Well, the framebuilder I was thinking of was on vacation until
into July. So, I went ahead and bought an Axiom Odysee rack.
The idea being, to see how well the bike handled with
weight on the rear. And to start riding it to work.
But it works awful on my roadbike!!!!
See the pictures:
Just look at how high the center of gravity is!
It's definitely a rack for mountain bikes.
It is well made. Light. Good tig welding. The area for
the pannier hooks is just the right distance down.
Too bad they didn't make it for a road bike.
You would figure that they would put pictures on
their website of the rack mounted on different bikes.
But, it's just nice pictures of the racks on a
seamless background. You only do that to admire it.
Couldn't find it in silver either.
That black would be scratched in no time.
BTW, I tried to find p clamps too. But the stay is
so narrow, that nothing fits tight.
What an incredible waste of my time. To save how much
weight of an eyelet????
