That is an opitcal illusion. I can't see this rack dragging very often. This rack is even better than reported. It received MTB Review's Choice Award for 2003.
It should still have a perfect rating. I will help it's rating out after I test it a little more, but as of now, I am way impressed. It's funny what people downgrade a product for in a review. A couple have complained that it is heavy. Sure it is heavy, that is what you want it needs to be tough. One guy complained that it took too long to put it on. It takes about 3-5 minutes and I am new at it.
ONe guy compained that you need a wrench to put it on. Pllllllllllllllllllllllllllease! Doesn't everyone own a wrench? What does he want to mount it with Velcro? ONe guy said the support arm was loose. Mine is TIGHT so tight i can barely pull it over the front wheel. That too is what you want.
I could go on and on but I just mention it because it is interesting to read the couple of negative posts on anything when it conflicts with everyone else. A product normally has a high rating because it is good.
