Touring rack for Tern Verge P20 (asymmetrical eyelets/bosses!)

Hello!

It's so strange for Tern to have the top eyelets/bosses for the back rack brazed on asymmetrically on my P20! They are actually about 0.5 inches offset from each other. I'm looking for a heavy-duty touring back rack so will need a mounting system that allows for such customization. Any recommendations and experience to share?

Thanks!

I know .... that thing puzzled me as well. I faintly remebered an answer from Josh, which made some sense, but forgot the reasoning ...

good news is that all Biologic carriers will fit well.... the Traveller will probably be best
as for a little mor adjustability and higher load the Pletscher Athlete 20 inch will have very nice adjustable alloy rods and adjustable height at the wheel ... would be my choice

Best Thor

Just guessing, but it might be to provide clearance for the mounting bolt heads and the tools to tighten/loosen the bolts.
