anyone using old man mountian racks?
I just picked up my rear cold springs rack yesterday and can't seem to get it to fit right. The instrctions were pretty vauge so it took some guess work. The probelm i'm having with them is when i clamp the QR it seems to compress my cassette and disc brake caliper. Even when it is fairly loose it still does this. I tried shimming the mounts with washers to get a flater contact, but this doesnt seem to work.
The hardware the rack came with didn't include any springs for the QR, so I left them out. not sure if i need to include these. Thanks for your help.
