    racks

    hello, i'm wondering what is a good brand and good size for a rack? i'm using the bike for school as well. i sometimes have to carry a lot to school- but there's also a inter campus shuttle. so my commute to school on days with a lot of stuff would be 1.5-2 miles. anyway, any help is appreciated.

    Delta racks are good and cheap.

    +1 for the Delta.

    The only thing I don't like about mine is that it doesn't have the extra loop of tubing extending towards the lower rear, but it holds 50 lbs+ of groceries.

    If I see one of the touring type racks, I'll get it to replace it, but the Delta's been good for me.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    You could look at the Topeak racks as well if their panniers fit your needs. The MTX system is pretty easy to attach/detach.

    The strut coming straight down from the back of the rack stops the rear of the pannier from swinging into the spokes when doing sudden manoeuvres.
