I have been reading the posts on this site for several days, and I am very impressed - great site! I am currently planning to start bike commuting to my place of employment, which is approximately 7 miles one way with decent hills but nice scenery. Anyway, I am slowly outfitting my bike - a 2006 specialized sirrus, and recently added fenders. However, when i began pursuing the option of adding a rack for panniers, I noticed that my fenders used the only spot (threaded hole) for adding accessories. Is there another option for using a rack? Thanks for any suggestions.
