Nitto has a decent Mini rack , and for the next level of stuff hauling wings to attach to it to make a wider Porteur type rack .
Paul's Components makes a decent porteur rack of 1/2" aluminum, and machined parts ..
I have one , Its OK, [20# loads reccomendation given] though using round stock for the struts it could be improved If the round struts didn't rotate in the socket .
I'm thinking of loc-titing the 2 together red or so type , trying to keep the stronger bonds stuff out of the threaded portion is the trick , Doesn't need a overkill thread lock for the bolt, just bonding the rod in the socket [until the whole thing is heated up with a Heat gun].
I have my rack on a 622 - 32 tired bike.. plenty of clearance.
3rd mount is to the fork steerer tube, with 2 shims for 7/8", 1 for 1.0"and none for 9/8".
