Lets see your back rack!

Deciding if I want to put a back rack onto my new FT1.. just curious how some of your hybrids took them well? I feel like my bike looks so sleek with minimal attachments

Thanks!

Here's mine , it's an Axiom Journey.
It's very light and does the job.

When I first bought the bike figured a rack and bag would be useful



Topeak Tourist DX with Timbuk2 Hunchback

Was fine in my early days of commuting however subsequently didn't like the balance change it made and now since I do more trails than road these days (yes even commuting) it's been removed ( if you're in Tasmania can do a good rate on a used rack and bag for ya! )

Thanks!

Tried using only a handlebar bag for a while, but prefer the usefulness of a rack for my commuter. Rack is a Jandd as is the trunk bag (running rabbit).

Sorry if not welcome, but I often forget my frame bag is there...just thought maybe it would be useful if you are looking for storage options...

Rack is Super Tourist DX
Bag isTopeak Quick MTX Track,

goes with me on nearly every ride, I used to have a bag that had velcro straps, but strapping in on and taking it off all the time was a pain, the sliding mechanism with the Topeak bag and rack comes in so handy.

Here's my setup on my Trek DS 8.4
Bontrager rack and bag with one button release. This seems to be a great setup.



I got the rack and bag specifically to carry my camera.
I did add additional padding to the bottom of the bag to protect my equipment from road shocks.



I have always had racks on my bikes. They have very little downside to them and the upside is that the extend the usefulness of the bike.

Axiom Journey with some cheap Deal Extreme trunk bag.
I only install the rack for 3 hour + rides. It's only 4 hex bolts. I also prefer the slick look with minimal attachments.

Interchange system with one button release. Wish the rack was black.
