    Giant Expressway Rack?

    I've been trying to find a rack for my Giant Expressway. Tried my LBS, Giant USA and the internet to no avail. Why are Giant replacement parts so proprietary that they can't be found? Looks like I may have to find a frame builder to fabricate one unless someone has an idea of how I can mod some other rack. I want one to fit the mounting lugs already on the seat stays not one that attaches to the seat post or the wheel QR. All suggestions are welcomed.

    What about the 20" Pletscher Athlete 4B? See: (scroll about half-way down the page)

    I like that rack. I'll have to call Thor and talk to him about it.

    Thanks
