I had to bend one of those metal rods with clamp and a pair of pliers to get it around my break calipers. Again, this was clumsy and probably undermined the integrity of the frame.

In the end, I managed to securely install this rack on my bike. It took a few hours, a flat head screw driver, a pair of pliers, a hex screw driver and a lot of elbow grease. The clumsy installation process resulted in a few scratches on frame but that's my fault. I would not recommend this rack to anyone. You would be much better off buying a rack that has adjustable components.
