Can you help me located a rack for a 2013 Cannondale Bad Girl 3?

Can you help me locate some racks that are compatible with a Cannondale Badgirl 3?

Any links would be appreciated.

Looks like you're gonna have to try the aftermarket, since the BadGirl 3 doesn't have rack or fender mounts...

Try these:

Weird looking geo (and the one piece handlebar and stem? seriously??), but it looks like it doesn't have the upper points (that I could see), and I couldn't see one lower, either- but the disc brake mounted inside the rear triangle will help get a rack on there.

If if has the lower holes and not the upper, you can get a seat post binder that has the eyelets and mount just about any rack that way.

Try your neighborhood bike shop? they can test fit something over your bike..

I see from googling pictures It has seat stay fittings for the upper front.

and back by the rear axle , the bonus of doing your shopping there ..

is they will help you and perhaps even install it there.

Yeah,you're def going to need to do some test fitting. At least the brake caliper is out of the way on the chainstay so a regular rack should fit.

Found this with Google:


So it shouldn't be a big issue as long as the rack is tall enough to clear the wheel and the stays can reach the upper mounts.
