    Fitting Rack on Specialized Sirrus

    I tries to fit Blackburn (Expedition II, I think) that is
    on my old MTB onto my new Specialized Sirrus.

    The eyelets by the axle are so far apart (much further than
    my MTB) I had to stretch the bottom ends of the rack more
    than an inch more than I had to on the MTB in order to reach.
    Just doesn't look like healthy thing to do, to stretch that much.

    Plus there is a slight bump just above the eyelets so it looks like
    it will need longer bolts than I have.

    Can anyone recommend some other models that will work better or
    some solution w/ the current rack?

    Thank you.

    Try a Trek Interchange rack. It's the only rack I didn't have to "bend" to make the legs space wide enough for the rear eyelets. Good looking, too.
