Was hoping someone would take a look at my rigging job here and tell me this will do any damage. I'm wanting to put a trunk on my bike, but it's simply a road bike with no braze on's. It does have eyelets on the drop outs so I had to rig how it hooked up at the front. I used a piece of rubber hose that is about 1/8 inch think around the carbon seatpost and then a piece of preferated metal strapping to connect to the rack. I'm mainly concerned as I've heard from manufacturers that a clamp on rack is dangerous with a carbon seatpost, but I've heard that on this type of rack there isn't much weight on the front part that connects to the seat stays. Here's a picture.
