    [Oyama Rockaway] What rear rack to buy?

    Hello,

    The Oyama Rockaway seems like a good product, light and fast. And at €375, it's dirt cheap.

    However, I'd like to add a rack in the back: Anybody knows what brand/model I could use?

    Thank you.

    Well if dirt cheap is your first priority..

    I have seen this and I am thinking of buying one: http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/sl-tourne...k865-prod2044/

    If you want to use panniers (and do not care about folding size or only use the rack once in a while) a full size could be fitted, maybe you need longer stays from the rack to the seatstays on the bike http://www.sjscycles.co.uk/rack-spares-dept964_pg1/ .

    You could be lucky and find one of the Dahon racks could fit. Best is if you can find a shop that sell them or at least a Dahon 20" bike with a rack to compare with.

    It's not my priority, but it seems pretty good value for the money. Thanks for the links.

    Ideally, I'd like to get a rear rack + bag (lighter than metal panier) that is confirmed to be Dahon-compatible.

    There are several brands/models for rear racks:

    ArcLite Rack

    Dahon Tour Rear Rack

    Aluminum rear rack 20

    Bike Friday's comes off and folds flat when packing is needed.

    Any bag should work, if you pay attention to heel strike issues, any bag would have to be removed to fold.

    You may be better with a rack on the front to give a better center of mass, the added benefit is having anything you're carrying in view. There are plenty of racks designed to fit to V brake bosses and fork crown.

    Thanks for the input. I'll measure things when the bike gets here and check which rear or front rack I can use.

    Here's the basic rack I ended up getting.

    Besides what's available from Bike Friday, what bag/panier would you recommend? I'm thinking of getting a bag because they're lighter than panier made of metal.

    Thanks.
