    rack for small frame

    Hi,

    Newbie question:
    I have a small frame (17") Giant Innova, and I would like to fit a rear rack. Most racks I've seen are for larger (>18") frames so they would probably require a fair amount of fiddling. Do you know of any racks that are appropriate (please, no seat post racks) for a small frame or workarounds to easily fit a larger one?

    Check this website:

    Though they show the forward mounts connected to the brake bosses, I'm pretty sure there is another option if you need it, something that clamps to the seat stays. Look at the FAQs. My LBS recently started stocking this brand.

    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!

    Just to let you know where my mind has been lately, I was expecting to see a very small girl with size 38 DD breasts!

    Mmm, that sounds a lot more interesting that what I was thinking of when posting my question.

    Blackburn MTN 1+ is for smaller frames, smaller than 19".

    The Old Man Mountain racks that attach to brake bosses will work, also there are some relatively inexpensive attachments that allow the forward attaching strips that come off of the front edge of a Blackburn-style rack to attach to a seat post.
