I have a '05 LeMond Sarthe that I am going to start to commute to work on in the fall. I need a rear rack to attach my panniers to. My bike does not have the eyelets (I'm sure there is a technical term) for me to attach a rack to. I thought I found a rack (Topeak) that would work which attaches to the seat post. However, the instructions say that it is not designed nor recommended to be used with a carbon fiber seat post. Does anyone know of a rack that I can/should use?
Of course, I live in the rainy PNW - so fenders are the next item to add after a rack. So, if you know if the rack is compatible with fenders, that would be terrific!
