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!
Seat post racks are very heavy compared to traditional aluminum racks. Otherwise, as long as its aluminum the weights will be negligible.
Steel racks are lighter!!. Check out the Tubus Fly.
