    Rear rack, no brazons

    I guess I didnt think this out fully. I am riding a bike without any sort of mounts for a rack, and I need to be able to get some-sort of rack on there to carry panniers. I know I can go with a seat mounted rack, but is this going to be ok with the panniers?

    Have you already bought the panniers? A large saddle bag with a ViVa support brace might be a good option. http://www.velo-orange.com/bapaandba.html

    Yeah, Unfortunately, I did buy the panniers, so I would like to try to find a solution around them.

    If your seat stays are long enough, you might be able to use rubberized metal electrical clamps top and bottom. Or just use them at the top and drill holes in the upper part of your track ends (if they're big enough) and attach the bottom part with bolts and nylon-ringed locknuts.

    My rack came with rubber clamps similar to the ones above. For heavier loads, you might want something a little beefier. Also, seems like REI sold extra clamps loose, although they weren't real cheap.

    Scroll down to seat stay mounts, looks similar to supervillians picture but stronger looking. I would add some electrical tape or thin rubber between the stays though to avoid the metals rubbing.

    ^^^ Just make sure to use a rubber shim, a piece of innertube or something with those if you care about your paintjob.

    That QR adapter is pretty neat. I wonder if you can retrofit it for use with a bolt-on hub.

    I use the a Tubus Logo and the Tubus mounting kit on a bike with no mounts at all. I had to drill out the mount that usually takes a skewer to fit a solid axle, but it's been rock solid.

    Wayne at The Touring Store has both the best prices and simply fantastic customer service on Tubus products. Give him a call; he's very helpful and knowledgeable.

    I agree with this. I've ordered a rack and some adapters from him and he is great to work with. His outright pricing isn't the cheapest i've seen, but since he doesn't charge shipping, it ends up being the cheapest. Plus, he sends caramel candy with the rack. I'm a sucker for stuff like that.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    I guess my next question would be: will the quick release go on my DA 7710?

    The rack that Ziemas posted looks great. Seems structurally sound; well built; easy to mount.

    Damn it, why aren't there good fenders with a similar mounting using that axle and seatstay clamp system?

    The frame I put the rack on has absolutely no braze-ons, or even a chainstay bridge. I was able to put the full coverage clip-on Planet Bike fenders on it. They, like the rack, are rock solid.

    You need to drill out the mounting piece to accommodate a track axle. It's no problem to do so.
