Hey guys idk if this thread should be in commuting or touring but its going on a fixie so ill start here for now, im looking to make my fixie a carry all, or almost all. Well im looking for racks to put on the front and rear of my bike to carry anything from groceries to things that just wont fit in my chrome bag. So im open to all suggestions. The only thing that would be great is that the racks would have clearance for my fenders.
Thanks for any input.

What mounts do you have on your frame? If you don't know, what model is the frame?

i can't say enough about these great racks.
here's a thread on me ordering mine, and having the owner/operator drop it off at the bar i used to work at...
For sheer class, you can't go past velo-orange (http://www.velo-orange.com/racks.html)

I have a nice blackburn rear rack. in my opinion seatpost mounted racks suck
edit: They especially suck for "Carry-All" applications.
I like these if you have front lowrider mount racks on your fork (not likely on a road frame/unheard of on a track frame):
and this is what I ride with on the rear of my touring bike:
(the EX-1 is what I have)

I think a simple rack (chrome or black, depending on your bike) would work well. I got one of the Ortleib grocery bags (kind of expensive at ~ $85, but nice) for taking groceries; works pretty well, well it will once I get a rack put on my own bike.
I think the Nitto racks look nice; however they're expensive.
There's one I'm interested in checking out at the bottom of:
It's a mini-rack, but I think it will hold the bag I want to carry, and probably most anything else I'd want to put on a rack.
On the other end of the price scale, the Pletscher racks:
are supposed to be good, and are quite cheap.
CETMA front, Tubus rear. Sorted.
