    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 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!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.
