Rear rack weight comparison
Does anyone have information or can you direct me to some weight comparisons for rear racks?
I'm planning to purchase a new Specialized Sequoia and want some type of light weight rear rack. I have a Blackburn Expedition rack on my touring bike that I could swap for loaded tours, so I'm mainly looking for light to moderate loads like a trunk or small panniers. I've considered the seat post options but other than Zefal I don't think there is much weight reduction over a fixed. Plus the suspension seatpost may cause some problems.
Thanks - the snow pack is shrinking in Wisconsin!
