I've had great luck with Axiom racks. When I did my little French tour, I had an Axiom rack on the back sporting Arkel T-42s containing seven weeks worth of stuff, including digital cameras, a laptop, several books, clothes, toiletries, and on top of the rack I had my canvas rucksacks tied down. The front rack was a Delta with Arkel T-28s that carried very lightweight things. The front rack was completely destroyed by the end of the trip and I tossed it out rather than bring it home. The rear one, the Axiom, still hauls all my groceries and many library books as sturdily as the day I put it on. I've just bought another one for my single speed beater. Both were around $30 each. I almost bought the OMM, but thought I'd try out the Axiom first and when it worked well here, I just went ahead and used it overseas.
