Poor finish and fitting challenging

On delivery the paint around one of the welds was flaking perhaps due to poor preparation. I applied some self etching primer and top coat. The biggest issue was assembly. I too had to file down the cam lock and stays, repainting all items due to assembly scratches and file marks. The rack does not quite sit central to the bike as adjustment was hampered by the frame locking which would require even more work easing the stays and cam lock - I had enough! I thought Blackburn made a good product; not any more. Should have returned it but I too wanted it for a holiday.

Big problem with fitting.

Overall this is excellent quality. Unfortunately it took a lot longer than anticipated to fit it. I spent about half an hour trying to get one of the extenders through the cam lock, causing scratches in the process. When I eventually managed it the cam lock was so tight that there was no movement to adjust it. I had to take it apart and file the inside of the cam lock down considerably for it to work. If I hadn't needed it desperately for using on holiday I would have returned it.
