I hope this is the right section to post in.
I've been riding fixed for almost three years, and I'm finally planning on going car-free. I've decided to buy a geared bike to make my commutes easier, since I'll probably be riding at least 100 miles a week.
I'd really like a bike with integrated shifters, so my top three choices are a Motobecane Mirage Sport, a Raleigh Revenio 1.0, or a Trek 1.1.
However, none of those bikes say anything about having rear rack mounts. I was planning on buying a Planet bike Eco Rack, along with a Planet Bike Escape Pod.
Here are my questions:
1.) Will the eco rack fit on those bikes even though they don't have rack mounts?
2.) Will a Planet Bike escape pod fit on an Eco Rack, or is it too small?
3.) Do you all have any experience with any of the above bikes, and which would you recommend?
Thanks a lot you all, and if I posted in the wrong section, I'm sorry.
