    Robust Pannier Rack

    Only been using the rack for a few days now. Carrying chunky laptop, lunch etc to and from work. Have tried a canal side commute as well as on the road My Altura pannier bag is a bit of a tight fit but clips on OK. No rattles or movement. Even with my limited skills I was able to fit the rack to my bike with no problems.

    Fit for Purpose

    We have Montague FIT folding bikes and had used light racks mounted on the seat tube, however for our next tour adventure we need heavier duty racks for panniers. The Axiom rack plus RSP mounts work perfectly, plus great service from Tredz

    Sturdy Product

    I purchased this item around a year ago, and since then it has had a lot of VERY heavy use. Fitting it to a Pinnacle 'Lithium 4' was entirely straightforward - with the rear brake caliper being located between chain and seat stays: I personally used my own high-tensile Allen bolts - adding 'backnuts' inboard of both fork flanges. These were retightened after a short period - as a fairly thick coat of paint on the dropouts 'crumbled' under compression to cause some initial loosening in service. The upper stays were cut exactly to length, to bear against the front of the 'forward' transverse carrier support tube: that way it would be IMMEDIATELY evident were there ANY 'slippage' within the expertly machined, competently engineered, clamp and pedestal fixtures - thereby precipitating a 'rearward rotation' of the main rack assembly under extreme loadings? Needless to report, there has been no suggestion whatever of any such tendency (unlike other inferior products I have encountered - where the fittings have sheared before sufficient clamping pressures could be generated to prevent this...)! My only criticism of this otherwise excellent, extremely robust, and 'virtually bomb-proof' rack/carrier relates to the 'rearlight bracket' - a flimsy, wobbly, flat piece of metal; secured by a single bolt (and which looks very much like 'something of an afterthought')!... This was easily overcome by the substitution of an adapted 'Cateye' saddle-bar mount (RM-1/2) - secured by drilling two 3mm holes in the 'carrier plate' at 36mm centres, 18mm outboard of the existing 5mm drilling. The alloy plate profile requires that a couple of 'packers' be placed around the bolts to the underside; to prevent the adjustable mounting bracket being placed under stress. Other than that, a few 'patches' of the black finish have duly worn away where the pannier hooks, etc., make 'rubbing contact' with the rack frame: this is inevitable with any carrier, given the severe vibration which results from running on the veritable 'seas of potholes' which serve as 'roads' around here, and is purely cosmetic. If you want to carry serious weight reliably and without drama, then look no further than this sturdy Axiom product. I also have a 'Journey Uni-Fit Mk. 3' on my hefty 48 volt electric bike - regularly carrying four 'golf cart' batteries on top of the carrier, plus heavily loaded 44 litre panniers to the sides (above a heavy-duty 48 spoke 'tandem' spec. rear wheel...) without issue: I am equally impressed with this too - and would now not consider anything other than an Axiom in such a demanding role.

    Excellent

    After suffering with other racks (Topeak) on a tourer and commuter, I was looking for something robust that can take a lot of weight without too much to adjust, rub or squeak. I have found it! This rack is awesome. Fitted in less than 5 minutes, no bending of arms required and strong. I tested by having both my son and daugher (combined 50kg weight) on the back whilst riding around. Pannier s fit well, with no chance of interfering with the wheels. Highly recommended.

    Great Rack

    Rack fits fine with my bike which has 700c wheels. Sturdy rack with attachment for rear lights. It is also light weight. Would recommend.
