    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.

    There's always this option for frames w/o rack bosses:

    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.

    This is my "new" utility bike build with continental top contact winter II 26 x 1.9 tires. It's a 1992 Bridgestone BB-1 that I build up from a frame using mainly vintage parts (except for the tektro 720 cantis):

    Are "Jim Blackburn" racks different than just regular ol "Blackburn" racks? Or does Blackburn only make pumps?

    Mr. Blackburn is no longer associated with the products that bear his name. The racks used to be made in the USA and were among the first products sold by Specialized (maybe before it was Specialized). The Blackburn Design name and company are now part of Bell Sports, and the racks are manufactured overseas, either Taiwan or China (whichever is cheaper)
