    Rear rack for 24inch wheels?

    I would like to get a rack for my bicycle, but all of the ones I have found only fit 26+.

    Where can I go to find a non-expensive rear bicycle rack to fit my bike? Or is there a way to adjust a larger rack?

    Nothing will prevent you from fitting a standard 26" or 700c rack onto a 24-inch wheel. If you use a rack made for a 26" wheel, there will be an extra 10-15 mm between the rack and the fender.

    P.S. That's about 3/8 to 1/2 inch for the metrically challenged.

    Thank you, that makes my shopping much easier. For the past couple weeks I have had a ragtag milk crate setup to hold my stuff while I bike, and it will be nice to have a real rack.

    Try the Delta MegaRack Universal. It has height adjustment and it's a good rack for a good price. There's also enough room for a little hacksaw surgery to make it lower.
