Rear rack for 04 Sequoia XS?
Hi all, finally put on the Blackburn EX-1 rack on my SO's bike. Problem is that the Sequoia XS frame is so small that to reach the eyelets just behind the seat tube, the rack has to tilt down at about 20-25 degrees.
The front part of the rack is now underneath the seat, and there isn't enough room for her Tail Rider. I'm also concerned about what the tilt will do with loaded panniers.
I was thinking of getting the Blackburn MTN-1 rack, maybe it would still clear the 700c wheels but fit the frame better. Anybody run into this problem? Thanks!
