So Im planning on doing some extensive touring this summer. I will be primarily rear loaded, so Im looking for a really solid rear rack. Anyone have any suggestions? I have an '05 Bianchi Eros.

I have a Tubus Logo which I like. The Tubus Gargo is a popular choice. Other well-regarded racks come from Bruce Gordon, Jandd, Blackburn, etc. There are quite a few.

The Eros is a light-touring frame, better suited to hostel or ultra-light camping loads. Given that the frame will not deal with heavy loads, you dont need an expedition grade rack. Any decent rack will do. The Blackburn style of fully traingulated Al is solid. Tubus are excellent.

I have a tubus rack on my lemond road bike I toured on, really solid.
