    I stopped using Ortliebs when I started traveling light. They're fantastic bags, but heavy. A set of Ortlieb front bags is just shy of 4 pounds, the rack is probably another pound. That's five...

    That rear rack looks like it has a lot of parts/material. The bottom mounting mechanism looks unnecessarily complex.

    The Tubus titanium racks are much more elegant, and probably stronger.

    That bridge is right in my neighborhood. Bikes can go over it, but I'd only suggest doing it outside of rush hour. Rowena to Glendale is a good alternate. You could also try going up Griffith Park...
