He bought Specialized Allez because it was shiny and new (funny how that'll happen) and we lived a little too far to commute to work and just wanted to go on long weekend rides. Now, we live closer to work making it <10 mile ride each way. That said, the boyfriend wants to add a commuter rack to carry his gigantor size 13 dress shoes and dress attire (backpack just doesn't cut it), however, his Allez Comp doesn't have a braze-on mount OR any eyelets on the frame. As the guy at REI said 'There's typically a reason that the bike manufacturer didn't put those there' and I'm trying to figure out why, or if there is anyway around it, or if a seat mount is the way to go (on a seatpost that is "Carbon wrapped alloy, two-bolt clamp, 27.2mm".....whatever the heck that means, but someone mentioned carbon getting bent)
Anyone out there have any suggestions how to get some type of rack to carry his work attire on his bike and not his back?
The girlfriend that doesn't know much about bikes
**Update** It's a 2010 Allez Comp, NOT 2011 (as the title describes). Don't think it makes much difference, but figured I'd mention.
