it appears as tho my dream of mounting a smallish NItto rear rack has hit a snag:
I smacked my head and looked down and realized...ACHT! Carbon Fiber seat stays (bike has not rear or fore rack braze-ons). Looks like cinching a Nitto seat stay clamp to fasten the rack on with might be a Bad idea on the CF (BLEAH)
I am taking order of a large Carradice saddle bag, but I'd still like a rack down the road to haul the miscellaneous commuter items, my rack trunk, or support the saddle bag (otherwise it's a Carradice bagman or QR bracket)
Can anyone chime in with their reviews/recommendations on seat post racks?
I'v heard this and that (they swing around, they loosen, the welds bust after 3 months)
Has anyone got one that has seen some use, light touring, etc. with success?
