    Are there no provisions for attaching a rear rack to the seat stays near the rear brake on that BMC frame?

    Looks like a really nice ride!

    It has no seatstay rack bosses. The most it will ever carry is that Carradice saddlebag, and for that I use a saddle-mounted (Bagman) support.

    I know I was just asking about it if I were to consider that frame for a commuter bike. But I'd probably have to pass if there are no rack mounting provisions.

    P-clamps would work.

    Personally, I wouldn't want a rack/panniers on it. For a dedicated commuter, I'd opt for something from SOMA, Surly, etc. The BMC rides beautifully unloaded.

    How about a seat post clamp to mount rack.

    I agree, but Tubus Stay Mounting Clamps (link) + Carradice = win.

    Hmmm, Tubus Stay Mounting Clamps = prettier P-clamps.

    What's a "Gary Trucker"? Is that Surly's new variant of the Long Haul Trucker, where instead of cantis or discs, it's stopped by a guy named Gary?

    This is my "commuting" ride. But it's also my only vehicle at all. So commuting, shopping, errands, touring.

    I think the bike shop did that so they wouldn't scare off any potential Lonh Haul customers.
