    Track rack?

    Hey guys,
    I'm running a Pake track frame, and I'm getting tired of my heavy backpack. Are there any options for a rear rack for this frame, since you know..no rack braze ons? It took me forever to find a backpack that was in my budget and now back back hates it.

    http://www.treefortbikes.com/product...-Road-DLX.html you may have to use P-clamps
    I don't know how your frame will work with a rack and panniers in terms of heel clearance. If you put a lot of weight on the rear it could even screw with the handling

    I'd go with a seatpost rack and a trunk bag.

    If the OPs backpack is too heavy to ride with, a seatpost rack and trunk probably won't do the trick.

    P-clamps, Seatpost clamp with rack eyeless and front/small panniers for heel clearance is what I would do/try... But I have everything already except the seatpost clamp and OPs bike to see if it would work withou spending a bunch of cash on an experiment.

    Cetma style racks are another option. Front racks take a bit of getting used to though.
