R U thinking of a rear rack?(review)
 
Yesterday we were all hanging out, sitting on tailgates etc. when I realized what I was doing. I had my 220+ pounds sitting on my rear rack! I was told when I bought it that it was a nice tough rack that could support 40 pounds. I proved it would hold a wee bit more than 40 :eek: If you are looking for a rear rack I suggest the TOPEAK SUPER TOURIST

That 40 pound rating is based off of dynamic stress on the road under load and then reduced by 50% or more by the lawyers! Yes, that rack is a good one!:D
