Ok, so I borrowed my brothers seatpost mount rack to try out on my commute. I've been thinking of buying one but wanted to give it a try first.
I lean into a turn and bam I slide out skidding into the sidewalk. It was wet out from rain the night before, but not standing water. I didn't lean more then I have before on that turn and wasn't going too fast, but fast.
It seemed like the extra weight on the back of the bike caused it to slip out from under me as leaned. I thought more weight on the back tire would give me better traction. Maybe it was weter than I thought and the rack has nothing to do w/ it.
Has anybody else experienced this?
It sure was nice to have a dry back when I git to work though. That's one of the main things I like about weekend rides, no backpack.
