rear rack clearance_1.jpgrack bracket_1.jpgbike with rack_1.jpgi recently purchased a Bontrager rear rack for my Trek 8.4 DS and my LBS had a pkg with brackets which had to be used so the rack would clear the rear disc brake. I'm not completely satisfied with it because:
1. It appears that the rack is sitting too far back.
2. In my opinion the rack is sitting too close to the tire. Only 3/8 inch clearance.
I'm thinking of redesigning the bracket to raise the rack up and move it forward some.
i would appreciate any suggestions concerning what I perceive as a problem.
