Looking for a rear rack

I'm looking for a particular rear rack for my Cannondale but I can't for the life of me remember the brand name or model. It was aluminum or stainless and was one of the more expensive. I thought I saw it on a Civia bike but no luck so far. I'm sure those descriptions identify several different racks but I was hoping someone can help.

Maybe a Tubus or Old Man Mountain?

Tubus sounds likely to me. Rivendell (www.rivbike.com) carries a bunch of high-end racks, and i think I saw some on the Velo Orange site. In the $40 range, I've carried a crapload of stuff on my Blackburn for at least a dozen years with no problems, and you can find those in thrift shops for about five bucks.

Civia lists several interesting racks on their site:

I use the Tubus Cosmo. Stainless-steel, dual siderails, mount for my dyno-powered taillight. Good stuff all around.

I found it, I found it. It is a Nitto brand. I haven't decided on a model yet.

Thanks for the help.
