this happened to me on my cdale xr800. it is an aluminum frame with a single set of eyelets in the rear. i now have a cdale xs800 (identical save for the headshock). i am wondering if i should be mounting another rack on it, or if maybe these eyelets are only meant for fenders... the last time i definitely piled on the weight (jandd expedition rack plus a good 60 pounds a few times) and then happened to notice at the end of a tour that one of the screws was totally loose.
advice? should i maybe go with an alternative mounting strategy this time?
