    BMX that can accept a pannier rack?

    I'm looking for a BMX bike frame (preferably 29", just a personal preference, but not a necessity) that can accept a rear pannier rack for my commute to school. It just needs the bolt-holes on the rear dropouts, I can jury rig the horizontal supports really well. It is going to be for winter use, so I decided to just build my own with the best components I could buy and save some on the frame (plus I can get a rigid front fork). The guys at my local bike co-op are going to help.

    I would prefer aluminum for corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance, I need to be able to leave it out in the winter weather while in classes.

    Thanks for any advice you can give me, and I know keeping this bike in good shape will be a task, but it's one I'm willing to take on for winter riding.

    You're not going to find a BMX bike with 29" wheels. The biggest you'll find is 24", or maybe one that can accommodate a 26".

    Try a SE big ripper
    Aluminum Frame and 29 inch wheels
    You can buy one for 600.00 new and add your rack to it.
